About this title


Authentic, amazing Italian cooking made easy

This sumptuously photographed guide to cooking all things Italian in the home kitchen will win over both beginning and experienced cooks with authentic and inventive recipes and step-by-step guidance from the experts at the CIA. Covering a variety of dishes from snacks, pickles, and preserves to pasta, meat, fish, and dessert, Italian Cooking is the perfect primer for fresh and flavorful Italian cuisine. With rustic focaccias, long-simmered soups, and entrées with aromatic herbs, these vivid recipes are irresistible. Wine suggestions and mouthwatering photographs accompany the recipes.

  • Includes more than 150 fantastic, approachable Italian recipes
  • Covers chapters on Gli Spuntini (Snacks and Little Bites), I Crudi (Raw Dishes), Le Minestre (Soupe), La Pasta Secca (Dry Pasta), La Sfoglia (Fresh Pasta), I Pesci (Fish), Le Carni (Meat), and more
  • Features tantalizing photos by Francesco Tonelli that illustrate cooking techniques and provide plenty of inspiration for the home cook


Italian Cooking offers a grand tour through Italian cuisine, covering regional cuisines, wines, and histories along the way.

From the Inside Flap:

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.
