Additional Details

Description: Italian Classics is a cookbook unlike any other. The editors of Cook's Illustrated Magazine tried every possible method to bring you only the very best techniques and recipes. And because these recipes have been developed by American cooks using American ingredients, they will work in your home every time. 

Italian Classics also contains more than 225 illustrations that show you how to peel garlic cloves quickly, bread chicken cutlets neatly, roll out pasta dough, skin hazelnuts, and assemble tiramisu. You'll learn a quick tip for shredding mozzarella cheese that keeps the grater holes clear as well as basic techniques such as how to peel and seed tomatoes. Dozens of no-nonsense equipment ratings and taste tests of supermarket ingredients are also included. Find out why American pastas are every bit as good as Italian brands, which grater makes quick work of Parmesan cheese, and why an electric ice cream maker with a self-contained freezer unit is the best choice for making creamy gelato at home. 

More than 300 recipes cover the wide range of Italian home cooking. Choose from many favorite dishes, including braciole, chicken piccata, veal scaloppine, sausage calzones, fried calamari, marinated sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli rabe with garlic, Parmesan mashed potatoes, peaches in red wine, tiramisu, panna cotta, and espresso granita. Learn to cook less well-known regional recipes such as steak Fiorentina, Venetian-style rice and peas, Roman stuffed artichokes, and Sicilian chickpeas and escarole. Together, these recipes represent the very best of Italy's rich culinary heritage. 

Step into our test kitchen and learn how to make real Italian food, quickly and easily. You'll learn secrets to a red sauce that tastes like garden-fresh tomatoes as well as how to infuse a chicken with the flavors of rosemary and garlic. Italian Classics celebrates the diversity and breadth of a favorite ethnic cuisine with recipes that will stand the test of time.
