Cookbook giveaway - Preserving Italy

Preserving Italy by Domenica MarchettiFood writer and cookbook author Domenica Marchetti feels that the notion of preserving shouldn't be limited to American jams and jellies. In her latest cookbook, Preserving Italy, she turns our gaze to the ever-alluring flavors and ingredients of Italy. There, abundant produce and other Mediterranean ingredients lend themselves particularly well to canning, bottling, and other preserving methods. In addition to recipes for and using both sweet and savory preserves, the book also allows us to learn from Domenica's in-person travels across the regions of Italy. You can learn more about Preserving Italy in our author Q&A with Domenica.

We're delighted to offer three copies of the cookbook to EYB Members in the US and Canada only. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

Which Italian preserve, condiment, or cured meat product are you most interested in learning how to make?

    Mostarda. Also, my mother (her family was from Piacenza, from northern Italy) used to talk about having wild cherries in grappa. The closest we could find commercially is Cherry Heering, a Danish liqueur. But there was a name for in it in Piacentine dialect (southeast of Milan).
