Soups from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome, the Rome Sustainable Food Project
Hardcover ISBN: 1892145979
Zuppe is a logical second volume in the series of Rome Sustainable Food Project cookbooks—soups are a centerpiece at almost every Academy meal, and the preparation that perhaps more than any other showcases the produce provided by farmer Giovanni Baernabei, whose farm provides the Academy’s kitchen with an endless source of fresh, organic vegetables that inspire the inventive seasonal menus. The fifty recipes draw from the four traditional categories of Italian soups: those made with water (aqua cotta), with stock (brodo), with cream (veloute), and soups for the evening meal. The recipes are arranged by seasons. The Rome Sustainable Food Project, a program devoted to providing organic, local and sustainable meals for the American Academy in Rome, has launched a delicious revolution to rethink institutional dining. Headed by chef Mona Talbott, and guided by Alice Waters, the menus have given rise to a new, authentic cuisine, inspired by la cucina romana, Chez Panisse, and the collective experience of those working in the AAR kitchen.

As a bonus, the book features 100 illustrations of ingredients and pasta-making techniques and no-nonsense instructions for stocking an Italian pantry, cooking al dente, stuffing ravioli, and choosing cheese. No other cookbook combines such rigorous authenticity with such user-friendly, delicious recipes.

Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy of Rome
Hardcover ISBN: 1936941023
"Even if you haven't landed one of the coveted internships in the kitchen at the American Academy in Rome, you can have a behind-the-scenes tutorial in the way that pastas and sauces are made in its kitchen. The recipes in Pasta are arranged in the same order as the interns are taught to make them, from simple to more complex, and are organized in the way Italians think about pasta, not only as fresh or dry, but by the base of the sauces (oil-, tomato-, meat-, and vegetable). Even the most sophisticated cooks will be intrigued by Chef Chris Boswell's engaging notes that explain what makes the flavors work together, why and how the sauces work with the pastas, and what makes a dish not only great, but unforgettable."--

Meat Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome
Hardcover ISBN: 1936941120
Carne is the fifth in the series of cookbooks documenting the renowned farm-to-table meals served by the Rome Sustainable Food Project, founded by Alice Waters, at the American Academy in Rome. Following volumes on biscotti, vegetables, pastas, and soups, this cookbook focuses on Executive Chef Christopher Behr’s favorite subject, meat: beef, lamb, pork, rabbit, and poultry. Chef Behr also offers more than a dozen recipes for side dishes, or contorni, that he serves alongside meat entrées: salads (including Radicchio Salad with Green Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette with Walnuts and Grilled Cucumber Salad with Yogurt), bean dishes, Sweet and Sour Squash, Pickled Green Tomatoes with Garlic, Hot Pepper and Mint (a dish that sold out within hours when he offered it at BKLYN Larder), and his legendary roasted potatoes that are crisp and golden on the outside with the creamy consistency of mashed potatoes on the inside. The Italian food of the Jersey shore is near and dear to Chef Behr’s heart, and when he’s homesick he cooks those iconic dishes, from meat loaf to short ribs, although his versions reflect his experiences in California, New York, and Rome—they’re lighter than the classic version but nonetheless deliver all their robust satisfaction.
A Culinary Traveller in Tuscany
Exploring & Eating Off the Beaten Tracj
Paperback ISBN: 1892145685
Each of the ten itineraries in this cookbook/guidebook takes readers through parts of Tuscany that still remain largely undiscovered and into the kitchens of more than fifty superb but little-known restaurants specializing in regional cuisine–those that are for the most part overlooked by tourists and known only to the locals. Each regional section begins with illuminating and absorbing explanations of what makes Tuscan cooking so unique: location, location, location. You’ll read about a bean so beloved by a village that it’s been elevated to cult status–but unknown a few kilometers down the road; an aboriginal baby lamb that is almost unknown outside of the Zeri valley; the endless array of vegetable tarts found nowhere in Tuscany but Lunigiana and Garfagnana. With this guide in hand, you’ll not only know where to dine but what to order when you get there. In addition to 100 recipes, also included are nearby points of interest, descriptions and contact information for restaurants, trattorie, gourmet shops, wineries, olive oil producers, local markets, and regional food festivals, and how to find the monasteries, workshops, and artisans’ studios that offer local items ranging from herbal beauty products to traditional ceramics and handwoven linens.
