Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Thanks to repeated best-selling memoirs, travel books, and blockbuster movies, Tuscany has become Italy's most celebrated province. Even though other regions have arguably better-known cheeses, tomatoes, and pastas, Tuscany's olive oil has become the country's export standard. Now public television has devoted a cooking series to Cucina Toscana with the uncle-nephew team of Carrabba and Mandola. They squire viewers through Tuscany's incomparable vistas and sophisticated dining to reveal their take on the region's cuisine. The chefs pay homage to the coast's bounty of seafood, especially its shellfish--mussels, oysters, scallops, and shrimp. Fresh vegetables take center stage, both in black cabbage soup and in a dish of fresh egg noodles with a melange of fresh chopped vegetables. Rabbit and duck both serve as bases for fragrantly spiced pasta sauces. Florentine steak marinates in the region's olive oil. Long-stewed leeks and onions make a sweet sauce for pork balanced with several vinegars. Classic Florentine cakes comprise most of the dessert offerings. Mark Knoblauch

I have made serveral of the recipes in the book and each one tasted like I was back in Tuscany. Both cooks have been to Tuscany and found many great dishes and put them together in this cook book. If you want to cook like they do in Tuscany, then I would recommend this book to you.

Their TV show is great too. Both of them love food, Tuscany, and are very funny too.

I love to eat, used to love eating at Carrabbas. They have become to concerned with profit and not with customer satisfaction. These cook books are a good way to have some awesome food at home without worrying about the cooks using some cheap nasty wine or lower grade of meat, buy what you want and cook it at home.
