Visual Eatsby Enzo Fargione
Try his recipe for raw onion salad, crispy and delicious; I love the texture of the onion petals layered with caviar. A purée of anise over a perfectly cooked fish, a rabbit in artichoke prosciutto
I love Enzo's unique vision of modern Italian cooking. He is a creative chef and restaurateur, and shares his passions and challenges for both in this book.
Try his recipe for raw onion salad, crispy and delicious; I love the texture of the onion petals layered with caviar. A purée of anise over a perfectly cooked fish, a rabbit in artichoke prosciutto crepinette, or his pasta with Parmesan parsley foam; all inspire me to dream in culinary Italian.

I had the pleasure of meeting Enzo when he was only 17 and at the beginning of his culinary career. I have always admired his talents, his artistic work and enjoyed his friendship. "Visual Eats" tells decades of realistic restaurant stories while its recipes help to spread a better understanding of great Italian cooking across America.
Bravo, Enzo. I am proud of you!

I enjoyed reading "Visual Eats." It is a wonderful cookbook and a spot on approach in telling realistic and funny tales of the restaurant industry. Love Enzo's creativity and his precise details in executing all the featured dishes. His vision of modern Italian cooking breaks away from traditionalism in a fun and playful way while preserving the essence of quality and professionalism. "Visual Eats" is a perfect marriage of words and recipes.

I love "Visual Eats" and I love how my friend Enzo is so passionate about Italian cooking. His work and professional commitment has helped elevate food quality in Washington D.C. for years. This book can inspire and will motivate many people to cook his amazing modern Italian cuisine at home. Enzo is a talented chef and one of the hardest working people I know and I am very proud of him.

Reading "Visual Eats" made me re-live the good old days with a smile. Enzo and I shared memorable days in kitchens across America cooking for charity functions, shared great times in the gym working out and we always shared the same passion for food and wine with infinite joy and friendship. I love the way he tells the stories and the recipes he features in this book: a reflection of his commitment to culinary greatness with mastery and professionalism that leads to his personal approach to modern Italian cooking.
