Description - Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy by Domenica Marchetti

Italian cooks are masters of the art of preparing simmering soups and stews that showcase seasonal ingredients at their very best. Domenica Marchetti brings their secrets into your kitchen with "The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy", a collection of more than 60 exceptional, authentic recipes that mirror and celebrate each season in the Italian tradition. On a rainy day in fall, nothing takes the chill off like a bowl of Crema di Ceci con Maltagliati, a hearty, rustic soup of pureed chickpeas and pasta drizzled with fresh olive oil. In winter, when the days are cold and short and the months seem long, La Genovese di Signora Venditti, a rich ragu of slowcooked beef and sweet onions, will surely lift your spirits. Then, get ready to welcome spring to the table with Vellutata di Asparagi con Orzo Perlato, a delicately flavored, creamy soup of tender asparagus, sweet fennel, and pearled barley. And when summer comes, treat your guests at a casual dinner party to Zuppa di Cozze e Vongole Piccante, a spicy stew of mussels, clams, and ripe garden tomatoes. Domenica presents practical information on equipment, seasonal and pantry ingredients, and techniques for braising, simmering, and stewing the authentic Italian way. Plus her recipes for stocks, tomato sauces, and other soup and stew basics all serve to give you a head start in the kitchen. With a delicious mix of vanishing classics, regional specialties, treasured family recipes, and contemporary creations, "The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy" is a book to be savored throughout the year.
