Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking, Marcella Hazan
Everything I needed to learn about Italian cooking, I learned from Marcella. Every page of this quintessential book is packed with simple, straightforward instructions to cook like you’re actually in Italy. Homemade pasta, proper Bolognese and lasagna the right way.
Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking is a culinary bible for anyone looking to master the art of Italian cooking, bringing together Marcella Hazan's most beloved books, The Classic Italian Cook Book and More Classic Italian Cooking, in a single volume, updated and expanded with new entries and 50 new recipes. Designed as a basic manual for cooks of all levels of expertise--from beginners to accomplished professionals--it offers both an accessible and comprehensive guide to techniques and ingredients and a collection of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire. As home cooks who have used Marcella's classic books for years (and whose copies are now splattered and worn) know, there is no one more gifted at teaching us just what we need to know about the taste and texture of a dish and how to achieve it, and there is no one more passionate and inspiring about authentic Italian food.
