Publishers Text

Marcella Hazan is acclaimed, certainly, for her several trailblazing cookbooks. But, first and foremost, she is a teacher. From her first cooking classes, in the 1960s, held in her small New York City apartment kitchen, to the avidly sought-after Master Classes she led in her beautiful Venice home, Marcella has been the authoritative guide to Italian cooking. Now, in a much-anticipated follow-up to Marcella Cucina, she brings her warm, conversational, and illuminating teachings into home kitchens everywhere.

Part of what has made Marcella such a beloved teacher and author is her unique ability to present each recipe as a narrative, with subplots, characters, and rich history. This latest collection of 120 tantalizing recipes demonstrates just how many delicious new stories she still has to tell.

Alongside her classic recipes are essays offering in-depth information on the techniques that make authentic Italian food so delicious. In a volume whose novel format pulls the reader into class with Marcella, she provides recipes and instructions for everything from fruit to seafood, meats and grains, and a valuable Master Class chapter complete with tips and procedures for handling ingredients to get the most flavor out of them. Pure and simple, it is as close as you can get to have Marcella alongside you in your kitchen.
