The closest thing to Italy,
This review is from: Made In Italy (Hardcover)The pictures, the recipes, the culture of Italy jump off every page.
A true delight in every way, with vegetarian recipes to satisfy any meat eater. Encourages you to use less expensive cuts of meats, use up whatever you have on hand, substitute any cheese and even use your death-bed vegetables. Most recipes are better the next day! However, while there are many simple recipes you'll find no shortcuts here - everything is prepared the way an Italian grandma would do it. She wastes nothing - and she spares no time, no expense and of course, no olive oil.
The first thing I cooked was the eggplant parmigiana, with such glorious results that I ordered his other book the next day. (yes it took three cups of olive oil, three pans and an entire evening... but it was worth every messy moment). Try the bollito and the salsa verde, which will prove that you're a fan of anchovies after all.
Best for those that cook with love... might even convert those that don't.
