Details: Product Description Mimi explores the beautiful coasts and countrysides of Italy in this lavishly photographed cookbook featuring simple, authentic recipes inspired by the country's devoted producers and rich food heritage. Beloved for her gorgeous cookbooks A Kitchen in France and French Country Cooking, Mimi Thorisson, along with her lively family and smooth fox terriers in tow, immersed readers in the warmth of their convivial lives in rural France. In their newest cookbook, the Thorissons pause their lives in the idyllic French countryside to start a new adventure in Italy and satisfy their endless curiosity and passion for the magic of Italian cooking. Old World Italian captures their journey and the culinary treasures they discovered. From Tuscany to Umbria to Naples and more, Mimi dives into Italy's diverse regional cuisines and shares 100 recipes for authentic, classic dishes, enriched by conversations with devoted local food experts who share their timeworn techniques and stories. You'll indulge in dishes culled from across the country, such as plump agnolotti bathed in sage and butter from the north, the tomato-rich rag√Ļs and pastas of the southwest, and the multifaceted, seafood-laden cuisine of Sicily. The mysteries of Italian food culture will unravel as you learn to execute a perfect Neapolitan-style pizza at home or make the most sublime yet elemental cacio e pepe. Full of local color, history, and culture, plus evocative, sumptuous photography shot by Mimi's husband, Oddur Thorisson, Old World Italian transports you to a seat at the family's table in Italy, where you may never want to leave. Review ‚ÄúThese stories and recipes are a real tribute to everything I love about Italy.¬†Mimi has successfully shared what is important in the Italian culinary tradition: seasonal ingredients at their best,¬†careful attention to local traditions, and regional recipes that are delicious and attainable for the home cook.¬†The stories are written with a contemporary vision and appreciation for old-world cuisine, and the photos and recipes are exquisite.¬†This book is a must-have for both¬†younger and older generations who want to cook and understand the beauty of Italian food.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒLidia Bastianich ‚ÄúPassion, place, and family permeate the writing and recipes in¬† Old World Italian.¬† As you get lost in Mimi‚Äôs poetic words, you are transported to Torino, Italy‚ÄĒyou can almost taste the freshness of the basil and hear the kiddos running about as the adults ceremoniously sip their aperitivo.¬† Many of us dream of the romantic notion of picking up our lives to follow our heart‚ÄĒMimi actually did it. And with ease, grace, and authenticity. Every recipe is imbued with love‚ÄĒthese are not meals to look at, they are dishes to savor, that have a sense of history and tradition, captured through a modern and fearless lens.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒAthena Calderone ‚ÄúMimi‚Äôs words and recipes have the power to transport us to another time and place, one of magic and plenty, of deep feeling and treasured memories. But her most endearing trait, beyond how beautifully she writes and that her delicious and deeply relevant recipes always work, is how warm and inviting she is both on and off the page. Viva Italia, and viva Mimi!¬† Old World Italian¬†is a treasure‚ÄĒa guide to embracing life, and Italy, with open arms.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒSarah Copeland About the Author Mimi Thorisson is a French cook and writer living with her family between M√©doc, France, and Turin, Italy.
