The Holy Scripture

«Maria Luisa kann nicht anders» is not the first book on the cuisine of Villa Roncalli. It was however high time to produce a second as quickly as possible, the first being an irreplaceable unique risking to fall into pieces any moment due to the minor quality of the paper. Originally intended to record personal appointments – we are actually talking about an agenda, promotional gift of the car manufacturer Citroën – Sandra Scolastra made improper use of it by filling the lined pages with her recepes from 1979 onwards.

For more than thirty years this booklet has dwelled on a wooden shelf in the kitchen of Villa Roncalli, Luisa herself has added her own recipes to the collection. When Maria Luisa browses through the battered pile of paper, it’s less to find an information but rather to share a moment of affection with her mother. To her Maria Luisa has dedicated the wonderful book that has now been published, an editorial masterpiece regarding presentation, text and illustration.
