Simple as a luscious ripe tomato rubbed over rustic bread, intensely flavored as a Sunday leg of lamb smothered in fresh herbs, joyous, unexpected, vibrant farm food is the heart and soul of Italian cooking, and the prize of Susan Herrmann Loomisís years-long quest. Working side-by-side in the kitchen, walking through fields at dawn, eating, drinking, and above all listening, she discovers the secret ingredient of Italian cooks accortezza, or simply ýknowingO and weaves it into every recipes of this sensuous, sun-filled book.

Synopsis:

They are Val d'Aosta cheese producers. Grandchildren of Sicilian sharecroppers returning to the soil. A restaurateur's family specializing in glorious peppers. They're Italian farmers, vintners, ranchers, market gardeners, olive growers. They're as passionate about cooking and eating food as they are about raising it, and they each have their own segreti--secrets--of cuisine and craft.

Now Susan Herrmann Loomis, the critically acclaimed author and farmhouse cooking authority whose previous Farmhouse Cookbook and French Farmhouse Cookbook have 238,000 copies in print, continues her series by going to the very source--the farmhouse kitchen and the cooks who practice there--to discover the heat and soul of Italian cooking. A collection of over 250 recipes that are gutsy, fresh, healthy, and easy-to-make, Italian Farmhouse Cookbook is an original, extraordinary contribution to America's love affair with Italian food. This is the real deal--earth Green Beans with Pancetta; Gorgonzola and Goat Cheese Crostini; Lemon and Pine Nut Tagliatelle; Sicilian Orange Salad; Farmhouse Herbed Lamb Chops; Francesca's Pepper Pizza; Ricotta Cheese Torte; and Corrado's Almond Cake. It's pure delizioso, spoken with a rustic accent, full of life and authenticity.

Table of Contents

AN INTRODUCTION TO ITALIAN FARMHOUSE COOKING......xii

APPETIZERS AND SNACKS

Tantalizing platters of salami, stuffed vegetables, and herb-redolent olives welcome you to a meal or fill the spaces in between.

A Very Happy Farmer or Is He a Baker? on Lido

The Maneras of Piedmont

The Vena Brothers of Gangi

An Agronomist, a Genius, and a Lucky Farmer

The Buffalo and Their Cheese

SALADS

From the simples mix of greens to the famous Tuscan bread salad (panzanella) and the citrus-infused salads of Sicily, Italian farmhouse insalate are as varied, and as interesting, as the regions of Italy itself.

The Real Balsamic Vinegar\

The Capers of Salina

SOUPS

Soups on the Italian farm table are hearty, satisfying paeans to the past. Steaming bowls rich with the freshest vegetables, aromatic herbs, and flavorful beans speak of ingenuity and tradition.

The Lancellottis: A Farm Family off the Farm

FIRST COURSES

At the farm table, dishes are presented like a vast patchwork, seemingly without rules and without end. However, in Italy, pastas always come first, and so they lead off this chapter as well. The second part of the chapter includes a tempting selection of other classic first courses Garlicky Cheese Polenta, Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings, Artichoke Frittata that can easily be turned into entrees.

Pasta

Two Sicilian Brothers

COST

A Look at Parmifiano-Reggiano

Mondo

First Courses

The Best of the Mountain

A Living Relic

SECOND COURSES

In the past, farmers reserved meat and gish for celbratory occasion, and in fact still treat them with infinite care. Lamb is a favorite, as is pork, and chicken as well as guinea hen and rabbit are fixtures. Plates of succulent Herb-Marinated Leg of Lam, or richly spirited Guinea Hen with Vin Santo, take their rightful place as the nourishing secondi.

Alcala

Malvarina

THE VEGETABLE GARDEN

The farmhouse table would be incomplete with the many offerings from the garden. Whether from an open-air market, a truck garden, a country field, or someone's small kitchen garden, fresh vegetables and herbs are the epicenter of Italian Farmhouse cooking.

Gorgeous Grappa: The Noninos of Friuli

The Italian Orto

On A Ligurian Slope

Fabio's Babbo The Urban Pepper Farmer

Biodynamic and Organic Farming

FROM THE BREAD OVEN

There is nothing more welcoming than the warm scent of freshly baked bread, or the golden heat that emanates from the hearth. For the Italian baker, the fruits of this labor of love are crisp-crusted loaves, fragrant pizza and focacce (flat breads), and biscotti, all of which you will find in the pages of this chapter.

Prosciutto with Love

A Mysterious Flavor

SWEET, SWEET

Desserts are one of the great pleasures of the Italian farm table. Finish a meal with fresh fruit heaped in a bowl and served alongside a richly flavored torta di nocciole (hazelnut cake), or with pastries like crostate, crisp-crusted tarts bursting with everything from ripe apricots to lemon marmalade. These simple and delicious desserts beg to be made often, and with abandon.

The Train Going 'Round the Mountain

An Afternoon with Maria Maurillo

THE PANTRY

The well-stocked pantry, with its lively array of pepper- and herb-infused oils, jars of fresh tomato sauce, and jam made with ripe figs and grapes straight off the vine, hints at the many possibilities of the Italian farmhouse kitchen.

The Italian Pantry

Dominic and terranova

Alcatraz

THE BASICS

The basics are the simple little recipes that every Italian farmhouse cook knows inherently. They are the rustic tomato sauce, the homemade pastas, the perfect dough for tender pizza all the from-scratch foods and seasonings that are elemental to the success of any dish.
