    Spaghetti with Dungeness Crab sounds delicious.

  • traculart  on  1/16/2017 at 1:12 PM

    So hard to choose, would be happy to make most recipes. One that jumped out at me was Red wine risotto with carrot purée! Sounds amazing! We have eaten at Del Posto, lunch during NYC Restaurant week and were over the moon! Will have to add this book to my collection one way or another!

  • Teruska  on  1/16/2017 at 4:27 PM

    There are many I would like to make! I think I would start with some of the fish dishes. Probably the Charred Octopus with Ceci, Celery Hearts and 25-year Balsamic Vinaigrette. YUM!

  • sgump  on  1/19/2017 at 9:01 PM

    "Mini lobster and corn crostatas" (p. 11) sound surprisingly straightforward and tasty. (Of course, I could be wrong about the "straightforward" part!)

  • t.t  on  1/20/2017 at 4:53 PM

    I'd love to make the Del Posto 'nduja sausage.

    There is so much here that looks delicious -- I'm intrigued that there is a recipe for fried breadcrumbs!

  • AnnaZed  on  1/23/2017 at 9:09 PM

  • jim.windle  on  1/28/2017 at 1:37 PM

    Slow cooked lamb alla Romana because I've never cooked baby lamb and whole animal dishes are so interesting. Also it sounds like the perfect accompaniment to the puntarelle salad that's recommended with it.

  • Sfgordon  on  1/30/2017 at 11:52 AM

    Roots and fruits sounds pretty wonderful, as does the seared scallops with sunchoke puree. I always love sunchokes when I've had them at restaurants but I've never tried cooking with them myself.

  • soffner  on  1/31/2017 at 10:00 PM

    There's a few things that sound great: Insalata primavera della terra with citron vinaigrette, Italian ricotta, and rosemary crumbs, sounds great, but I have no idea what "Egg yolk gnudi with asparagus, bird's nest style is and I NEED to find out.

  • debbyg  on  1/31/2017 at 10:37 PM

  • shazwald  on  2/6/2017 at 4:10 PM

    Wow, all of the recipes look amazing. But, red wine risotto with carrot purée does sound like something I'd have to try first.

  • niniacedo  on  2/7/2017 at 2:18 PM

    I love del Posto!! I am looking forward to cooking Fried calamari with spicy caper butter sauce
