Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zuppe is a logical second volume in the series of Rome Sustainable Food Project cookbooks—soups are a centerpiece at almost every Academy meal, and the preparation that perhaps more than any other showcases the produce provided by farmer Giovanni Baernabei, whose farm provides the Academy’s kitchen with an endless source of fresh, organic vegetables that inspire the inventive seasonal menus. The fifty recipes draw from the four traditional categories of Italian soups: those made with water (aqua cotta), with stock (brodo), with cream (veloute), and soups for the evening meal. The recipes are arranged by seasons.


The Rome Sustainable Food Project, a program devoted to providing organic, local and sustainable meals for the American Academy in Rome, has launched a delicious revolution to rethink institutional dining. Headed by chef Mona Talbott, and guided by Alice Waters, the menus have given rise to a new, authentic cuisine, inspired by la cucina romana, Chez Panisse, and the collective experience of those working in the AAR kitchen.

About the Author

After culinary school, Mona Talbott was hired by Alice Waters to work at Chez Panisse and the Edible Schoolyard program. She later worked at Eli Zabar’s Vinegar Factory and EAT stores in New York and consulted for Hillary Clinton at her home in Chappaqua, New York. In 1999, Talbott began working for photographer Annie Leibovitz, and in 2004, she was hired by Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project to design a children’s gardening and cooking program. Since 2007, Talbott has been executive chef at the Rome Sustainable Food Project. She is the author of Biscotti (available from The Little Bookroom).


Annie Schlechter has been working as a photographer since 1998. Her clients include The World of Interiors, Wallpaper, House Beautiful, Real Simple, W magazine, Travel & Leisure, and many more.
