Reviews by Domenica Marchetti

  • The Victory Garden Cookbook by Marian Morash

    There is not a whiff of celebrity about it. What it has is Morash’s down-to-earth style and practical, yet joyful approach to cooking. She is just a knowledgeable teacher sharing her passion.

    • Sweet potato-chocolate nut cake

      The sweet potato's natural orange color looks beautiful swirled together with chocolate. The mashed sweet potatoes add moisture to the batter, resulting in a rich, tender crumb.

Domenica Marchetti is a food writer, recipe developer, and cooking teacher who specializes in seasonal Italian home cooking. She learned to cook from her Italian-born mother, who put her to work crafting capelletti, ravioli, and other Italian culinary delights as soon as she could see over the kitchen counter. A former newspaper reporter with a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, Ms. Marchetti covered subjects ranging from health and fitness to philanthropy before turning to her favorite subject, food. Growing up, she spent summers in Italy with her family, and she continues to travel there frequently for culinary inspiration. Her food articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Cooking Light, Fine Cooking, Health, and Virginia Living, among other publications. Ms. Marchetti has taught at A Southern Season, in Chapel Hill, N.C.; Central Market, in Texas; COPIA, in Napa; and Williams-Sonoma. She lives with her family in Alexandria, Virginia. She is the author of The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy (Chronicle Books, 2006) and Big Night In: More than 100 Wonderful Recipes for Feeding Family and Friends Italian Style (Chronicle Books, 2008).
