Slow-cooked meats, homemade breads, flavorful pastas...these are the traditional comfort-food classics that Italians have been roasting, baking, curing, and making in their own kitchens for generations--dishes that people actually want to cook and eat. In Rustic Italian Food, acclaimed Philadelphia chef Marc Vetri celebrates the handcrafted cuisine of Italy, advocating a hands-on, back-to-the-basics approach to cooking. Home cooks of every skill level will revel in the 120 recipes, such as sweet Fig and Chestnut Bread, rich Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi, savory Slow-Roasted Lamb Shoulder, and fragrant Apple Fritters. Rustic Italian Food is also an education in kitchen fundamentals, with detailed, step-by-step instructions for making terrines, dry-cured salami, and cooked sausage; a thorough guide to bread and pasta making; and a primer on classic Italian preserves and sauces. Much more than just a collection of recipes, in this book Marc Vetri connects us directly to the essence of Italian food.

    I thought this was supposed to be on sale for $1.99. Looks like a great book though. Shouldn't bait and switch though.
  • Terrible formating

    By Élias de Kelliwic’h
    Not sure what happened, at the beginning everything was formatted correctly, but they updated the book and now everything is all over the place. No coherency in the layout an text. May be it was a PDF before, but it was far better than the current version. I can’t recommend it anymore.
  • The book Is great, but it was not made for this e-reader

    By Otto80
    I can't believe apple wouldn't put a disclaimer telling me that I'm reading a PDF. Awful reading experience.
