Cucina Fresca by Viana La Place, Evan Kleiman

Cucina Rustica, the "rustic kitchen," as interpreted by he authors, is Italian food at its freshest, simplest, and most satisfying.

It is a celebration of the pleasures of unpretentious cooking - earthy, nourishing food that takes its inspiration for the Italian classics we all adore and translates them into elegant dishes for today's busy kitchen and modern table. In 250 recipes the authors prove that food with great taste and style can undemanding and easy to prepare. They offer:

An innovative array of antipasti from broiled cheeses topped with woodsy mushrooms to artichokes marinated in lemon and thyme.

Amazingly quick soups of garden-fresh tomatoes and Arborio rice, or wild mushrooms with Marsala over crostini.

Main-course salads such as chicken with mozzarella and vegetables, and summery salads with sweet shrimp, yellow peppers, green beans and basil

Skewers of shrimp, veal and sausage perfumed with herbs and grilled over glowing coals.

Pastas with unique and ways-to prepare sauces: fusfulli with grilled vegetables, pasta with fresh tuna and mint, perciatelli with pancetta and red wine.

Rustic cakes and elegant mascarpone flavored with espresso and chocolate; the ultimate tiramisu; luscious figs braised in honey and wine.

Plus a special section on ingredients and techniques for marinating everything from radicchio and olives to sardines, peppers,, mushrooms, onions, and more.

Whether you're a novice or an experienced cook, these are the kinds of recipes that will become much loved standbys, providing dozens of memorable meals.
