Overview

London’s hot-spot River Cafe has been seducing guests with its completely irresistible renderings of authentic regional Italian food for almost twenty years. Now, cofounders Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers, bestselling authors of the River Cafe cookbook series, present Italian Two Easy, a follow-up to their immensely popular Italian Easy, sharing 150 additional quick and easy recipes for everyone who loves Italian food but does not want to spend ages preparing it.

With just a small number of fresh ingredients and minimal effort, you can re-create the flavors of Italy in your home kitchen with recipes such as cucumber salad with mint and mascarpone, linguine with clams and white asparagus, beef tenderloin with red wine and horseradish, zucchini scapece, and hazelnut truffle cake. Organized into fourteen chapters, including Really Easy Soups, Salads, Tomato Pastas, Roast Meat, Italian Vegetables, and Chocolate & Coffee, the recipes are designed to save home cooks time at the end of a busy day without ever sacrificing flavor. From a dozen ways to highlight fresh mozzarella -- most ready in a matter of minutes -- to instructions for perfect, simply grilled fish, meats, and vegetables, Gray and Rogers’s Italian Two Easy will help bring your weeknight Italian meals to a new level.

Featuring 100 stunning full-color photographs illustrating the artistry that goes into each dish, Italian Two Easy makes it simpler than ever to achieve enviable results with the greatest of ease.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cutting live crabs, slow roasting a pork shoulder and skinning a bone-in eel don't usually call to mind "easy" cooking, but Gray and Rogers, cofounders of the River Cafe in London (and authors of the River Cafe cookbook series), include the above culinary tasks in their follow-up to 2004's Italian Easy. The authors have compiled a collection of 150 regional Italian recipes, haphazardly divided into chapters such as Mozzarella, Tomato Pasta and "Fish with...." The odd organization obscures a strong collection of appealing and time-conscious regional recipes such as Fried Eggplant, Basil and Tomato; Orecchiette, Tomato, Ricotta; Sea Bass Baked in Sea Salt; and Chocolate and Coffee Sorbet. Full-page color photos and a list of Italian food suppliers make the book somewhat user friendly, yet basic information such as serving sizes (listed away from recipes) and curiously placed headnotes, which warn of unusual ingredients or difficult preparation (placed at the end of instruction), are counterintuitive. (June) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
London's sophisticated River Cafe made its name with interpretations of regional Italian cuisine, and Gray and Rogers, the chef-proprietors, are the authors of five other enormously popular cookbooks. Their latest, the follow-up to Italian Easy, contains 150 new recipes for simple but vibrant dishes, in chapters such as "Really Easy Soups," "Birds with Wine," and "Chocolate and Coffee." Recipe titles are pared down, too: Green Bean, Mustard, for example, or Roast Wild Duck, Pinot Bianco-but the head notes fill in the details, and full-page color photographs show off many of Gray and Rogers's artful creations. For any collection where chefs' books are popular. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

Italian Two Easy


By Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers

Random House

Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers
All right reserved.

ISBN: 0307338355


Chapter One

•1 and one-half (1.5) English cucumbers (see note below)

•2 tbsp of mint leaves

•1 fresh hot red chile

•1 lemon

•1 cup mascarpone

•5 tbsp crème fraîche

•Extra virgin olive oil


Note: Look for cucumbers that are unwaxed. They should be firm and rounded to the ends. Avoid any with withered, shriveled tips or ones that bulge in the middle, because they are likely to be filled with large seeds.

Peel the cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Cut in half again and then into 2-inch lengths. Chop the mint. Wash the chile and finely slice on the diagonal. Squeeze the juice from the lemon.

Combine the mascarpone and crème fraîche; season well.

Combine the cucumber and mint with the lemon juice and three times its volume of olive oil. Season.

Serve with the mascarpone and the chile sprinkled over.
