Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marcella Hazan is acclaimed for her trailblazing cookbooks, but first and foremost she is a teacher. From cooking classes held in her small New York City apartment kitchen in the 1960s to the avidly sought after Master Classes she led in her beautiful Venice home, Marcella has been the authoritative guide to Italian cooking.

This much-anticipated follow-up to Marcella Cucina offers 100 new tantalizing recipes that bring Marcella's warm, conversational, and illuminating teachings into home kitchens everywhere. The legendary author and cooking teacher shares invaluable lessons in Italian cooking, including mastering traditional techniques, selecting and using ingredients, and planning and preparing complete Italian menus. Drawing on her unique ability to present each recipe as a narrative with subplots, characters, and rich history, Marcella demonstrates just how many delicious new stories she still has to tell.

Review:

"Hazan, the woman credited with teaching Americans that there's more to Italian cooking than spaghetti and meatballs, models her sixth book on her renowned cooking courses. Thus, as readers progress through this work, they'll feel Hazan's censorious presence as they wonder, for example, if they can skip blanching and proceed directly to sauting rapini, but they'll learn a lot if they can overlook her occasionally blunt manner ('The unbalanced use of garlic is the single greatest cause of failure in would-be Italian cooking'). Hazan gives loads of practical instructions and dozens of fantastic recipes concentrating on insaporire, the act of developing 'the flavor of a single or several ingredients.' Indeed, insaporire is the focus of many lessons, whether it's making the perfect Italian broth — subtler than stock, yet elegant and versatile — or matching pasta shapes to sauces. Nearly the first hundred pages consist of information-packed paragraphs deriving from Hazan's classes, where she haughtily but knowingly details techniques and ingredients. Next come the recipes, a tasty array of antipasti, pasta sauces, homemade pasta, fish, meat and vegetables. Throughout, readers will find useful notes — 'Marcella Says' — in which the famous teacher gives hands-on advice. Forecast: Though aging, Hazan is still teaching and will promote this book nationwide. Her fans will surely want it for their collections."
