wow cooking!

Extra Virgin

This is a beautiful book!So glad I ordered this book to review despite that we had to cover up some of the  pictures due to immodesty! The front drew me in and so did the inside  with all its  wonderful mouth watering  pictures.This cookbook by Gabriele and Debi brings a bit of Tuscany to your table. it was put to use right away!This cookbook by Gabriele and Debi brings a bit of Tuscany to your table.  First I read it all before deciding on some recipes for mothers day!  I wanted to make every recipe. everyone in the family loved the recipes from  my  7 year old sister to my father and mother.I absolutely love the cookbook. I have tried five recipes so far. For mothers day I made Risotto, Hunters chicken ( with added peppers), and Florentine orange cake( sliced it open and added whipped cream and berries). all recipes got raves and the cake

Must Have Cookbook for any italian fans!The book is beautifully illustrated and I am so excited to start cooking through it. A must have REAL ITALIAN book for your collection! You will use it more than you think.This book will not disappoint, it far exceeded my expectations- except for a few of the pictures. I would get it and block out pictures ( a few) before giving as a gift. Do add to your library! I am really thrilled to see Extra Virgin (Gabriele & Debi) get out a cookbook. I am not disappointed. It is beautifully done, bound and written. I love the pictures. The simple and easy to follow directions.  I could keep on going but  one must have a look for ones self.

 "I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review."

DEBI MAZAR and GABRIELE CORCOS are ambassadors of contemporary Tuscan cooking. In Extra Virgin,food, family, and style come together in a celebration of the pleasures of the rustic Italian table with 120 recipes for simple yet exquisite meals that are accessible, full of fresh flavor, and easy to prepare. Gabriele is a traditional Italian with a big heart, and Debi is an outgoing, brash New York City girl. Their sassy and playful exchanges illuminate what’s important in everyday life: good food and a lot of love.

Ranging from traditional antipasti and soups to their spin on entrees, pizzas, and desserts, recipes include Pecorino and Honey Dip, a sweet and salty way to start a meal; tangy, luscious Grilled Apricots with Goat Cheese Ricotta, inspired by wild Tuscan apricot trees; and Sausage and Beans, which offers hints of fennel in a Tuscan red sauce. Here, too, are Braised Artichokes softened in guanciale-infused oil, Breakfast Pizza, and Coffee Granita just as Italians make it.

So flag these recipes, get sauce on them, let splashes of olive oil mark the pages—and invite Debi and Gabriele’s charisma and passion for cooking to spill into your kitchen.http://www.randomhouse.com/book/226338/extra-virgin-by-gabriele-corcos-and-debi-mazar#praiserai
