This book is a culinary adventure that teaches the reader about different types of pasta. Chef Camille Corgi, the main character, introduces the reader to a different type of pasta for each letter of the alphabet. Each type of pasta not only represents each letter of the alphabet, but the reader will also learn how that pasta is made and how it is served. The rhythmic stanzas transcend the reader to different lands through descriptive meals and traditions. By combining pasta and literature, the author hopes to encourage families to try new foods, experiment with exotic cuisines, and make memories with family recipes!
