New Regional Italian Cuisine Cookbook

( 1 )

Overview

It's both a beautifully illustrated, recipe-filled cookbook and an armchair guide to Italy's several distinct culinary regions, from the Alpine Piedmont area in the north to the southern island of Sicily. A separate chapter for each of eight regions opens with a magnificent landscape photo on a two-page spread, followed by several photo-filled pages describing the region's people, their way of life, and locally-produced foods and wines.

Overview

It's both a beautifully illustrated, recipe-filled cookbook and an armchair guide to Italy's several distinct culinary regions, from the Alpine Piedmont area in the north to the southern island of Sicily. A separate chapter for each of eight regions opens with a magnificent landscape photo on a two-page spread, followed by several photo-filled pages describing the region's people, their way of life, and locally-produced foods and wines. The rest of each chapter is devoted to the region's recipes—two dozen or more recipes per region—which are divided according to the Italian custom: Antipasti, Primi Piatti (first course), Secondi Piatti (second course), Contorni (vegetables, including salads), and Dolci (desserts). Complemented with photos for each prepared dish, recipes include a delightful pasta alle melanzane (pasta with eggplant) from the Abruzzi; agnello ai carciofi (lamb cooked with artichokes) from Tuscany; risotto alla pilota (a risotto with sausage) from Lombardy; and bab' all' amaretto, a delectable example of dolci from Sicily, to cite just a few of this book's 220 dishes. The authors present wonderful ways to prepare and serve meats, fish, pasta, sauces, fruits, vegetables, soups, salads, and desserts, along with suggestions for regional wines that go perfectly with each delightful Italian meal.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This beautifully illustrated compendium offers readers a culinary tour of Italy from the Alpine region down to Sicily. Each region-specific chapter offers an overview of local culinary delicacies, along with wines and a few highlighted ingredients, such as capers or bottarga. The authors point out the infinite specificities within each locale, such as the Vialone rice of Po, the unsalted bread of Tuscany or the emphasis on legumes in Apulia. The 220 recipes range from rustic, hearty fare like a simple chickpea and shrimp soup to artful, hand-folded tortelloni with potato and speck filling or a delicate peach gelatin with Moscato sauce. Recipes assume some level of familiarity, such as what it is to render fat, but they are straightforward and reliable, sometimes including illustrations for each step. (May)

Library Journal

Originally published in Germany, this lavishly illustrated book offers a culinary tour of eight regions of Italy, from Liguria to Tuscany to Sicily. Each section opens with a brief guide to the region, its cuisine, and its wines, followed by recipes for both traditional and contemporary specialties. All of the recipes are shown in color photographs, and there are also illustrated essays on such topics as "New Flavors with Wild Herbs." A good companion to Michele Scicolone's Savoring Italy(o.p.), this is recommended for most collections.
