The Brooklyn destination the New York Times called “one of the most extraordinary restaurants in the country”—which began as a pizza place and quickly redefined the urban food landscape—releases its highly anticipated debut cookbook. When Roberta’s opened in 2008 in a concrete bunker in Bushwick, it was a pizzeria where you could stop in for dinner and stumble out hours later, happy. It’s still a down-the-rabbit-hole kind of place but has also become a destination for groundbreaking food, a wholly original dining experience, and a rooftop garden that marked the beginning of the urban farming movement in New York City. The forces behind Roberta’s—chef Carlo Mirarchi and co-owners Brandon Hoy and Chris Parachini—share recipes, photographs, and stories meant to capture the experience of Roberta’s for those who haven’t been, and to immortalize it for those who’ve been there since the beginning.

Among their many pleasures, Donna Leon’s Commissario Guido Brunetti novels have long been celebrated for their mouth-watering descriptions of food. Multicourse lunches at home with Paola and the children, snacks grabbed at a bar with a glass of wine or two, a quick sandwich during a busy day, or a working lunch at a neighborhood trattoria in the course of an investigation have all delighted Brunetti, as well as Leon’s readers and reviewers. And then there’s the coffee, the pastries, the wine, and the grappa. In Brunetti’s Cookbook, Donna Leon’s best friend and favorite cook brings to life these fabulous Venetian meals. Eggplant crostini, orrechiette with asparagus, pumpkin ravioli, roasted artichokes, baked branzino, pork ragu with porcini these are just a few of the over ninety recipes for antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolci. The recipes are joined by excerpts from the novels, four-color illustrations, and six original essays by Donna Leon on food and life in Venice. Charming, insightful, and full of personality, they are the perfect addition to this long awaited book.
Lombardian chef Alessandro Pavoni believes that cooking and eating are social events, and he celebrates this each day in his three Sydney restaurants, the two-hatted Ormeggio at the Spit, Chiosco by Ormeggio, and Via Alta in Willoughby, which specialises in the food of Lombardy. In this beautifully illustrated cookbook, Alessandro shares the treasured family recipes of his homeland and youth. Located in the north of Italy, Lombardy boasts a diverse landscape, from snow-covered Italian Alps and lakes, to the plains of the River Po, from where risotto rice hails. This geographic diversity is reflected in the food - cave-aged cheeses and cured meats, polenta, tender meat cooked over a wood-fired spit and, of course, risotto. Lombardy is home to some of Italy's most famous dishes, including osso bucco, bollito misto with salsa verde and mustard fruits and panettone, and Alessandro parts with his versions of these classics here, along with over 100 more of his treasured recipes, such as Ricotta and Spinach Gnocchi, Buckwheat Polenta with Sausage and Gorgonzola, Risotto Milanese and Pappardelle with Elsa's Wild Boar Ragu.
