The book is filled with gorgeous photographs of the region, as well as recipes that the reader can try at home. Central Italy, home to Florence, Rome and the Tuscany wine region, is probably what most people think of when they think of Italy. We took a trip to Florence this past summer, so I was most familiar with this section of the book, and I enjoyed reliving some of the best meals we have we have ever had by reading this. Proscuitto wrapped in melon, figs, bistecca steak , porchetta pork and the luscious Chianti wines can be found here in glorious abundance.

The Hunter's Chicken recipe will find a place on my table soon. Southern Italy has the hottest temperatures in all of Italy. The pace of life is a little slower here and you'll find tomatoes, eggplants and lots of fish anchovies, sardines, cuttlefish and octopuses and not as much meat. The recipe for Eggplant Parmesan looks incredible. Tasting Italy- A Culinary Journey is a wonderful book to give as a gift to anyone who has traveled to Italy, and with the holidays coming up it's the perfect time.

National Geographic covers the fascinating history of the different regions, and America's Test Kitchen perfectly pairs their best authentic Italian recipes with the history. Even armchair travelers will be entranced by this beautiful book. Nov 08, CLM rated it really liked it Shelves: cooking , italy , nonfiction.

It's a travelogue celebrating the history of food in Italy through each of its regions and it is a big book and very beautiful.

I have only spent a few hours reading through it so far and I find mys The combination of National Geographic and America's Test Kitchen make Tasting Italy much more than a cookbook.

With America's Test Kitchen involved, you know that each of the recipes included have been fully vetted in the kitchen and each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful photo and a story about how the recipe came to be.

I have a feeling that this book will become a nightstand addition in order to work my way through the pages and savor each region's bounty each night. Tasting Italy would make a wonderful holiday gift and is a book that will be equally adored by Italophiles, cooks, foodies, travel junkies, and armchair travelers alike. I have not had the pleasure of going to Italy yet , but Tasting Italy makes me want to book a trip there.

I was not compensated for this review and as always, my thoughts and opinions are my own. Oct 31, Bryanna Plog rated it it was amazing. This is not just a coffee table book or a cookbook. I got Tasting Italy thinking it would be a combination of these things, and was happily surprised by the narrative in each chapter. There are good sidebars and short pieces about different ingredients i. The pasta in walnut sauce was a perfect meal on a rainy, fall day and just as good as I remembered from when I had it in the Cinque Terre.

I also made spaghetti with cheese and pepper which was simple and and tasty; the milk-braised pork roast, which took much longer than I thought but still pretty good; and bread salad panzanella which might become a new go-to for me. I slightly overcooked the hazelnut cake proof I am a traveler first and cook second perhaps , but the torta was still a hit with my roommates. Perhaps the best part of making recipes from this book is that it forced me to take the time to cook and savor the food.

You can make your own stuffed pasta or throw in some cheese with dried pasta in 20 minutes. The authors would have done well to add in time estimates on the recipes but these unfortunately are not included. Better yet, bring a little taste of Italy into your own kitchen.

There were quite a few recipes that enticed me, but there was one that really stood out enough for me to make it and that was Pasta with Walnut Sauce. I know it sounds strange, but on Christmas Eve, our family has a tradition of making a buttered noodle with Walnuts, so I knew I had to try this one.

The end result was similar to what my grandmother made, and this definitely will be a recipe that will be made for a holiday.

Not Now. Wolfert, who started with Morocco and tore through France, Turkey, and the rest of the Levant and Maghreb, was the original culinary adventurer. Couscous, cassoulet, duck breast, and Aleppo pepper, to name just four, would barely exist in this country were it not for her exhaustive, brimmingly enthusiastic researches. As a teacher and raconteur she was and is spellbinding, though her life has been slowed by dementia that impairs her short- but not long-term memory—a condition she has been extremely open about, becoming something of a poster child in articles and documentaries on adaptive behavior and, of course, diets.

The team Thelin assembled mounted a Kickstarter campaign when publishers demurred, and triumphed after the fact when an actual publisher printed a subsequent edition. The real triumph, though, is an ultra-professional project full of tempting pictures and recipes that are both achievable, usually with no little concentration, and boundary-pushing even now. No one has been as impassioned and assiduous. Wolfert has had a kind of X-ray vision into flavor and how to build it, with an eye always on the tricks the women whose kitchens she learned in used, both wittingly and un-.

She knows how to dissect those and deduce how and why they worked, and show home cooks how to reproduce flavors through layering techniques that would influence them—and many, many professional chefs—for all of their cooking lives. A dinner-party recipe of scallops in tangerine sauce, inspired by the much-mourned chef Jean-Louis Palladin, is an easy way to accomplish layering, with tangerine juice and cream separately and quickly reduced by quick evaporation before being blended.

Recipes for staples at the back include homemade pomegranate concentrate she popularized it and a Turkish yogurt sauce with garlic, lemon, sweet-hot Aleppo pepper, and mint leaves that will be an all-purpose accompaniment. Bread is back. Even those who do will want a copy, however tantalizing, of Modernist Bread , the most recent diamonds-are-forever production of the vast team assembled near Seattle by Nathan Myhrvold, the first chief technology officer of Microsoft and irrepressible enthusiast for everything to do with physics, dinosaurs, microphotography, and food.

Six years ago he published a five-volume behemoth, Modernist Cuisine , which I actually read. Now, with the baker Francisco Migoya, Myhrvold has returned to his first love, as in when he was 9 years old: baking.
