    "Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine. Each is a mirror of its city's culture, history, and geography. Cucina romana is the country's greatest standout. Tasting Rome provides a complete picture of a place that many love but few know completely. In sharing Rome's celebrated dishes, street food innovations, and forgotten recipes, journalist Katie Parla and photographer Kristina Gill showcase its unique character and reveal its truly evolved food cultureua culmination of 2,000 years of history. The recipes here acknowledge the foundations of this cuisine and demonstrate how it has transitioned to the variations found today. They cover the more expected classics (Cacio e Pepe, Pollo alla Romana); the fascinating but largely undocumented Sephardic Jewish cuisine (Polpette Finte, Pizzarelle); the authentic and tasty offal (Guanciale, Insalata di Nervitti); and so much more. Studded with chef features and gorgeous photography highlighting both the food and its hidden city, this book transports readers and immediately inspires them to start cooking.

    Tortellini At Midnight
    ISBN: 9781743794531
    Publication date: 18/02/2019

    Sometime in the 1950s, Emiko Davies' nonno-in-law began the tradition of ringing in the new year with tortellini al sugo. He served it along with spumante and a round of tombola, and sparked a trend; up until the 1970s, you could find tortellini at midnight on New Year's Eve in the bars around the Tuscan town of Fucecchio.

    This is just one of the heirloom dishes in this collection, for which Emiko Davies has gathered some of her favourite family recipes. They trace generations that span the length of Italy, from the Mediterranean port city of Taranto in the southern heel of Puglia to elegant Turin, the city of aperitif and Italian cafe culture in the far north and, finally, back to Tuscany, which Emiko calls home.

    Tortellini at Midnight is a book rich with nostalgia, with fresh, comforting food and stunning photography. It is a book that is good for the soul.

Breakfasts are considered, lunch often eaten at home with family, and weekend dinners a feast.

    From the weekly Guardian Cook columnist and winner of the Andre Simon and Guild of Food Writers' comes a book of sumptuous recipes, flavours and stories from Rachel Roddy's two kitchens in Sicily and Rome. 'Rachel Roddy describing how to boil potatoes would inspire me. I want to live under her kitchen table. There are very, very few who possess such a supremely uncluttered culinary voice as hers, just now.'Simon Hopkinson'This is a recipe book that reflects the way I cook and eat: uncomplicated, direct and adaptable Italian family food that reflects the season. The two kitchens of the title are my kitchens in Rome and Sicily. In a sense, though, we could have called the book "many kitchens" as I invite you to make these recipes your own.'For the last twelve years, food-writer, cook and photographer Rachel Roddy has immersed herself in the culture of Roman cooking, but it was the flavours of the south that she and her Sicilian partner, Vincenzo, often craved. Eventually the chance arose to spend more time at his old family house in south-east Sicily, where Rachel embraced the country's traditional recipes and the stories behind them. In Two Kitchens she celebrates the food and flavours of Rome and Sicily and shares over 120 of these simple, everyday dishes from her two distant but connected kitchens. From tomato and salted ricotta salad, caponata and baked Sicilian pasta to lemon crumble, honeyed peaches and almond and chocolate cake, they are the authentic recipes that you will want to cook again and again until you've made them your own.List of chapters: Vegetables and Herbs - Tomatoes; Aubergines; Peas; Broad Beans; Cauliflower; Potatoes; Onions; HerbsFruit and Nuts - Lemons; Peaches; Oranges; Grapes and Figs; AlmondsMeat, Fish and Dairy - Beef and pork; Chicken; White fish; Fresh anchovies and sardines; Eggs; RicottaStorecupboard - Chickpeas; Lentils; Preserved anchovies; Flour; BreadRachel's first book, Five Quarters: Recipes and Notes from a Kitchen in Rome, won the Andre Simon Food Book Award and the Guild of Food Writers' First Book Award in 2015.
