Editorial Reviews

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

Library Journal
10/15/2013
Food writer Marchetti, a former newspaper reporter, has written five books on Italian cooking. Her newest offering contains mostly, but not all, vegetarian recipes organized by course, ranging from pizzas and pastas to condiments and desserts. Visually, it resembles her previous work, The Glorious Pasta of Italy, employing the same chic design and gorgeous full-page color photographs. A "Gallery of Italian Vegetables" introduces prominently featured ingredients (e.g., artichokes, chickpeas, mushrooms, potatoes), explaining when they are in season and how to clean and prepare them. VERDICT Broader in scope than the title suggests, Marchetti's latest work will delight readers looking for a variety of elegant, unfussy, and substantial vegetable dishes.

    This is an incredible cookbook! A friend was over for a visit wh

    This is an incredible cookbook! A friend was over for a visit when this book came in and we oohed and aahed and salivated over the entire thing!! My "to make" list is a mile long with "Capricci with Slow-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Cream" at the top of the list. My husband saw the picture and all of us immediately said, "Ooooh! I want to try that!!". The only reason I haven't made it yet is that I haven't found the capricci pasta yet. I know I can make it with something else, but I'd really like to make it exactly as it's listed first. The "Slow-Roasted Tomatoes" are incredible as are the "Baked Delicata Squash with Cream and Parmigiano". Some of these dishes look incredible, but I'm waiting on the autumn veggies to come into season before I dip into those recipes.

    The "Gallery of Vegetables" in this book is wonderful. Each vegetable is listed with "Season", "To Clean" and "To Prepare" with all the basic information needed. That alone is great, especially for the vegetables I don't prepare often. Also included is a short section on different herbs, basic ingredients and basic equipment. This is especially helpful for more beginner cooks.

    This is a wonderful cookbook that is definitely going on my "favorites" shelf to be used for a long, long time.

    I received a copy of this book from Chronicle Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
