Italian Cookbook: Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy: A Feast of 175 Regional Recipes
(Pasta Recipes Made Easy)
Restaurateur and PBS star Lidia Bastianich is quite Julia Childs-esque in her full, unhurried approach to cooking up traditional dishes. And all the better for it! Here she teams up with her daughter Tanya to bring you family meals cooked in a familial way.
In this modern classic cookbook you'll learn a wonderful assortment of real Italian dishes from across the food-loving land of the boot. As such, one day you might find yourself cooking up a layered bread and cheese casserole (pasticciata
), the next a Sardinian roast lobster and after that maybe white bean polenta from the North Western Valle d'Aosta area.
Not only that, but in addition to learning how to cook these dishes you'll also find out why they come from their particular regions, their history and some additional local context, so that you truly understood the origins and Italian heritage of the food you make and enjoy.
If you like your Italian cooking knowledge a bit more authentic than American-style 'chicken parmesan' and the like, this could well be the book for you.
