Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Farro in pork broth with citrus and herbs (Farro in brodo di maiale)

    • twoyolks on February 02, 2016

      I didn't make a pork broth based on a recipe but used some pork stock that I already had. I also used some leftover pork rib meat instead of the pork used to make the stock. The citrus compliments the pork and the farro well. I did need to use the citrus juice from the orange and lemon to brighten the farro. The ribs that I used had some chile pepper on it so it added a bit of heat to the dish which was very nice. In the future, I think I'd consider adding some spinach or Swiss chard.

  • Savory farro tart (Torta di farro)

    • twoyolks on March 24, 2016

      This is rather simple but still quite good. The nuttiness of the farro compliments the richness of the cheese and eggs very well. The herbs also added a nice note (I substituted oregano for marjoram). It also reheats well.

Italian Slow and Savory celebrates the pleasure of taking time when it comes to friends, family, and good food. In this inspiring cookbook, acclaimed author Joyce Goldstein presents more than 120 recipes for slow-cooked soups, stews, pasta sauces, braises, roasts, and casseroles, with rich, full flavors that are unmatched by faster cooking methods. There is nothing better than slow in the kitchen when these savory favorites are bubbling on the stove or in the oven. Taking time to cook, while leaving cooks time, these dishes are amazingly easy to prepare -- braised pork ribs and sausages smothered in tomatoes and red wine, fennel-scented beef sauce served over polenta, hearty white bean soup with mussels, lamb stew flavored with citrus-scented olives. In a world where even fast food seems to be getting faster, here is a mouthwatering homage to putting on the brakes and dining the Italian way.
