Pomp and Sustenance: Twenty-Five Centuries of Sicilian Food

Mary Taylor Simeti, Author Henry Holt & Company $15.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8050-1601-7
Sicily's rich peasant heritage is celebrated in culinary terms; street foods, convent confections and ice cream are among the delectables surveyed. ``Simeti writes exquisitely of the foods of Odysseus and the cult of Aphrodite, of capers `trailing long sprays of coin-shaped leaves,' '' said PW. ``Classic recipes are presented as meticulously as historical data.'' Illustrated. (May)
