Overview

The fresh, robust flavors of Italian grilled sandwiches.

A panini is an Italian-inspired pressed sandwich enjoyed throughout Italy and, increasingly, in North American cafés, restaurants and kitchens. Italians regard panini as fast food thanks to its easy preparation, which also accounts for its success in North America. Sales of panini makers have skyrocketed, with small appliance manufacturers releasing new models each year.

Tiffany Collins provides great recipes that replicate the bistro experience and maximize the use of a home panini maker. Among the recipes for this vibrant, flavorful food are:

  • Salami, prosciutto, mozzarella panini with roasted red peppers; Philly cheesesteak panini
  • Bacon, spinach and hard-boiled egg panini; smoked salmon, red onion, cream cheese and caper panini
  • Sweet Italian sausage, provolone and tomato sauce panini; hummus, red onion and Swiss cheese panini
  • Pulled pork panini; Tuscan tuna and white bean panini; shrimp club panini
  • Cuban panini; smores panini; sliced beef, caramelized onions and gorgonzola panini
  • Smoked turkey, brie and Granny Smith apple panini; south of the border turkey panini with perfect guacamole.

This Italian tradition can now be experienced at home and enjoyed by the whole family.

I may have to get a panini press after all.
Reader Views - Irene Watson
I don't know of anyone that doesn't love a Panini and making one is actually quite simple. And, the best part? You don't have to have a Panini maker; you just need a griddle and a heavy object to press down with. Of course having a maker would certainly give you the grill marks and make the Panini more authentic. For the purpose of a review we are asked to test out three recipes. I love basil pesto in a Panini, therefore was on a hunt to find one using it. The one I decided to try first was Chicken Pesto Panini. I already had fresh pesto and, when checking the recipe provided in this book, it was exactly the same. The recipe calls for Italian rolls but I used ciabatta instead. The other ingredients were chicken breast, provolone cheese, spinach leaves, oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, and slices of red onion. Delicious!! I was intrigued with the section on Leftovers Panini. Looking at the index I realized I can make a Panini out of almost any leftovers. So, with pot roast on hand I
shredded the meat and placed it on the bottom of a slice of sourdough bread. Top that with horseradish mayo, slices of red onion and crumbles of blue cheese and you've got yourself a great tasting Panini. The third recipe I tested was Cheesy Beanie Panini. Flour tortillas are filled with mashed pinto beans and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Grill and then top with ranch dressing, lettuce, tomatoes, and salsa and you have a great lunch. Also, you now have a Panini rather than a burrito. I see some other recipes that I'll be trying and, from what I can see, my imagination can wander. As well, I'll be investing in a Panini maker because they are a hit in our home. The recipes are simple and most of the ingredients can be found in any kitchen pantry. If not, the nearby grocery store sure does. If you love Panini you can't afford to be without 200 Best Panini Recipes.

This easy to read cookbook is a perfect companion for a panini press. Great gift idea to pair the 2 together. Tons of beautiful photographs throughout the book will inspire even the most novice and inexperienced "chefs". The Panini Dippers are a great appetizer to serve at a holiday cocktail party because they are the perfect finger food since they won't fall apart; the Mixed Berry and Mascarpone Panini with Toasted Almonds is a rich, decadent dessert to serve anytime, but especially when fresh berries are available. There's even a chapter dedicated to kids!

I'm not a great cook but I've made over a dozen recipes out of this book for dinner, bridal showers, and wine tastings for friends. I have received compliments from guests that are serious food coinsurers, pastry chefs and die hard eaters. This book is great and calls for ingredients that I have or can run to the market and find it. Any level of cook can find this book helpful. Chef Collins knows how to mix it up and what talent and creativity to do so with 200 recipes. This is a book that I will live by forever. No more boring, cold sandwiches for my family and friends!

Great pictures and very inspiring. They range from breakfast panini's like french toast panini to even dessert panini's. There's so many that I want to try. There final chapter has the condiment recipes like mayonaise combos, dressings and sauces. Well worth the money.
