Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roast porcini caps and stems

    • Sally on July 11, 2010

      good. can use other mushrooms to make this. lemon adds nice brightness.

  • Cavolo nero, fennel seed

    • Sally on July 11, 2010

      liked the combination of fennel seeds and chiles with the cavolo nero

  • Green bean, mustard salad

    • Sally on July 11, 2010

      nice for the summer, good but not craveworthy- must like mustard to enjoy.

  • Potato, green bean, tomato salad

    • westminstr on June 30, 2016

      I wanted to use up some potatoes, green beans and tomatoes, and voila. I wouldn't rush to make this again (it was a little plain for that) but I did really enjoy it all the same.

    • Gio on July 01, 2016

      Pg. 21. We thought the salad was just pleasant. Yukon gold potatoes and haricot vertes were steamed rather than boiled, potatoes quartered and beans left whole. Grape tomatoes instead of plum. Although the veggies were seasoned as directed I felt the finished salad could definitely use some tweaking, a little more acetic perhaps. Great concept, rather subtle finish as it stands.

  • Zucchini trifolati, tomato

    • westminstr on August 02, 2016

      Easy and delicious, super summery.

  • Savoy cabbage, capers, parsley salad

    • westminstr on December 18, 2013

      Great salad. The sweetness of the cabbage really plays well against the briny, salty capers and sharp parsley. I don't think I had savoy cabbage, but it worked well anyway.

  • Pappardelle, tomato, pancetta

    • Gio on January 05, 2016

      My favorite pasta cut combined with my favorite tomato sauce = heaven. I'm just surprised I haven't commented sooner. The first time we made it was 10.11.11 and have cooked it from time to time since. A ton of flavor, salty, spicy, buttery deliciousness all with no garlic! We make 1/2 lb and more or less adjust the other ingredients accordingly. Our only tweaks are using clarified butter every now and then, or half butter & half olive oil; and cooking the sauce 5 minutes longer at each step than the recipe instructs. Highly recommend.

  • Chocolate almond cake

    • Botanybird on November 03, 2015

      Very rich and delicious!
