About this title


This book is a tribute to Italy's many glorious vegetables, from the bright, orange-fleshed pumpkins of autumn to the tender green fava beans of early spring. Organized by course, this lavishly photographed cookbook lauds the latest dining trend—the vegetable's starring role at the center of the plate. Cooks of all skill levels will enjoy more than 100 recipes mixing tradition and innovation, ranging from the basics (Fresh Spinach Pasta Dough and Fresh Tomato Sauce) to the seasonal (Spring Risotto with Green and White Asparagus) to savory (Grilled Lamb Spiedini on a Bed of Caponata) and sweet (Pumpkin Gelato). This indispensable recipe collection will appeal to Italian cuisine lovers looking to celebrate vegetables in any meal, every day.

From the Inside Flap:

Domenica Marchetti's childhood memories of Italian summers, where nearly every day began with a trip to the farmers' market, are the inspiration behind these more than 100 recipes showcasing Italy's glorious vegetables. Sniffing, poking, and prodding (and then haggling over) such fresh offerings as elegant, long-necked fennel; dark, crimped leaves of Tuscan kale; the scarlet beauty of radicchio; and delicate baby zucchini with blossoms still attached was a family affair and the beginning of her life-long love of vegetables.

Italian home cooks prepare these vegetables with careful thought, mixing them into frittatas and savory tarts, letting them shine atop pizza, and giving them equal time with meat and seafood at the center of the meal.
Domenica does the same here, with such varied recipes as Cherry Tomato and Red Onion Focaccia, Roasted Beet and Carrot Salad with Toasted Fennel Seeds, Spring Risotto with Green and White Asparagus, and Smashed Green Beans and Potatoes with Pancetta.Preserves and condiments are also represented with such delights as Tomato Marmalade and Pickled Snacking Peppers, while essential basics such as Fresh Egg Pasta Dough, Simple Tomato Sauce, and Sauteed Rapini embrace the ease with which vegetables are incorporated into Italian-style meals.
These treasured recipes comprise a mix of tradition and innovation -- some handed down from previous generations, others collected during the author's travels throughout Italy, and more created in her home kitchen. She hopes they will inspire you to bring vegetables into the heart of your own kitchen as well.
