In this splendidly illustrated cookbook presenting some 100 recipes, the Venetian table and entertaining style are celebrated as never before. Although Italian cooking is enjoying an enormous popularity, the specialties of Venice's fascinating cuisine are less well known. With this long overdue cookbook - created by a five-star team of experts led by Adam D. Tihany with recipes by the Venetian chef Francesco Antonucci, text by Florence Fabricant, food artistry by Nir Adar, and photographs by Peter Pioppo - it is now possible to prepare the delicious foods of Venice in a home kitchen. This enticing book features clearly written, authentic recipes specially adapted for easy preparation with lively comments, inventive tips, and insights regarding Venice. The inspiring photographs, especially commissioned for this book, marvelously portray the dishes, often in a Venetian setting, capturing the essence of the fabled city.

This visually striking cookbook floats tuna carpaccio in an eddy of Venetian waters, courtesy of photographer Peter Pioppo. And while it's a truism that many lavishly illustrated cookbooks are knockouts, here this bears repeating. The volume's outstanding design places descriptive text squarely on the page, provides photos as off-center attractions that will detain and recipes stacked up in sidebars. Full-page color photos are often so artfully composed that one can forget they concern food at all. To read is to travel among enviable dinner tables, with glances cast at Venetian canals and fruit stalls, and pauses as readers may try to imagine whether they could produce equivalent results with pumpkin gnocchi, polenta with wild mushrooms or tuna ravioli with ginger. In most cases, the answer is yes-though perhaps with less fastidiously styled panache. Antonucci is the chef of Remi, the New York restaurant; Tihany is co-proprietor of the same, and of its cousins in Mexico City, Tel Aviv and elsewhere; Fabricant (Pleasure of the Table) is a New York Times writer.
