Recipe by the Book: Olives al Forno for Whereabouts

April 27th, 2021

In Whereabouts, Jhumpa Lahiri, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Lowland and Interpreter of Maladies pushes herself to a new level of artistic achievement, writing in Italian and translating into English herself. This lush, meditative, and moving novel follows a woman questioning her place in the world as she wanders the parks, piazzas, museums, stores, and cafés near her home in an unnamed Italian city.

Elegant, poetic, and steeped in the feel of Italy, this book pairs perfectly with the Italian cuisine on display in Nancy Silverton’s The Mozza Cookbook. As you enjoy the zesty yet unctuous flavors of Nancy’s Olives al Forno, you’ll feel like you’re sitting next to Lahiri’s narrator, observing the sites and reflecting on your own life and loves. Plus, they make the perfect party snack for your next book club gathering!
