Overview

DEBI MAZAR and GABRIELE CORCOS are ambassadors of contemporary Tuscan cooking. In Extra Virgin, food, family, and style come together in a celebration of the pleasures of the rustic Italian table with 120 recipes for simple yet exquisite meals that are accessible, full of fresh flavor, and easy to prepare. Gabriele is a traditional Italian with a big heart, and Debi is an outgoing, brash New York City girl. Their sassy and playful exchanges illuminate what’s important in everyday life: good food and a lot of love.

Ranging from traditional antipasti and soups to their spin on entrees, pizzas, and desserts, recipes include Pecorino and Honey Dip, a sweet and salty way to start a meal; tangy, luscious Grilled Apricots with Goat Cheese Ricotta, inspired by wild Tuscan apricot trees; and Sausage and Beans, which offers hints of fennel in a Tuscan red sauce. Here, too, are Braised Artichokes softened in guanciale-infused oil, Breakfast Pizza, and Coffee Granita just as Italians make it.

So flag these recipes, get sauce on them, let splashes of olive oil mark the pages—and invite Debi and Gabriele’s charisma and passion for cooking to spill into your kitchen.

    BEAUTIFUL!! I bought this cookbook the morning it came out. I ha

    BEAUTIFUL!! I bought this cookbook the morning it came out. I have watched their show and hoped they would write a cookbook. I was not disappointed. This cookbook is full of wonderful recipes made with fresh ingredients. The inside of the book is a work of art. I truly can say this is one of the more exceptional cookbooks I have seen and you can tell it is a labor of love. I would love to give this as gifts. Brava Debi & Gabriele from a small, hometown cook and mother who loves to feed her family wonderful food.

    The Extra Virgin Cookbook by Gabriele Corcos and Debi Mazar is E

    The Extra Virgin Cookbook by Gabriele Corcos and Debi Mazar is EXCELLENT! It’s a cookbook about home cooked authentic Italian food from the wonderful countryside of Tuscany, Italy. This cook book isn’t like any other cook book with just a list of ingredients and recipes, this cook book comes from Gabriele and Debi’s heart and soul, you can see their exceptional love for cooking. I love how it shares personal recipes and memories behind each recipe that lets you connect more with the chef that wrote the cook book plus I love any story about Italy and who better than to hear them from than native Gabriele Corcos .. I love how he welcomed us into his childhood memories and pictures from his home,and his family connects with food. Their recipes they share are very simple yet totally delicious and packed with flavor! The layout of the cookbook flows nicely and the pictures are bold and colorful definitely an eye pleaser, I love how they show what the dish looks like before you make it. I also love their personal family photos you can see their everlasting love for each other, their family and the art of cooking. I recommend everyone to buy this cookbook if you want a wholesome cook book on your self and GREAT recipes, also urge you to watch their Extra Virgin Show on the cooking channel. They are wonderful people and I’m huge fans of theirs and this cook book was definitely a gift to the public!

    I received this book for free from Blogging from books program in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
