    Italy has a well-established and deserved reputation for producing high-quality food and tasty cuisine. Best known for pizza and pasta, Italian food also includes many excellent meat and seafood dishes, as well as excellent cheeses, and fabulous desserts.

    It has often been noted that Italy is a country of great regional variations - and that is certainly true, indeed the country was only unified in 1861 - and this fact is reflected in the diversity of Italy's regional cuisine. It should also be noted that Italy has been invaded many times over the centuries, as well as trading with many other countries, and this too is reflected in the national cuisine.

    Pasta

    Some of the regional variations that you may encounter in Italian food include:
    • Northern Italy's native products include balsamic vinegar, bolognese sauce (ragu), lasagna, mortadella (a heat-cured pork sausage, served as a cold cut) parmigiano (parmesan cheese) polenta (a dish made from boiled cornmeal), prosciutto (dry cured ham) and tortellini (stuffed pasta). Rice is grown in both Lombardy and Piedmont (although different types in these two regions), which is used to make risotto.

    • Tuscan cuisine often features meat, white beans and unsalted bread.

    • Mozzarella and pizza, not to mention sfogliatelle (Italian filled pastries) originate from Naples.

      Authentic Neapolitan pizza served in Naples

    • Roman cuisine often uses pecorino (cheese made from sheep's milk) and offal. Rome is also known for its ultra-thin pizzas.

    • Calabria (the region corresponding to the "toe" of Italy) is known for its spicy variety of salami.

    • Sardinia is well-known for its lamb and pecorino (cheese made from sheep's milk).

    • Sicilian cuisine is noted for its Arab influences in its cooking (with the use of lemon and pistachio), as well as for its seafood (including tuna and swordfish). Sicily is also the home of gelato (ice cream) and granita (a delicious semi-frozen dessert made using sugar, water and flavorings).
    Some popular Italian recipes and dishes include:
    • Braciola - Thin slices of beef pan-fried with a little olive oil. It is often eaten as an appetizer with green salad or potatoes.

    • Bruschetta - Grilled bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil, pepper and salt. Additional toppings such as tomato, red pepper, vegetables beans, cheese or cured meat are also sometimes added.

      Bruschetta

    • Gnocchi - Dumplings or noodles made from potato, wheat flour, or semolina.

    • Minestrone - A thick soup made from stock with vegetables such as beans, carrots, celery, onions, and tomatoes. Pasta or rice may sometimes be added, and the dish is not necessarily vegetarian: meat or meat stock is often used when making it.

    • Panna cotta - A dessert made by simmering milk, cream, and sugar, then mixing with gelatin. It is then allowed to cool and set. Panna cotta is often eaten with berries, chocolate sauce, or fruit coulis.

    • Pasta - There are many different types of pasta including farfalle and rotelle (complicated decorative shapes), fettuccine and linguine (both ribbon-shipped), lasagna (large sheets), manicotti, ravioli and tortellini (hollow shapes which are stuffed with fillings), penne (short tubes), and spaghetti and vermicelli (string like). Each type of pasta is most suitable for a particular type of sauce (Alfredo sauce, Tomato sauce, etc.), and thus a very wide range of different dishes can be prepared using each of these forms of pasta.

      Fettuccine alfredo with shrimp

    • Pizza - As already discussed, there are many different variations, including:
      • Lazio - A thick-base pizza, particularly associated with Rome, although available in other parts of the country too. There are quite a few different toppings that may be used, and this type of pizza is often made in long rectangular pans ("pizza al taglio" or "pizza rustica").
      • Neapolitan (Italian: pizza napoletana) - A pizza with a thin base made from Italian white flour. Marina, margherita, and margherita extra are the three official versions of the recipe.
      • Ripieno and calzone - A half-moon shaped pizza filled mozzarella, ricotta and salami. It may be baked or fried.
      • Sicilian (Italian: Sfincione) - A pizza with ingredients incorporated in the dough rather than used as toppings. Pecorino cheese is used instead of mozzarella, and these pizzas also usually include anchovies.

    • Polenta - A kind of porridge made from boiled cornmeal. It is a staple food in Northern Italy.

