The Italian Home Cook
By Silvia Colloca
2023 • Plum Publishing
Imported - Includes metric measures.
The Italian Home Cook is your essential guide to shopping, cooking and eating like an Italian, and will help you bring a little slice of Italy into your own home.
Italians are taught from a young age to cherish the ingredients they cook with, whether home-grown or store bought. They have observed their nonnas caring for these ingredients with passion and knowledge and turning them into meals they will never stop craving or recreating.
Silvia Colloca shares 100 recipes using the most humble of ingredients: end-of-summer tomatoes, salty anchovies, vibrant greens, oozy burrata and many more.
These are the dishes made lovingly in homes around Italy every day, and they are often brought to life with only a handful of ingredients and the simplest equipment. Try silky handmade noodles, savory pies filled with fresh ricotta and parmigiano, crispy fried seafood, or slow-cooked ossobuco over saffron risotto.
