Ahhh, the tantalizing aromas, comforts, and romance of the rustic Italian kitchen! Imagine those wonderful aromas drifting through your home and enticing you and your guests, at your Cucina Comforts Dinner Party! Treat your friends and family to the warm, comforting tastes and aromas of a rustic Italian country kitchen and Italian comfort food.
I make it easy for you. In Cucina Comforts, the third book of my Dinner Parties with Xandra Nash series, I show you how.
You'll be using my authentic Italian menu and recipes. Even if you've never been to Italy in person, you've seen the photos and longed to go. Capturing a part of the charm of Italy, and making it available to delight you and your guests, is what this book is all about. By using my menu and recipes, you'll arrive at deliciously complex flavors with relatively simple ingredients and methods.
In my travels to Italy, I collected recipes from my wonderful Italian hosts. Then I tested them, getting the American measurements and cooking methods exactly right for you.
Dress your table with fresh wildflowers, rustic earthenware, and a colorful tablecloth. Get your ingredients together, invite your friends, and entertain yourself and your guests with the comfort of an authentic rustic Italian kitchen.
