Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of public radio’s The Splendid Table®, invites you into her kitchen with the third installment of her e-book series, Eating In with Lynne Rossetto Kasper. This latest issue, Italian Holidays, is a full-fledged Italian-inspired menu that can get you from Thanksgiving to the New Year.
In Italian Holidays, Lynne explains the Italian way of eating (slowly and happily). It includes a collection of antipasti, pasta, three main course choices (including a delicious take on the holiday bird), side dishes and show-stopping desserts. The menu is easily tailored to feeding whoever joins your table, no matter their dining preferences, be they vegan, vegetarian or omnivore. Recipes include Roasted Peppers with Toasted Almond Crumbs, Mozzarella Bites in Fresh Cream, Broken Bridegroom Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes, Fresh Parsley and Lemon, Sicilian Fish Soup, Roast Turkey en Porchetto, Risotto of Cinnamon-Pepper Roasted Squash, Garlic-Glazed Tuscan Kale, Frozen Italian Trifle and many more for creating a memorable holiday feast.
You will also learn about unique Italian cheeses, mussels, olives, and anchovies, and why apple cider vinegar may be the very best buy in vinegars. You’ll get a lesson in how to cook risotto ahead of time and an invaluable guide to buying your holiday turkey — they are not all created equal.
Lynne is the guru of all things food to the worldwide listeners of her award-winning public radio show, The Splendid Table® from American Public Media. To Lynne, recipes are akin to the fingers of your hand; they can stand on their own or flex in many directions. And that's what Lynne does in every issue of Eating In with Lynne Rossetto Kasper, a combination of in-depth cooking lessons and the diary of a curious and highly opinionated eater. Each issue provides a full weekend menu, variations to turn leftovers into new dishes, tips, ingredient advice and audio clips from The Splendid Table®.
The Splendid Table®, public radio’s award-winning, national food show from American Public Media, taps into the latest from the food world with experts of every stripe. Heard on over 350 public radio stations, host Lynne Rossetto Kasper explores the entire spectrum of food: from cheese making, to tracking down bargain wines, to the science behind a great cup of coffee, to finding the best little greasy spoons in America. The Splendid Table has been at the forefront of food issues and policies since its inception.
In 1969, when Lynne began cooking monthly Chinese banquets for her friends in New York (obsessively researching each dish), she never imagined she’d have a career in food. Those banquets led to an insatiable curiosity about the dimensions of food, and that turned into the career Lynne never expected.
Between writing, teaching, lecturing on food and culture, and her explorations, Lynne’s research has covered much of America and Europe. In 1995 she and producer Sally Swift, working with American Public Media, created public radio’s national food show, The Splendid Table®.
Between her books and the show, Lynne has received numerous James Beard and IACP awards, including Cookbook of the Year from both The James Beard Foundation and the IACP for her first book The Splendid Table. The Splendid Table® radio program has received multiple honors, including four Best National Talk Show Clarion Awards, two James Beard awards for Best National Radio Show on Food, and several Gracie awards from American Women in Radio and Television.
Lynne is a member of the James Beard Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America. She lectures on food and culture and teaches cooking on both sides of the Atlantic and is a popular keynote speaker. More information is available at splendidtable.org.
