Giuliano Bugialli’s Foods of Italy

Hotel Stories

I love the printed word. Whether words are in a magazine, book or online, I am a total bibliophile and have worked on many books: as an editor, as an author, as a contributing writer, as a proof-reader or caption writer, and as a fact-checker.

For Rodale, I served as Editor of “Cooking Organic Made Easy,” which was published in late 2009. For this collection of recipes, which I compiled from previously published recipes in Rodale’s magazine archives, I wrote the cookbook’s introduction.

For Giuliano Bugialli’s Foods of Italy, I was asked by this famous Italian cooking historian and authority to contribute all the captions. First published in 1985, it was and remains a best-selling cookbook from Stewart, Tabori & Chang Publishers, New York.

“Hotel Stories, published in 2002 by Assouline Publishing Inc., is a colorful history of some of the world’s most famous, and infamous, hotels, resorts and “legendary hideaways”. The book’s editor asked me to both proof the text and fast-check this entire work.

I also help people write books and their memoirs. In 2016, former OSS-CIA officer Peter M. F. Sichel, whose family is in the global wine trade, asked me to help him organize, outline and write his memoir entitled: “The Secrets of My Life: Vintner, Prisoner, Soldier, Spy.”