    • Risotto - A traditional Italian dish prepared from rice. The rice is first cooked in butter or olive oil, then white wine is added, and after this evaporates, hot stock is slowly added, stirring continuously. Diced butter or cheese is then mixed in, achieving a rich creamy texture. The basic recipe can be varied by using different kinds of wine or cheese, and by adding vegetables, meat, fish or seafood (cheese is usually omitted from the recipe if fish or seafood is used).

    • Tiramisu - A dessert made from lady fingers (small sponge cakes known in Italian as "savoiardi") dipped in expresso, and sometimes brandy or sugar. Mascarpone cream, a custard made from egg yolks (zabaglione), Marsala wine, and sugar are then added, and cocoa powder sprinkled on top.

    The European tradition of making bittersweet liqueurs--called amari in Italian--has been around for centuries. But it is only recently that these herbaceous digestifs have moved from the dusty back bar to center stage in the United States, and become a key ingredient on cocktail lists in the country’s best bars and restaurants. Lucky for us, today there is a dizzying range of amaro available—from familiar favorites like Averna and Fernet-Branca, to the growing category of regional, American-made amaro.
     
    Amaro is the first book to demystify this ever-expanding, bittersweet world, and a must-have for any home cocktail enthusiast or industry professional. Starting with a rip-roaring tour of bars, cafés, and distilleries in Italy, amaro’s spiritual home, Brad Thomas Parsons—author of the James Beard and IACP Award–winner Bitters—will open your eyes to the rich history and vibrant culture of amaro today. With more than 100 recipes for amaro-centric cocktails, DIY amaro, and even amaro-spiked desserts, you’ll be living (and drinking) la dolce vita.

    Along the way, Fabio shares stories from his early life in Florence where he apprenticed at age five to his wheel-chair-bound and wooden-spoon-wielding great-grandmother to his American life cooking dinner for his wife and infant son in Chicago. Gorgeously illustrated throughout, and filled with his through-­the-roof energy and charisma, Fabio’s 30 Minute Italian is guaranteed to make you enjoy your time in the kitchen―and the results!

Essentials of Italian Cooking is a culinary bible for anyone looking to master the art of Italian cooking, bringing together Marcella Hazan’s most beloved books, The Classic Italian Cook Book and More Classic Italian Cooking, in a single volume, updated and expanded with new entries and 50 new recipes. Designed as a basic manual for cooks of all levels of expertise—from beginners to accomplished professionals—it offers both an accessible and comprehensive guide to techniques and ingredients and a collection of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire. As home cooks who have used Marcella’s classic books for years (and whose copies are now splattered and worn) know, there is no one more gifted at teaching us just what we need to know about the taste and texture of a dish and how to achieve it, and there is no one more passionate and inspiring about authentic Italian food.

    Product Description:
    Fifty years ago, a group of Italian scholars gathered to discuss a problem: how to preserve traditional Italian cooking. They formed the Italian Academy of Cuisine to document classic recipes from every region. The academy’s more than seven thousand associates spread out to villages everywhere, interviewing grandmothers and farmers at their stoves, transcribing their recipes—many of which had never been documented before. This is the culmination of that research, an astounding feat—2,000 recipes that represent the patrimony of Italian country cooking. Each recipe is labeled with its region of origin, and it’s not just the ingredients but also the techniques that change with the geography. Sprinkled throughout are historical recipes that provide fascinating views into the folk culture of the past. There are no fancy flourishes here, and no shortcuts; this is true salt-of-the-earth cooking. The book is an excellent everyday source for easily achievable recipes, with such simple dishes as White Bean and Escarole Soup, Polenta with Tomato Sauce, and Chicken with Lemon and Capers. For ease of use there are four different indexes. La Cucina is an essential reference for every cook’s library.

    Product Description:
    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

    Having won or been nominated for just about every known prestigious culinary award, Michael White is hailed by food critics as the next great hero of Italian gastronomy. His reach extends around the globe with a clutch of acclaimed fine dining restaurants, including Marea, Ai Fiori, Osteria Morini, and pizzeria Nicoletta.
     
