From acclaimed Philadelphia chef Marc Vetri comes a celebration of handcrafted, regional Italian cooking that advocates a hands-on, back-to-the-basics approach to cooking. Slow-cooked meats, homemade breads, and flavorful pastas are the traditional comfort-food classics that Italians have been roasting, baking, curing, and making in their own kitchens for generations--dishes that people actually want to cook and eat. Home cooks of every skill level will revel in the 120 recipes, such as sweet Fig and Chestnut Bread, rich Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi, savory Slow-Roasted Lamb Shoulder, and fragrant Apple Fritters. But Rustic Italian Food is much more than just a collection of recipes. With detailed, step-by-step instructions for making terrines, dry-cured salami, and cooked sausage; a thorough guide to bread and pasta making; and a primer on classic Italian preserves and sauces, Rustic Italian Food is also an education in kitchen fundamentals. In this book Marc Vetri connects us directly to the essence of Italian food.

Not so long ago, Italian food was regarded as a poor man's gruel-little more than pizza, macaroni with sauce, and red wines in a box. Here, John Mariani shows how the Italian immigrants to America created, through perseverance and sheer necessity, an Italian-American food culture, and how it became a global obsession. The book begins with the Greek, Roman, and Middle Eastern culinary traditions before the boot-shaped peninsula was even called "Italy," then takes readers on a journey through Europe and across the ocean to America alongside the poor but hopeful Italian immigrants who slowly but surely won over the hearts and minds of Americans by way of their stomachs. Featuring evil villains such as the Atkins diet and French chefs, this is a rollicking tale of how Italian cuisine rose to its place as the most beloved fare in the world, through the lives of the people who led the charge. With savory anecdotes from these top chefs and restaurateurs: - Mario Batali - Danny Meyer - Tony Mantuano - Michael Chiarello - Giada de Laurentiis - Giuseppe Cipriani - Nigella Lawson And the trials and triumphs of these restaurants: - Da Silvano - Spiaggia - Bottega - Union Square Cafe - Maialino - Rao's - Babbo - Il Cantinori

When Mark McEwan takes a much-needed holiday, he likes more than any-thing to head for Italy. His love affair with ingredient-driven Italian cuisine dates back to his earliest days in the business, when his pastas and risottos were a big part of what put him on the culinary map. When McEwan was drawing up plans for a new, fourth restaurant, Italian food was a clear choice. Composed entirely of recipes from that restaurant, Fabbrica, "Rustic Italian "features a wide range of dishes perfectly suited to every occasion. The theme is authenticity, the flavours large and seductive. All the recipes are easily manageable for the home cook, and following the format of McEwan's highly acclaimed first book, "Great Food at Home, "all are highly flexible. The only essential ingredient is passion--both for cooking and for enjoying its results.

In Mark McEwan's Fabbrica, celebrity chef Mark McEwan turns his very able hand to Italian cooking-the world's most universally appealing cuisine. Many of the recipes included were developed at his newest hit restaurant, Fabbrica. Others have evolved from McEwan's Italian favourites from the past at his critically acclaimed restaurants North 44, Bymark and One. And some come direct from the McEwan family table. All of them have been written with the home cook in mind, which is to say with great flexibility-right down to including instructions for alternate ingredients. The range of dishes offers something for everyone, from simple panini, pizza and pasta to wonderful salads, risottos, and authentic Italian fish, meat and poultry dishes. Many recipes can be prepared in a flash; others take a bit more time and are ideal for the weekend with family and friends. What they all have in common is great flavour.
