  • Acquacotta Recipes and Stories from Tuscanys Secret Silver Coast
    Acquacotta Recipes and Stories from Tuscanys Secret Silver Coast
    ISBN: 9781743792117
    Publication date: 01/03/2017

    Uncover the recipes and stories from a largely unheralded region of Tuscany, the Silver Coast; a place of wild natural beauty, idyllic coastline, crumbling hilltop villages, and a rustic, wholesome cuisine.

    Acquacotta is a celebration of the traditional cuisine of a lesser known part of Tuscany, the Silver Coast, which forms part of the territory of Maremma. Acquacotta, literally meaning "cooked water", is Maremma's most famous dish, a soup made of slowly simmered tomatoes and onions and poached eggs. There are countless variations and every town has its own.

    The book includes personal stories memories and lessons from the people (producers, winemakers, breeders, fisherman) Emiko has met. The Silver Coast is a geographically quite narrow area in the southernmost coastal part of the region—and includes the island-like promontory of Monte Argentario, the island of Giglio, the lagoon town of Orbetello and the last Tuscan town on the border of Lazio, Capalbio. Surrounded by thick, wild boar-inhabiting, forest-covered hills and twisted, ancient olive trees, the area is known for its rustic peasant cooking, where hearty soups, hand-reared chickens or rabbits, foraged wild vegetables, mushrooms and chestnuts and wild-caught game have long provided sustenance—and still colour the local cuisine. Acquacotta champions the food Emiko loves to eat and cook—comforting, low-maintenance and easy to prepare. It's food that calls for sharing with friends or family, gathered around a big table. And like most peasant cuisine, it is about getting the best out of a few ingredients and providing a belly-filling meal that not only doesn't cost the earth, but is delicious.

    Acquacotta offers more than 80 recipes across five chapters divided by themes: Dal Bosco—which means feed from the woods and includes foraged and hunted foods; Dal Mare—which means from the sea and includes typical seafood of the area including from the lagoon; Dal Orto—which means from the vegetable patch; Dal Fattoria—which means from the farm and include dishes inspired by the farm tradition in the area, which often includes legumes, grains, rabbit, poultry and eggs; Dolci—sweets, preserves and homemade liquors.

  • Aperitivo The Cocktail Culture of Italy
    Aperitivo The Cocktail Culture of Italy
    ISBN: 9780847847440
    Publication date: 01/04/2016

    Aperitivo: from the Latin aperire, to open, as in open the door to friends, open conversation around the table, and open the appetite. Aperitivo is about coming together over drinks and snacks before dinner. It's a quintessentially Italian concept, and one that's worth emulating. Originating in the bars and cafes of northern cities such as Venice, Milan, and Turin, the custom has spread all over the country. Aperitivo takes the reader on a spirited ride through this cocktail culture, stopping at all the chicest and most classic bars and restaurants that have elevated this ritual to an art form. Many of the drinks are structured around vermouths and citrus- and botanical infused liqueurs, which offer a new world of complex flavours. They yield enticingly simple cocktails that refresh-without stunning the palate (thanks to a lighter alcohol content). But Aperitivo is just as much about the food because in Italy, you can't drink without eating. Recipes feature peppers stuffed with tuna, the legendary croquettes from Harry's Bar, and polenta squares with baccala, as well as endless variations of crostini and focaccia. Whether planning a party or just having a friend over, Aperitivo brings a whole new spirit of conviviality and lets you host in true Italian style.

    Publication date: 01/10/2011

    'Ci facciamo un piatto di pasta!' (Let's make a plate of pasta!)

    To help you make your own plates of pasta, here are detailed instructions for making and cutting pasta (including pasta flavoured with herbs, porcini, saffron and squid ink), and for making simple filled pastas and perfect gnocchi.

    To accompany your pasta, choose from an array of mouth-watering pestos –from the definitive Ligurian version made with basil and pine nuts to a vibrant-green pistachio pesto and a versatile orange and almond pesto that's equally good stirred through freshly cooked linguine, served with couscous or used as the basis of a salad dressing.

    Simple dishes mark the passage of the seasons, such as tagliatelle served with raw mushrooms in autumn, or with the first thin spears of asparagus in spring. In the cooler days of winter, authentic recipes for slow-cooked ragus (including a classic Bolognese sauce that has stood the test of time) really come into their own, filling the house with wonderful aromas.

    For the more adventurous cook, Lucio's executive chef Logan Campbell has contributed some contemporary interpretations of classic pasta dishes, including rabbit cannelloni with Jerusalem artichoke sauce and beetroot gnocchi with pancetta and goat's cheese.

Well, because it's Georgia, the love of his life who's asking, he puts his heart and soul into changing the way they eat. With advice from fitness and nutrition guru Donna Aston, Georgia helped Tobie identify the changes they needed to make and get healthy. They created 100 recipes free of gluten, refined sugar and highly processed carbs, with a healthy amount of 'good' fats, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and, above all, masses of flavour. From breakfast to lunches, dinners and dessert, this is how they eat now. 'This book is jam-packed with really delicious, honest, healthy food. Embrace it in your weekly routine and I'm sure you'll feel the benefits - I hope you love it as much as I do.' Jamie Oliver