    Now, in Classico e Moderno, White brings his passion for authentic Italian cuisine to the home kitchen, with recipes—nearly 250—that cover both the traditional and contemporary dishes of the region. In the “Classico” portion, White shares such iconic dishes as Meatballs Braised in Tomato Sauce; Pasta and Bean Soup; Cavatelli with Lamb Ragù and Bell Peppers; and Roasted Pork Leg with Rosemary and Black Pepper. The “Moderno” chapters feature recipes that have put White’s restaurants on the map, including Chicken Liver Crostini with Marsala-Braised Onions; Fusili with Red Wine–Braised Octopus and Bone Marrow; and Veal Chops with Roasted Endive and Pancetta Cream Sauce.
     
    Both the Classico and Moderno sections offer ideas for your whole meal: first courses (Vitello Tonnato, Garganelli with Caviar Cream ), soups (Zuppa di Baccalá, White Bean Soup with Sautéed Shrimp), pastas (Tortellini alla Panna, Ricotta and Swiss Chard Tortelli), main courses (Pollo alla Diavola, Braised Lamb Shanks with Farrotto), and desserts (Crostata di Ricotta, Panna Cotta with Meyer Lemon–Basil Sorbet and Almond Milk Froth), as well as salads, pizzas, and basic formulas for pesto, stocks, and vinaigrettes. Including personal notes and anecdotes about White’s early sojourn in Italy and his flavorful career, Classico e Moderno will give you all the tools, tips, and tricks you need to cook tantalizing Italian dishes with the confidence of a seasoned chef.

    Praise for Michael White and Classico e Moderno
     
    “A masterpiece of culinary acumen and perfection in presentation . . . White once again sublimely deals with his cuisine of choice—Italian. In an attempt to bridge the gap between classic and modern, this chef extraordinaire offers the reader an experience in beauty and taste. . . . This book is a testament to both the importance/influence of Italian cuisine and to the rich and varied experiences its ingredients and tradition still have to offer.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
     
    “Exceedingly appealing . . . [Michael White] is one of the great chefs of modern Italian food in this country, and in Classico e Moderno he teaches us enough so that we can try to follow in his footsteps.”Vogue
     
    “Hugely ambitious . . . White is one of a number of rising chefs here who aren’t Italian but have felt the freedom to refresh the concept of Italian food.”—Associated Press
     
    “The future of Italian gastronomy, thanks to the spectacular inventiveness he brings to modernizing the world’s most popular cuisine.”Gotham

    “I’ve watched and tasted as Michael White has matured into his current position as one of the preeminent stewards and pioneers of Italian culinary tradition in America. Even his signature modern dishes are as relatable as the classics—and are perhaps even destined to be deemed classics in their own right some day.”—Thomas Keller, from the Foreword

    “Michael White has, in very short order, grabbed the Italian food crown for New York City.”—Anthony Bourdain

    Product Description:
    In her beautifully illustrated new cookbook, Lidia Bastianich lays out a comprehensive curriculum of wise cooking tips--from the cutting board to the kitchen table. Channeling the instructive elements from her TV show, she teaches us that a good dose of common sense is the key ingredient to a stellar meal. As storyteller and chef, she draws on anecdotes to educate and illustrate. Recalling lessons learned from her mother, Erminia, and her grandmother Nonna Rosa, Lidia pays homage to the kitchen sages who inspired her.
    Whether it's Citrus Roasted Veal, or Rustic Ricotta Tart, each recipe is a tangible feast. We learn to look at ingredients as both geographic and cultural indicators. In Campania, the region where mozzarella is king, we discover it best eaten three hours after preparation. In Genova we are taught that while focaccia had its basil origins in the Ligurain culinary tradition, the herbs and flavorings will change from region to region; as home chefs, we can experiment with rosemary or oregano or olives or onions! When it's time for dessert, Lidia draws on the scared customs of nuns in Italian monasteries and convents and reveals the secret to rice pudding with a blessing.
    Lidia's Commonsense Guide to Italian Cooking is a collection of 150 delectable recipes, told with commonsense cooking wisdom, that teaches us how create simple, seasonal Italian dishes with grace, confidence and love.
