I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti: A Memoir | [Giulia Melucci]

I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti: A Memoir

From failure to fusilli, this deliciously hilarious story of Giulia Melucci's fizzled romances and the mouth-watering recipes she used to seduce her men, smooth over the lumps, and console herself when the relationships flamed out. From an affectionate alcoholic, to the classic New York City commitment-phobe, to a hipster aged past his sell date, and not one, but two novelists with Peter Pan complexes, Giulia has cooked for them all.

Publisher's Summary

From failure to fusilli, this deliciously hilarious story of Giulia Melucci's fizzled romances and the mouth-watering recipes she used to seduce her men, smooth over the lumps, and console herself when the relationships flamed out. From an affectionate alcoholic, to the classic New York City commitment-phobe, to a hipster aged past his sell date, and not one, but two novelists with Peter Pan complexes, Giulia has cooked for them all. She suffers each disappointment with resolute cheer (after a few tears) and a bowl of pastina (recipe included) and has lived to tell the tale so that other women may go out, hopefully with greater success, and if that's not possible, at least have something good to eat.

Peppered throughout Giulia's delightful and often poignant remembrances are fond recollections of her mother's cooking, the recipes she learned from her, and many she invented on her own inspired by the men in her life. Listeners will howl at Giulia's boyfriend-littered past and swoon over her irresistible culinary creations.

Audio includes 66 recipes - all servings for two, but can be eaten alone.

    "For Lovers of Julie and Julia . . ."

    Ok, I love good food, wine and autobiographies so this was right of up my alley. Very interesting and honest story about a lady's journey through love and life. Reminiscent of Sex and the City with a single girl and her loves with the backdrop of NYC - but this one has more analogies about eating and drinking good food vs. designer clothes as one of its main themes. One thing - why do audiobooks never include the darn recipes as an attachment. I Hate That. The reality is that most of us listen to the books while driving, exercising or doing another activity where we can't stop and write a recipe. A lot of her recipes seemed really good and easy but can't refer to my Ipod like a hard book.
