Dregni_Never coverEric Dregni will be at Eataly NYC Downtown on Friday, October 12 at 2:00 p.m. for a signing of his book Never Trust a Thin Cook and Other Lessons from Italy's Culinary Capital.


I simply want to live in the place with the best food in the world. This dream led Eric Dregni from Minnesota to Italy, first to Milan and eventually to a small, fog-covered town to the north: Modena, the birthplace of balsamic vinegar, Ferrari, and Luciano Pavarotti. Never Trust a Thin Cook is a classic American abroad tale, brimming with adventures both expected and unexpected, awkward social moments, and most important, very good food.


"This is a splendid book for anyone who appreciates Italy and its people and to reminisce about their own experiences. It is funny, educational and enduring. Eric Dregni, the raconteur, uses his skillful writing to embrace each and every tale. I highly recommend this fabulous book, read it, you will not be sorry." —The Boston Post-Gazette


"What begins as a journey through Italy’s rich culinary traditions soon becomes a revealing portrait of how Italians live and how their culture differs from America’s. Anecdotes about Dregni's adventures and mishaps abound in this book about life in unpredictable Italy." —Italian American Magazine
