Overview

In this classic Italian cookbook, restaurateur Alvaro Maccioni presents a selection of authentic recipes that capture the robust flavors of real Tuscan country cooking. Inspired by the family meals cooked by his mother and grandmother, Alvaro unveils the secrets to such favorites as Agnello in Salsa—lamb flavored with garlic, parsley, red chilies, and rosemary, simmered with white wine and tomatoes—and Pasta d'Estate, a pasta salad with pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach. Traditional sweets such as rice pudding with lemon and cinnamon, peaches with amaretto, and tiramisu complete this feast of a book. Tips are also provided for using the freshest ingredients and adding the right touches to bring the flavors of Italy into any kitchen, while evocative descriptions of the diverse landscape, the feast day celebrations, and idyllic alfresco meals convey a captivating picture of country life.
