Not so long ago, Italian food was regarded as a poor man's gruel-little more than pizza, macaroni with sauce, and red wines in a box. Here, John Mariani shows how the Italian immigrants to America created, through perseverance and sheer necessity, an Italian-American food culture, and how it became a global obsession. The book begins with the Greek, Roman, and Middle Eastern culinary traditions before the boot-shaped peninsula was even called "Italy," then takes readers on a journey through Europe and across the ocean to America alongside the poor but hopeful Italian immigrants who slowly but surely won over the hearts and minds of Americans by way of their stomachs. Featuring evil villains such as the Atkins diet and French chefs, this is a rollicking tale of how Italian cuisine rose to its place as the most beloved fare in the world, through the lives of the people who led the charge. With savory anecdotes from these top chefs and restaurateurs: - Mario Batali - Danny Meyer - Tony Mantuano - Michael Chiarello - Giada de Laurentiis - Giuseppe Cipriani - Nigella Lawson And the trials and triumphs of these restaurants: - Da Silvano - Spiaggia - Bottega - Union Square Cafe - Maialino - Rao's - Babbo - Il Cantinori

For anyone interested in a healthier, lighter alternative to traditional French cuisine, this collection of simple, easy French recipes focuses on organic, locally sourced, and sustainable ingredients. Alain Ducasse's Nature series of cookbooks makes eating healthfully on a daily basis both simple and pleasurable. Ducasse dispels the idea that French food is defined by complicated techniques, time- consuming recipes, and loads of butter and cream. Along with nutritionist Paule Neyrat and chef Christophe Saintagne, he shows how going back to basics means rediscovering the pleasures of sustainable, seasonal French food with maximum nutrition and flavor. The recipes are first and foremost delicious, but they are also healthy and respectful of natural resources and stress sustainable practices--which is why animal protein is de-emphasized (as well as salt and sugar, too) in favor of more vegetables, more legumes, and more grains, leaving meat and fish to be used sparingly--if at all, as many of the recipes are vegetarian--for flavor. This volume takes a more holistic approach to mealtime and includes tips and ideas for reusing leftovers and reducing waste.
This elegant 26th edition of the French Country Diary employs vintage typography and 58 evocative new photographs by Guillaume de Laubier to enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar. The gleaming slipcase features a vibrant blue and white Provençal fabric pattern with a contrasting border fabric from the Olivades company in Saint-Rémy, while the linen-textured hardcover book itself has a red floral design that displays the year “2014” in a decorative medallion. Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages, and inspiring landscapes. This year’s diary visits the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; strolls through the romantic gardens of Eugénie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explores the palm-decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; and enjoys a pre-Christmas evening on the Left Bank at the Deux Magots café. Also included are lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages.
