Publishers Text

As a member of a large, food-loving Italian family, Valerie Bertinelli has always equated food with good times and togetherness. But at one point her love of food threatened not only her health, but her livelihood as an actress, when personal demons drove her to overeat and make poor food choices that caused her weight to balloon by 50 pounds. Now happily svelte, remarried, and riding a new career high, Valerie has made peace with food, once again giving it a central - yet considered - place in her home and family celebrations. "One Dish at a Time" offers an intimate look into the beloved actress' life and home - and in the kitchen in particular - where she prepares more than 100 time-honoured dishes rooted in her Italian heritage. For the first time, Bertinelli will put to paper the treasured family recipes that have been passed on by word of mouth from her extended family of aunts, uncles and grandmother. Throughout, she shares her approach to enjoying the comfort foods of her childhood; portion control and mindful indulgence are key. Each recipe will feature nutrition information to give readers the information they need to make informed, reasonable food choices, just as Valerie does.
