Publisher Comments:

100 recipes for bold, gutsy, comforting dishes inspired by the flavors of Northern Italy, from the acclaimed Manhattan restaurant Sorella, co-owned and operated by rising star chef Emma Hearst, with her best friend (and honorary "sister") Sarah Krathen running the front of the house.

Emma and Sarah want to share their passion for gutsy home cooking, wine and cocktails, Northern Italy and New York City--and what it's like to be a couple of young, female entrepreneurs in the male-dominated and competitive restaurant world.

Featuring 100 recipes that reflect the authors' reverence for tradition and sense of adventure, the book will share their fun and creative approach to making food and hosting guests for dinner every night. Their philosophy is to keep it clean, keep it simple, and maintain the integrity of ingredients, and their sense of play and exploration will come through in the spirited text and selection of dishes.

The book reads as the narrative behind their friendship, inspiration, and opening and running Sorella together. Along with favorite restaurant recipes, organized by course and recreated for the home cook, are features on making pasta at home; what to drink (both when you're cooking and with the meal); how hospitality is manifested; and what they've learned about food, business, and partnership through this journey.

The recipes, drink notes, and step-by-step techniques are aimed at encouraging the home cook's intuition, offering just enough advice and encouragement to ease her way in the kitchen. Lifestyle photography and a fresh, lively design will showcase the restaurant's elegant-yet-warm style, while the stories will illuminate the authors' personalities. With a visual emphasis on vintage fashion and old-time Hollywood glamour, the gorgeous lifestyle photography will also feature the authors in Dolce Gabbana dresses and designer footwear, in the kitchen and out and about in New York City.

This book will appeal to anyone looking master Italian staples with a modern twist, as well as Italophiles and food lovers with wanderlust who can live vicariously through Emma and Sarah's unique marriage of food and friendship.

Synopsis:

100 recipes for bold, gutsy, comforting dishes inspired by the flavors of Northern Italy, from the acclaimed Manhattan restaurant Sorella, co-owned and operated by rising star chef Emma Hearst, with her best friend (and honorary “sister”) Sarah Krathen running the front of the house.

After meeting in culinary school, Emma Hearst and Sarah Krathen opened Sorella—Italian for “sister,” in a nod to the deep connection these friends feel for each other—on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Lauded for its distinctive blend of gutsy northern Italian fare, family-style spirit, and old-world glamour, their charming neighborhood spot has garnered legions of admirers who come for the ethereal homemade pastas, inspired cocktails, and easy conviviality.

In this, their debut cookbook, Emma and Sarah share behind-the-scenes stories, their passion for food and hospitality, and the secrets to making many of their most popular menu offerings at home. The more than one hundred recipes encompass bold-flavored dishes and signature favorites, including their show-stopping Broccoli Fritto and decadent egg-topped Pâté de Fegato, along with clever cocktails and savvy wine pairings.

Bolstered by stunning full-color photographs, visual vignettes, and unforgettable anecdotes that relate everything from the wisdom of Italian grandmothers and the mishaps of opening night to a starring role on Iron Chef, Sarah and Emma convey both their sparkling personalities and their dedication to balancing innovation and tradition. They also offer a truly unique glimpse into what it’s like for two young women to open and run a lively, welcoming, and wildly successful restaurant in New York City.

Selected Recipes Include:

• Arugula & prosciutto salad with pickled cherries

• Marinated mussels & straciatella cheese

• Tajarin with lamb ragu, black pepper ricotta, pistachios & mint

• Cavatelli with porcini & pancetta ragu

• Sorella gnocchi

• Pan-seared mackerel with onion-pine nut puree & pickled vegetables

• Marinated pork chop with wax beans, blistered cherry tomatoes & apple vinegar

About the Author

Emma and Sarah are the award-winning chef / owners of Sorella, an Italian restaurant specializing in Piemontese food, and Stellina, a bakery / gelato café, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. They are both graduates of The Culinary Institute of America. Hearst (the great-great-grandaughter of newspaper giant William Randolph Hearst) was named NY's Hottest Chef in 2009 and is the youngest competitor to appear on Iron Chef America (she lost by a slim margin to Michael Symon). Emma was also a finalist for a James Beard Award nomination in 2012. Sarah runs the front of the house and oversees the wine and cocktails program while Emma manages the food.
