Eat to Live, Live to Love! "Aunt Lena's Cucina', More Than a Cookbook!
Portland, Oregon, December 2nd 2008. Aunt Lena, a.k.a. Anne-Louise Sterry has just published her new cookbook, Aunt Lena's Cucina, and it is more than a cook book. Eat to live and live to love! That's the underlying message in this wonderful collection of Italian-American recipes brought to your table by the irrepressible Aunt Lena. And not surprisingly these simple to prepare family recipes make perfect sense in a world where everyone is concerned about nutrition and a healthy way of life. Good food, a good life and love are intertwined absolutely in every recipe. From ingredients available nearly everywhere it is possible to make dishes that, as Aunt Lena observes, "Show some respect!" Not just for the food and the people who eat it but for yourself. Lavishly illustrated with glamorous pictures of Aunt Lena herself, Aunt Lena's Cucina is that rare combination of guide to life, recipes and coffee table book. Available now at www.blurb.com and at events to be announced. 
Aunt Lena is the creation of Anne-Louise Sterry, an internationally known speaker, storyteller and singer. Aunt Lena is the notorious, unpredictable, yet almost prescient distributor of "Cutting Edge Mediterranean Wisdom". She is the Italian Aunt whose view of life, love, husbands and food does not just bring a smile to people's faces but actually goes a little deeper into their lives and makes a real difference to them. 
When Aunt Lena says, "Ya Gotta Make Yer Own Gravy" this is not just domestic economy advice. No, it is the rough and accurate summation that in this world no-one is going to make you happy. Only you can do that. But when Aunt Lena says this she has a way of making it sound like the very next thing you will be doing. And ones own gravy does really taste better! 
Anne-Louise; and Aunt Lena; perform across America and Europe in concert and keynotes. She is a former nurse (still licensed), is a professional member of the National Speakers Association, a board member for the Clackamas County Arts Alliance, a member of Children's Music Network, Portland Songwriters Association, the National Storytelling Association and the Association for the Education of Young Children. Anne-Louise has recorded and produced five CDs of music and stories for families with more on the way. Her CD "Making Ravioli" won the Children's Music Web Award for Best Spoken Word Recording for Older Children in 2003. She teaches storytelling at the Masters Degree level through The Innovative Northwest Teacher for Portland State University. Her work includes keynote speaking and presentations on the subject of finding and choosing joy in life, not just now and then but for always.
