Rustic Italian: Simple, authentic recipes for everyday cooking - Domenica Marchetti

Hardback.   Very good condition.   2011

This book offers over 100 recipes that are inspired by classic Italian favorites, but are lighter, fresher, simpler, and perfect for today's busy home cook. This engaging, accessible everyday Italian cookbook features 100 simple recipes highlighting fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The recipes are divided into six chapters, which are organized by course.  Author Domenica Marchetti's lively voice shines through in the evocative text, which grounds us in place and season.  The food is rustic - loose and not perfectly composed - and the recipes use familiar ingredients but are also modern, offering a subtle element of surprise through interesting flavor pairings and the use of a wide range of produce and Italian pantry stapes.

There is a festive vibe to the recipes and text - this is food to share in a casual setting with family and friends.  In these pages, author Domenica Marchetti shares her rich Italian heritage with an abundant array of simply prepared foods that embrace the seasons and celebrate traditional ingredients and techniques.
