On his hit Cooking Channel show David Rocco’s Dolce Vita, David and his wife, Nina, travel around Italy, exploring the very best foods of every region, making friends wherever they go. From his modern flat in Florence to the lemon groves of the Amalfi coast, David shares recipes for the local favorites he encounters, including a refreshing Caprese salad with avocado, weeknight chicken breasts with fragrant rosemary and chili flakes, a Sunday meat stew flavored with tomatoes and red wine, and the easy apple-yogurt cake he prepares with his twin daughters.
Made in Italy features 140 simple, rustic Italian dishes that any home cook can accomplish—all with David’s signature style. With photographs of gorgeous food and sweeping images of the Italian countryside, this book will inspire cooks across America to bring Italy to life in their own homes.
I loved David Rocco's first cookbook Dolce Vita so I had to buy this one too. There are a lot of great, easy recipes in here and the photography is more gorgeous than ever. Some favourites for me are the pizza recipes including an easy thin crust dough, the Zabaglione Con Frutti di Bosco desert which is fresh berries topped with a delicious warm espresso sauce and the hand made pasta. Some of the measurements are less clear than in his previous book, which I found a minor hassle but aside from that I love this cookbook!
