Italian cooks are masters of the art of preparing simmering soups and stews that showcase seasonal ingredients at their very best. Domenica Marchetti reveals their secrets with The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy, a collection of more than 60 exceptional, authentic recipes that celebrate each season in the Italian tradition. On a rainy day in fall, nothing takes the chill off like a bowl of Crema di Ceci con Maltagliati, a hearty, rustic soup of pured chickpeas and pasta drizzled with fresh olive oil. In winter, La Genovese di Signora Venditti, a rich ragu of slow-cooked beef and sweet onions, will surely lift the spirits. Vellutata di Asparagi con Orzo Perlato, a delicately flavored, creamy soup of tender asparagus, sweet fennel, and pearled barley makes a perfect spring welcome. And when summer comes, Zuppa di Cozze e Vongole Piccante, a spicy stew of mussels, clams, and ripe garden tomatoes is perfect for a casual dinner party. With practical information on equipment, seasonal and pantry ingredients, and a delicious mix of vanishing classics, regional specialties, treasured family recipes, and contemporary creations, The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy is a book to be savored throughout the year.
