Almost twenty years ago, with the publication of "The Classic Italian Cook Book, " followed by "More Classic Italian Cooking, " Marcella Hazan introduced Americans to a whole new world of Italian food. As Roy Andries de Groot wrote, Marcella's book is the most authentic guide to Italian food ever written in the U.S. Where other authors failed, Marcella has brilliantly succeeded in capturing (and conveying to the reader on every page) the feel, the aromatic scent, the subtle nuances of fresh country flavors and, above all, the easy uncomplication of Italian food prepared in the Italian style.
Now a new generation is ready to master the art of Italian cooking, and their bible will be "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking "this new volume that combines the two books, updates and expanded throughout. Designed as a basic manual for cooks on every level from beginners to accomplished professionals it offers both an accessible and comprehensive guide to techniques and ingredients and a collection of the most delicious recipes from the Italian repertoire.
