|Filled with the passion and personality of its author, it is a book not only of fine food and its careful preparation but of personal reminiscences and penetrating commentary about the sensual pleasure of food and its place in our lives. In vivid introductory essays and seductive headnotes, the narrative of an extraordinary culinary life unfolds. With each memory of a trip, a meal, or a flavor, we are treated to the perspective of a great cook and teacher - one who believes that the finest Italian cooking is found in the home. In Marcella Cucina she focuses on regional cooking, turning her sharp eye to every area of Italy and offering a rich array of flavors and textures from cities and villages alike. Best of all, Marcella cooks at your side with easy-to-follow instructions and lavish full-color photographs that teach you her techniques - from preparing homemade pasta to cleaning artichokes - and allow you flawlessly to re-create her magic in your own kitchen.|
