Coming in May from Stewart, Tabori & Chang: Hazan Family Favorites: Beloved Italian Recipes
Our favorite meals, often set in stone in our youth, have a special resonance both nostalgic and gustatory. For the young Giuliano, those meals were made by master home cooks: his mother Marcella, and grandmothers, Nonna Giulia and Nonna Mary. Hazan Family Favorites celebrates delicious recipes from the entire Hazan family, prepared just as Giuliano prepares them for his own family today.
Rescued from a fifty-six-year-old notebook and taste memories, this book contains the culinary legacy of America’s foremost authority on Italian cooking. Here are 85 recipes for every course in the Italian meal, including Appetizers, Soups, Pastas and Rice, Meats and Seafood, and Sides and Desserts. With recipes from Swiss Chard Tortelloni to Strawberry Gelato to everything in between, Hazan Family Favorites offers an intimate look at this iconic family and their most beloved recipes.
