Festa del GiardinoFesta Del Giardino Cookbook

A Harvest of Recipes and Family Memories
Illustrated by Caterina Linarelli
Published by Forum Italicum Press

Reviews

My Italian vegetable cookbook is a collection of 125 recipes, inspired by the traditional Sicilian cooking of my grandparents and my mother. They taught me the secret of Italian vegetable preparation: use the freshest
seasonal vegetables in combination with good quality olive oil and fresh herbs.

The easy-to prepare recipes feature vegetables simply sautéed in extra-virgin olive oil and garlic, or cooked for hours combined with beans and grains.

The chapters are organized to follow the courses on an Italian menu
including antipasti, first and second courses, main and side dishes and
desserts.

Festa del Giardino is instructional and offers a guide to stocking the
Italian Pantry; cooking perfect al dente pasta every time; making crusty,
pizza and focaccia in your gas or electric oven; and tips on making creamy
risotto and fluffy gnocchi.

I think of Festa del Giardino as an extension of my cooking school. It is an
opportunity to share my family's traditions and recipes with readers who are
too far away to cook with me in my home. I hope the warmth that I feel as I
cook with my students will come through every vegetable recipe in this book
