The Italian Job by Mark Worrall +

The Italian Job: A Chelsea Thriller starring Antonio Conte Part One by Mark Worrall
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.05 MB
Overview: The Italian Job (a Chelsea thriller starring Antonio Conte: Part One) chronicles Conte’s dramatic first campaign as Blues manager. Forging a remarkable emotional bond with players and supporters alike via a unique blend of charisma, passion, philosophy and humility, Antonio Conte transformed the London club into silverware contenders once more… but football’s roller coaster ride had some terrifying surprises in store.

Glorious unpredictability is an expression that Chelsea author and season ticket holder Mark Worrall coined some time ago to describe the nerve-shredding drama that regularly envelops Stamford Bridge… be that snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, or turning adversity into triumph. The Italian Job recounts exactly how Conte took glorious unpredictability to another level. With more outrageous plot twists than a Hitchcock thriller, week-by-week, game-by-game the tension mounts as the 2016/17 season heads towards a suspenseful conclusion.

"Every game, every goal and everything in-between. The Italian Job is the definitive account of Antonio Conte’s first season as Chelsea manager."

Overview: An authentic guide to the festive, mouthwatering sweets of Southern Italy, including regional specialties that are virtually unknown in the US, as well as variations on more popular desserts such as cannoli, biscotti, and gelato.
As a follow-up to her acclaimed My Calabria, Rosetta Costantino collects 75 favorite desserts from her Southern Italian homeland, including the regions of Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia, and Sicily. These areas have a history of rich traditions and tasty, beautiful desserts, many of them tied to holidays and festivals. For example, in the Cosenza region of Calabria, Christmas means plates piled with grispelle (warm fritters drizzled with local honey) and pitta ‘mpigliata (pastries filled with walnuts, raisins, and cinnamon). For the feast of Carnevale, Southern Italians celebrate with bugie ("liars"), sweet fried dough dusted in powdered sugar, meant to tattle on those who sneak off with them by leaving a wispy trail of sugar.
