Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking
By Marcella Hazan, Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, Victor Hazan, Karin Kretschmann
2022 • Knopf Publishing Group
A handsome new edition of one of the most beloved cookbooks of all time, by “the Queen of Italian Cooking” (Chicago Tribune), featuring new forewords by Lidia Bastianich and Victor Hazan
Marcella Hazan introduced Americans to a whole new world of Italian food. In this, her magnum opus, she gives us a manual for cooks of every level of expertise—from beginners to accomplished professionals. From Pasta e Fagioli to the only tomato sauce you’ll ever need (the secret ingredient: butter), from Risotto with Saffron to Ricotta Fritters—and every imaginable recipe in between—this is the go-to Italian cookbook for students, newlyweds, and master chefs, alike. Beautifully illustrated with line drawings throughout, Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking brings together nearly five hundred of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire in one indispensable volume. As the generations of readers who have turned to it over the years know (and as their spattered and worn copies can attest), there is no more passionate and inspiring guide to the cuisine of Italy.
