Welcome to HOMEGROWN! You're not alone in your Italiaphilia :) I just got a copy of A Moveable Feast and will read it once I'm done with Clementine In The Kitchen. Looking forward to hearing more about your garden and your grill.
That's on my list as well! Clementine is a book that was revived by Ruth Reichl's Gourmet Book Series. Not sure if it's purely non-fiction or not, but it's a delightful read. A summary from Amazon:
For more than a dozen years before World War II, the Chamberlain family lived and learned to eat in the tiny cathedral town of Senlis, France. Their Burgundian cook, Clémentine, presided over their kitchen in France, and later in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The alert, good-natured cuisinère is the heroine of Clémentine in the Kitchen, first published in 1943 and happily reissued in the Modern Library Food series. The book is a gem: part gastronomic diary and part cookbook (over 170 recipes are included), it also evokes, perhaps most interestingly, Clémentine's affect on a small town in pre-"gourmet" America, and its influence on her.
