Publisher Comments:

If you dream of Italy — and who does not? — be prepared to fall in love with this extraordinary cookbook. Written by Lynne Rossetto Kasper, author of andlt;Iandgt;The Splendid Table: Recipes from Emilia-Romagna, the Heartland of Northern Italian Foodandlt;/Iandgt; (winner of both the James Beard and Julia Child/IACP Cookbook-of-the-Year Awards), it is every bit the equal of its celebrated predecessor. andlt;BRandgt; Read its exuberant pages, eat its lusty dishes, and you enter a landscape vibrant with rural life. You are one with the terrain. In some sense, you are home. That, of course, is the miracle of Italy — no matter where we come from, we want to be a part of it. And the miracle of andlt;Iandgt;The Italian Country Tableandlt;/Iandgt; is its ability to take us there. andlt;BRandgt; And what a journey! You will never be as impatient to get into your kitchen as when you are planning a meal from this book. Two hundred recipes, personally collected from home cooks throughout the length and breadth of Italy, will keep calling you back. andlt;BRandgt; Who could resist the "Gatto" di Patate, a mashed-potato "lasagne" from the Neapolitan countryside? Or a Tuscan Mountain Supper of warm beans tossed with an herbed tomato sauce and eaten with tart greens? Or Pasta of the Grape Harvest, a Sicilian dish of grapes, red wine, orange zest, spices, pistachios and linguine? Or Chocolate Polenta Pudding Cake? andlt;BRandgt; Kasper, host of Public Radio's andlt;Iandgt;The Splendid Table,andlt;/Iandgt; is a master teacher who thinks about cooking in a way that is radically distinctive. Her chapter on tomatoes and tomato sauces, a treasure by itself, will change the way you think about them — and cook them — forever. Her guide to buying and saucing pasta contains more useful facts than many books that devote themselves to pasta exclusively. andlt;BRandgt; Kasper, the grandchild of Italian immigrants, describes herself as someone with a love of lingering "in places where life changes slowly." This personal book abounds with stories of artisans, farmers and family. It is a portrait of Italian country life. andlt;BRandgt; Where you read andlt;Iandgt;The Italian Country Table,andlt;/Iandgt; cook from it or use it to plan a trip (there is an appendix that lists guest farms, country hotels, restaurants and museums), you have only to turn its pages to be transported to a rustic Italy that few of us know, but all of us long for. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;* 16 pages of finished dishes in full colorandlt;BRandgt; * 50 black-and-white photographs of country lifeandlt;/Bandgt;
