Overview

For the past several years, people passionate about food have been making the trek to Woodstock, Vermont, to visit a unique Italian restaurant and bakery: Pane e Salute, which translates to “bread and health.” Combing Italy for both rare and traditional recipes, husband and wife Caleb Barber and Deirdre Heekin have brought the flavors and styles of its distinctive regions to their restaurant. Sharing that same food and spirit, this collection of their recipes is more than a cookbook—it is a love affair with a culture, with a way of life. In vignettes taken from their years in Italy, they offer glimpses of a young vibrant Italy: rolling out pizza dough in an ancient hill town at midnight while wild dogs bay in abandoned villages; fogged car windows of an Italian lovers’ lane amidst the olive groves near the Villa Ruccellai. The 80 recipes included are every bit as luscious as the memories they share throughout. In Italy, meals are planned in accordance with the seasons; the same is true of each mouthwatering recipe here, all of which are designed to take advantage of the freshest local ingredients. From Baby Peas with Prosciutto in spring to the summer celebration inherent in Roasted Eggplant with Fresh Ricotta, the recipes and anecdotes in Pane e Salute provide rich sustenance in the best tradition of travel and food writing.

Deirdre Heekin and Caleb Barber are the proprietors of Pane e Salute, which has received acclaim in Bon Appetit and the New York Times. Deirdre’s fiction has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has won the Calvino Prize in New Fiction. In preparation for his role as a chef, Caleb apprenticed with an artisanal baker and in a small trattoria inTuscany. They live in Woodstock, Vermont.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Husband and wife author team and proprietors of the Pane E Salute cafi in Woodstock, Vt., Heekin and Barber made a pilgrimage to Italy soon after they were married, returning with recipes and voluminous travelogues. They share both in this neat little cookbook, providing easy-to-follow recipes for the simple but lovely dishes that are Italian cuisine's hallmark, alongside essays about life in Lombardy or Tuscany. The recipes are arranged according to season: spring presents, for example, the effortless Asparagi alla Milanese (asparagus with fried eggs) and the savory Costolette d'Agnello con Caprino (lamb chops with fresh goat cheese), while fall offers La Trota all' Erbe Gresche (trout with fresh herbs) and Torta di Mela (apple cake). While this conceit has the charms of underlining cooking's connection to nature, it's slightly bothersome to have to thumb through the entire book to uncover the full catalog of desserts. But that's a minor complaint in what is, overall, a winning and well-written volume full of honest Italian cooking and memories. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    Magnificant!!!

    I recently dined with my husband and very dear friends at Pane E Salute Fourth of July weekend. What a wonderful and delightful eating experience. I recommend Pane E Salute to anyone who travels thru Woodstock Vermont, it is a must on a list of places to dine and visit. I wish Pane E Salute was there 30 years ago when my husband and I lived there while he was a law student. So glad they are there now! I wish Pane E Salute happy cooking for many years to come.

    A salute to good people, good eating, and good reading!

    Three years ago I had the good fortune of taking a job across the street from pane e salute. Over those three years I have shared breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with Deirdre, Caleb, and their wonderful staff. Imagine an almond praline cornetti (croissant) still warm from the oven on a cool Vermont morning. Inhale the scent of chicken roasting with rosemary and garlic. Enjoy an afternoon capuccino and a cookie. Have a dinner of pasta carbonnara while dining al fresco on a lovely Vermont summer evening. So, of course I bought their book, read it, too. I have enjoyed the narrative and the recipes - I can especially recommend the Salmone al Pepe Verde and the Penne with Asparagus. I look forward to many more fine meals with Deirdre and Caleb - both in their establishment and from my own labors. Even if you cannot visit us here in Woodstock, you can get a taste of the best Vermont and Tuscany have to offer from the pages of this fine book.
