Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking: 150 Delicious and Simple Recipes Anyone Can Master

Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking: 150 Delicious and Simple Recipes Anyone Can Master Lowest new price: $20.20
Lowest used price: $20.75
List price: $35.00
Author: Lidia Matticchio Bastianich

In her beautifully illustrated new cookbook, Lidia Bastianich lays out a comprehensive curriculum of wise cooking tips--from the cutting board to the kitchen table. Channeling the instructive elements from her TV show, she teaches us that a good dose of common sense is the key ingredient to a stellar meal. As storyteller and chef, she draws on anecdotes to educate and illustrate. Recalling lessons learned from her mother, Erminia, and her grandmother Nonna Rosa, Lidia pays homage to the kitchen sages who inspired her.
Whether it's Citrus Roasted Veal, or Rustic Ricotta Tart, each recipe is a tangible feast. We learn to look at ingredients as both geographic and cultural indicators. In Campania, the region where mozzarella is king, we discover it best eaten three hours after preparation. In Genova we are taught that while focaccia had its basil origins in the Ligurain culinary tradition, the herbs and flavorings will change from region to region; as home chefs, we can experiment with rosemary or oregano or olives or onions! When it's time for dessert, Lidia draws on the scared customs of nuns in Italian monasteries and convents and reveals the secret to rice pudding with a blessing.
Lidia's Commonsense Guide to Italian Cooking is a collection of 150 delectable recipes, told with commonsense cooking wisdom, that teaches us how create simple, seasonal Italian dishes with grace, confidence and love.

Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking

Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking Lowest new price: $17.49
Lowest used price: $7.91
List price: $35.00
Author: Marcella Hazan
Brand: Alfred A. Knopf

Almost twenty years ago, with the publication of The Classic Italian Cook Book, followed by More Classic Italian Cooking, Marcella Hazan introduced Americans to a whole new world of Italian food. As Roy Andries de Groot wrote, “Marcella’s book is the most authentic guide to Italian food ever written in the U.S. Where other authors failed, Marcella has brilliantly succeeded in capturing (and conveying to the reader on every page) the feel, the aromatic scent, the subtle nuances of fresh country flavors and, above all, the easy uncomplication of Italian food prepared in the Italian style.”

Now a new generation is ready to master the art of Italian cooking, and their bible will be Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking—this new volume that combines the two books, updates and expanded throughout. Designed as a basic manual for cooks on every level—from beginners to accomplished professionals—it offers both an accessible and comprehensive guide to techniques and ingredients and a collection of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire.

Perhaps more than any other person, Marcella Hazan is responsible for bringing Italian cuisine into the homes of American cooks. We're not talking spaghetti and meatballs here--Hazan's cuisine consists of polenta, risotto, squid braised with tomatoes and white wine, sautéed swiss chard with olive oil and garlic.... Twenty years ago, when Hazan first exploded into the American consciousness with The Classic Italian Cook Book and More Classic Italian Cooking, such recipes were revolutionary. With time, however, these classic dishes have become much-beloved family favorites.

Now a new generation is ready to be introduced to Marcella Hazan's way with food, and in Essentials of Italian Cooking Hazan combines her two earlier works into one update and expanded volume. In addition to the delicious collection of recipes, this book serves as a basic manual for cooks of every skill level. Recipes have been revised to reduce fat content, and a whole new chapter full of fundamental information about herbs, spices, and cheeses used in Italian kitchens--as well as details on how to select specific ingredients--has been added. New chapters, new recipes--who could ask for more than Essentials of Italian Cooking?

An Introduction to Lidia's Favorite Recipes by Lidia Bastianich

I have written seven cookbooks thus far, and I'm so happy to have earned a place in your cookbook library. I'm sure that, as you read and cooked your way through each book, you found recipes that became your favorites. Some might be reliable recipes that are easy to cook, and others are probably more difficult recipes that are worth the effort, but my hope is that all of them are dishes that your family loves and that became part of your own traditions. As readers tell me about their experiences around the table, it's become clear that if I collected those favorite recipes and compiled them all accessibly in one book, it might be just the Lidia cookbook you are looking for. And here it is, just for you: Lidia's Favorite Recipes.

These recipes include not only your favorites, but mine as well, like My Mother's Chicken and Potatoes. It is a recipe that has remained a family favorite for the last four generations and I'm sure it had its family roots well before that. It has been slightly altered through the generations, but the deliciousness of this comfort food remains. There are also recipes that represent the flavors and story of my childhood, such as Polenta, and Swiss Chard Potatoes.

There are recipes from some of my unforgettable trips, which will have you traveling through the regions of Italy—making Scaloppine Saltimbocca will transport you straight to Rome; Ziti with Broccoli Rabe and Sausages will take you to Puglia, in the heel of Italy; and Risotto con Porcini and Veal Ossobuco will make you feel like you're in Milan. Then there are recipes that speak of the Italian American story, which can be found in the fl avors of my Spaghetti and Meatballs, Chicken Parmigiana, Baked Clams, Zucchini Roll- Ups, and many more. And as I put this book together, I added some of my new favorites, which I know you will try and love.

Family is very important to me, and I love to cook for my family and friends, so I included the simple and flavorful Italian dishes that you will love to prepare for your family and friends, like Minestrone, Meatloaf with Ricotta, and Sausage and Peppers. These recipes all make family-size quantities, and can also be divided and stored in the freezer for unexpected company, last-minute family visits, or even "I have no time to cook" nights. What's important is that these are all easy and delicious, and the warm, familiar flavors will bring your family straight to the table. Today more than ever we want and need to gather around the table with our family and friends to escape our daily distractions, and what better way than with food that luscious, nutritious, and cooked with love.

For most of these recipes, the ingredients are affordable and easy to find. This is especially true if you cook by the seasons—and, after all, that is the best way to cook. Today all of us care about eating consciously, sustainably, and responsibly to keep our environment safe for future generations. Cooking and eating seasonal and local food, and not wasting a bit of it, is something all of us can do to make a difference while enjoying meals we love. A favorite dish is timeless, no matter your budget or season, and I think you'll find that these favorite dishes of mine will remain your favorites as well.

Continue cooking, and tutti a tavola a mangiare,

Lidia Bastianich

Author: Jeff Michaud

Before award-winning chef Jeff Michaud ever opened the doors of his acclaimed Philadelphia restaurants, he spent three years in northern Italy as a culinary apprentice to master butchers and chefs, immersing himself in the culture and cuisine of the old country. It is safe to say that he never anticipated the romance that would ensue. Eating Italy is a delicious, funny, and mesmerizing spin through the boot, teaching true heirloom techniques and telling Jeff ’s culinary and personal love story (he met his wife when she came into the restaurant one night for dinner, and to this day, he hasn’t forgotten what she ordered).

Part inventive cookbook, part travel narrative, each chapter of Eating Italy explores a village or town in northern Italy, unveiling the unique culinary and cultural experience it has to offer. The reader experiences his journey from “Paladina: The Butcher’s Apprentice” to “Trescore Balneario: Our Big Italian Wedding” in dishes like Apricot and Chanterelle Salad, Swordfish Pancetta with Fennel Zeppole, Pheasant Lasagne, and Blood Orange Crostata with Bitter Chocolate. Each authentic recipe serves to mark his professional growth, learning from some of the most skilled chefs in Italy. Vivid photography of Italian culture, people, and landscapes are dispersed throughout, allowing the reader a glimpse of northern Italia from a kitchen far away.
