Chef and food stylist Mattia Risaliti grew up in Tuscany with a large family that gathered often at their enormous table, eating the region’s amazing food and telling stories of their friends and neighbors. In Si Mangia (Let’s Eat!), Mattia opens his family’s recipe book and shares his culinary heritage with cooks at every level of expertise.
Familiar dishes such as eggplant parmigiana and polenta are included here, as well Tuscan classics—stuffed artichokes, fried zucchini blossoms, rice in broth, ricotta dumplings, and pork roast. But this book is also highly personal, with recipes passed down from generations, and colored by Risaliti’s reflections on the Tuscan culture and landscape.
Tantalizing color photography showcases not just the recipes and techniques but also the people and places that Risaliti holds dear. The result is a luscious and transporting book that will inspire your own family gatherings with the spirit of “Si Mangia!”.
