From the Publisher"Domenica Marchetti has created a work of art, just as so many Italian masters who have come before her have done. Fresh vegetables, prepared so beautifully at the peak of ripeness, results in a book you won't want to live without. The really special part is that Marchetti creates a perfect marriage between classic Italian vegetable dishes and the seasonal abundance that is available at your local farmers market. This is truly an inspirational cookbook and one that I will enthusiastically return to for years to come." -- Tracey Ryder, Co-founder, Edible Communities
"The more you explore the world of vegetable cookery -- whether in China, India, Europe, or the South -- the more you realize that plants are every bit as delicious as meat. Period. Marchetti's Eggplant 'Meatballs' in Tomato Sauce is simply dazzling as proof of concept -- rich, succulent, vibrant, satisfying." -- Cooking Light
"The Glorious Vegetables of Italy--glorious indeed! Domenica Marchetti reveals the last, great secret of the Italian kitchen: the abundance and staggering variety of vegetable dishes that Italians enjoy on a daily basis. What's secret? The recipes are not from limited restaurant menus, but from la cucina, the home kitchen. Tha''s where the chickpea, eggplant, fennel and radicchio reign. Domenica, at home in the tradition, reveals all: lore, history, tips, and, best of all, a thousand thrilling tastes from the garden that is Italy."
--Frances Mayes, author of seven books on Italy, including Under the Tuscan Sun
