Description: What impresses me about Italian food is its utter simplicity. Salads of garden-fresh greens lightly glistening with aromatic dressings. Pastas of all shapes tossed with quickly prepared sauces. Meats, poultry and seafood hot from the grill or stovetop, fragrant with fresh herbs. Satisfying, simple desserts that leave the palate refreshed. And loaves of crusty bread that are the perfect accompaniment to every meal." 

Such is the lifelong enthusiasm for Italian food held-by Chuck Williams, founder of the Williams-Sonoma cookware stores and catalog. His words also sum up the delightful contents of Simple Italian Cooking, a collection of 60 recipes for what Mr. Williams calls "my favorite Italian dishes." Asparagus with Capers and Pine Nuts. Fresh Tomato and Bread Soup with Basil. Cheese Ravioli. Polenta with Parmesan Cheese. Saffron Risotto with Crab. Roasted Rosemary Chicken. Veal Scaloppine with Marsala. Mashed Potatoes with Rosemary and Lemon. Grape Focaccia. Almond Biscotti. Every recipe is easy to make and shown in a full-page, full-color photograph. 

Throughout this charmingly illustrated book, Mr. Williams shares a lifetime of useful kitchen tips, along with ideas for variations on each recipe. You'll also find sample menus and illustrated guides to kitchen equipment, cooking techniques and basic Italian ingredients.
