Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Whole roasted fennel with salsa verde and gremolata bread crumbs

    • ncollyer on February 28, 2021

      Excellent dish. Great combination of flavours and textures. The caramelized fennel is set off beautifully by the bread crumbs and salsa verde, both of which are special in their own right.

  • Dario's baked potatoes with whipped lardo

    • adelina on February 23, 2021

      This was a show stopper. I used butter instead of Laredo but it was beautiful and flavorful. I doubled the recipe and used a bigger skillet with five pounds of potatoes.

  • Braised brisket with salsa verde and horseradish crème fraîche

    • adelina on February 23, 2021

      Really enjoyed the flavors of the brisket. In know Nancy calls out that the horseradish sauce make the dish but it was great as is. I did braise in the oven longer because I do enjoy the slow cooking process and a result of meet that falls off the bone.

  • Braised greens

    • csp on February 09, 2024

      Very good but I’ll reduce the salt next time. The saltiness concentrates as the greens cook down. Made it with some fresh Italian sausages..

    • Apepin on April 24, 2021

      Great recipe! The greens, garlic, and oil meld together beautifully.

  • Dario's Tuscan white beans

    • SpatulaCity on December 06, 2023

      Tasted like… beans! Missed some depth - maybe a smoked meat in there? But overall they were fine.

  • Pork tenderloin, segreto style, with lemon-anchovy salsa rustica

    • SpatulaCity on November 30, 2023

      Tasty combo between the rub and lemon anchovy salsa.

  • Little gems with herb bread crumbs, bacon vinaigrette, and grated egg

    • SpatulaCity on November 30, 2023

      The vinaigrette amazingly doesn’t taste of salty, greasy bacon fat. It works! I’m not sure I cared for the sherry vinegar, though that may just be the brand I used. Enjoyed the salad, but not sure it’s one of our favorites

  • Watercress and avocado salad with pears and Gorgonzola vinaigrette

    • SpatulaCity on December 03, 2023

      We enjoyed this salad, and appreciated that it came together relatively quickly. Lovely textures and flavors all in balance with one another - the bites with a bit of avocado, pear and blue cheese altogether were delicious. Next time I’m going to try using pickled shallots in place of the cocktail onions. They just had a funkiness that I didn’t care for. I bet walnuts could be nice too.

  • Pollo alla diavola on toast

    • SpatulaCity on November 30, 2023

      Beyond delicious, top to bottom. Needed to add extra stock to the onions during cooking. Our bread was very rustic and at 1.5” was kind of difficult to work with, so maybe next time would slice it 1”. I crisped both sides of the bread in oil and it was such a great dinner!

  • Whole roasted sweet potatoes with orange-brown butter glaze and mascarpone

    • SpatulaCity on December 05, 2023

      Made with regular, large sweet potatoes. Divine! And easy! Would make for an excellent holiday dish.

  • Grains and seeds salad with escarole, avocado, bacon, egg, and horseradish dressing

    • bwhip on December 27, 2020

      Delicious and interesting. I wasn’t sure how much we’d like this with all of the emphasis on seeds and grains, but the end result was really good. Dressing was nicely zippy, and the balance of flavors and textures was very nice.

  • Pepper steak "Dal Rae"

    • bwhip on February 27, 2023

      Excellent, and quite simple to put together. I cut the recipe roughly in half, since there are just two of us. I bought some really beautiful (and expensive) Wagyu beef steaks, and since I didn’t want to take any chance of over-or-undercooking them, I decided to sous vide them, and then put a nice quick sear on them just before serving. Delicious. I served them with the https://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/recipes/2261464/butter-lettuce-and-herb-salad from the same cookbook.

  • Grilled pork-and-veal meatballs with fresh ricotta and braised greens

    • Apepin on April 24, 2021

      These were great, though the kids didn't enjoy them much. I used 6oz of store bough n'duja because that was the size of the package. I used less sage, oregano, and rosemary than was called for. It seemed like a lot. Next time I'll use all the herbs. The grilled flavor was unusual and the herbs balance it nicely. The greens were absolutely delicious.
