Italian food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Tomatoes warm from the sun, creamy risotto, fresh mussels, delicious olive oils and herbs -- all these foods transport us to sun-drenched hillsides of Tuscany or the breezy coast of Naples. MasterClass in Italian Cooking brings these classic flavors home. Maxine Clark has compiled 120 recipes from 21 of the most celebrated Italian chefs that creates a sinfonia di gusti. Each chapter includes a "MasterClass" to guide the cook through a recipe step-by-step, from choosing the perfect ingredients to presentation of the finished dish. Beautifully illustrated, MasterClass in Italian Cooking is a satisfying introduction to the fundamentals of the Italian kitchen.
