I have purchased and perused many Italian cookbooks.  To me this one by Marcella Hazen surpasses all the rest by A MILE:

http://www.amazon.com/Essentials-Classic-Italian-Cooking-Marcella-ebook/dp/B0054KMKKO

The recipes are clean, simple and totally delicious.  Can't use as many of them since being on ER but am able to modify and/or use a high percentage even now.  

I Do miss being able to make her eggplant/tomato pasta sauce though.  It was absolutely heavenly.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

Quoted from san j
RAO'S COOKBOOK: Over 100 Years of Italian Home Cooking, by Frank Pellegrino.
A recent purchase. A great joy to read.
Much of the fare is off-limits for me, but the book captures the restaurant and celebrates one of the world's most wonderful cuisines, as prepared by one of its greatest and longest-lived restaurants. So simple. So vital. What FOOD is all about, for me.  

I love the use of "Flavored Olive Oil" (brief garlic simmering), so frequent throughout the book. I love the sheer simplicity of the recipes and the short ingredient lists. The quality of the food issuing from the Rao's kitchen is spectacular.
And I love (I'll say it again) the cuisine of Napoli.
So glad I have the B imagination that permits me to absorb a dish without eating it! All the Marinara and Shellfish I could possibly want, just by reading the cookbook!
Mamma Mia!

I just finished watching Anthony Bourdain - Parts Unknown: Morocco (on Netflix instant watch) and the food in that episode looked so delicious and remarkably very compliant to my SWAMI. So, I just requested from another library The Food of Morocco by Paula Wolfert which has rave reviews on Amazon.com.

After I read through it, I'll try to remember to come back to this thread and give a review.  Based on that episode, I surely would love to travel there.

It is an amazing place and there is nowhere else in the world like it! The smells of the food and spices are hypnotic. I loved being there because I am nocturnal and always ate late. It's beautiful. The land of figs and olives... except I'm not supposed to have olives. I do on occasion though and they don't seem to be a problem. Such wonderful memories... I bought a tagine while I was there for cooking and use it all the time. I also miss cous cous with preserved lemons, olives and chicken.

Wow - that is one beautiful cookbook. It's very informative, and full of gorgeous photography.

You are in the hands of the acknowledged expert - Paula Wolfert, author of the classic Cous Cous and Mediterranian Cooking.
