Synopsis: Tuscan food tastes like itself. Ingredients are left to shine. . . . So, if on your visit, I hand you an apron, your work will be easy. Well start with primoingredients, a little flurry of activity, perhaps a glass of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and soon well be carrying platters out the door. Well have as much fun setting the table as we have in the kitchen. Four double doors along the front of the house open to the outside-so handy for serving at a long table under the stars (or for cooling a scorched pan on the stone wall). Italian Philosophy 101: la casa aperta,the open house. -from the Introduction In all of Frances Mayess bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating in Tuscany are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: dishes prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients. A toast to the experiences theyve had over two decades at Bramasole, their home in Cortona, Italy, this cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries, and porci∋ dinner parties stretching into the wee hours, and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes. Lose yourself in the transporting photography of the food, the people, and the place, as Francess lyrical introductions and headnotes put you by her side in the kitchen and raising a glass at the table. From Antipasti (starters) to Dolci (desserts), this cookbook is organized like a traditional Italian dinner. The more than 150 tempting recipes include: Fried Zucchini Flowers Red Peppers Melted with Balsamic Vinegar Potato Ravioli with Zucchini, Speck, and Pecorino Risotto Primavera Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Sausage Cannellini Bean Soup with Pancetta Little Veal Meatballs with Artichokes and Cherry Tomatoes Chicken Under a Brick Short Ribs, Tuscan-Style Domenicas Rosemary Potatoes Folded Fruit Tart with Mascarpone Strawberry Semifreddo Steamed Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Sauce Frances and Ed also share their tips on stocking your pantry, pairing wines with dishes, and choosing the best olive oil. Learn their time-tested methods for hand rolling pasta and techniques for coaxing the best out of seasonal ingredients with little effort. Throw on another handful of pasta, pull up a chair, and languish in the rustic Italian way of life.
