Early on in her career as TV chef, Mary Ann Esposito explained to her viewers: "There is no such thing as Italian food, there is only regional food." In this companion book to her PBS series, America's favorite Italian home cook tours through the regions of Veneto, Emilia-Romanga, Tuscany, Campania, and Sicily, and comes away with 130 all-new regional recipes.
From dishes like Risotto all'Amarone (Risotto in Amarone Wine) from the Veneto to Piramidi di Melanzane alla Nonna Galasso (Grandmother Galasso's Eggplant Pyramids) from Campania, Esposito's millions of fans will find many new delights that will send them nella cucina. Mary Ann has also included little essays on each region, a directory of mail-order sources, plus the most-requested recipes over the first ten years of her PBS show, including Spezzatelle (Dandelion Soufflé), Zuppa di Polpettine (Baked Meatball Soup), and Tortine di Pesche (Little Peach Cakes).
