    Spaghetti with Dungeness Crab sounds delicious.

  • traculart  on  January 16, 2017

    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!

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

    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  January 30, 2017

    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  January 31, 2017

    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  January 31, 2017

  • willowglen  on  February 18, 2017
