You don't need an addiction to real Italian cooking to lose yourself in these pages. You can read it as a travel book. As an adventure story.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Food photographer, writer, and editor Hirsheimer and chef Hamilton have worked for Saveur, Metropolitan Home, Cook's Illustrated, and Martha Stewart Living. In this seventh volume of Canal House Cooking, their New Jersey design studio's tri-annual publication, 67 rustic Italian recipes (e.g. Ricotta Gnocchi, Osso Bucco, and Gelato di Gianduia) are accompanied by evocative remembrances of Italian travels and artful photographs that recall Recipes from an Italian Summer and Jacob Kenedy's Bocca. The book lacks an index, but readers can find one at thecanalhouse.com. VERDICT Art, text, and recipes meet in this lovingly detailed cookbook, which will attract cooks who appreciate narrative and good design.
