From little snacks and tidbits (spuntini) to the glories of a true Italian brodo, from fresh pastas and crespelle (sfoglie) to sweets (dolci), Italian Cooking at Home explores the diverse cuisines and famous dishes from Italy's important culinary regions.
The authors provide recipes for traditional favorites like a decadent lasagne, a creamy risotto, a classic brodetto di pesce, and tiramisù, as well as dishes that may be less familiar: erbazzone, a savory pie of pancetta and Swiss chard; gnocchi soffiati alla parigina, delicate potato dumplings baked until puffed; pizzoccheri alla valtellinese, buckwheat pasta with cabbage and Bitto cheese; and affogato al caffè, gelato "drowned" in espresso. In addition, preserved foods (conserve) and the resourceful dishes born from a frugal but inspired culinary imagination (cucina povera) demonstrate the passion and playfulness of the Italian cook. Sumptuous full-color photographs show finished dishes and illustrate cooking techniques. Wine pairing notes give you more than a few suggestions, offering flavor notes that help you find the perfect complement to any dish.
The book gives readers a tour of the many splendors of Italian cooking, beginning with a thorough introductionto the foods, cheeses, and wines of Italy's many distinct regions, followed by chapters covering spuntini, conserve, brodi, gnocchi, carni, dolci, and more. For home cooks who want to experience truly authentic Italian food in their own kitchens, Italian Cooking at Home is the perfect guide.From the Back Cover:
