Description: To be Mauro Golmarvi's guest at Assaggio Ristorante -- recognized by Zagat Survey in 2002 as one of the best restaurants in Seattle -- is to be persuaded that cooking and eating are acts of passion.
This link between passion and food is one of the reasons why in December 2004, when Mauro cooked at New York's famed James Beard House, the place was packed with people from Seattle, all regulars who didn't want to miss a night with Mauro in the kitchen.
In this cookbook, with his characteristic wit and charm, Mauro shares not only the best of his recipes but also his philosophy of food: simplicity, honesty, and most important, passion -- the slow buildup from the foreplay of antipasto to the rich explosion of piatto forte and the gentle reveling of dolce.
From Mauro's famous Insalata di Francesca to his mouthwatering Ossobuco alia Milanese, these recipes are designed to stir up that passion in your own kitchen. Advice on wines inspired by Assaggio's Wine Spectator Award of Excellence-winning collection will help you get in the mood. Provocative food photography leaves little to the imagination...
Bring the passion into your own kitchen.
