Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

It has been a very long time since my last post, with very good reason. I have been extremely busy both in my office and in my cucina, creating a new cook book just for you.

CELEBRATIONS WITH CARMELA'S CUCINA will be released at the end of this month. It can now be ordered on line through my web site at

The book includes 14 complete menus around celebrations that we enjoy through out the year. Fourteen chapters of new and unique recipes that compliment the holidays that we love to celebrate. With wine pairing suggestions made by my husband and wine enthusiast, Bob Hobbins. The beautiful pictures of the food I created were photographed by Erica Loeks a very talented photographer.

And my earlier book, Carmela's Cucina is also being printed again, so that you can also purchase a copy of a very classic Italian cook book.

These books make excellent holiday gifts and until the end of the year I am offering a baker's dozen, that is buy 12 books and get the 13th book free. Now that's a deal!

To learn more about my book signing events around the mid-west, cooking classes, and culinary tours please visit my website at

I hope to see you at a book signing event, cooking class or on a culinary tour in the near future.

Make every day a celebration.

Carmela Tursi Hobbins
