There is little need to summarize the content of the book, as the title pretty much tells the story. You also should believe the statement on the cover that these are `home recipes' and not the kind of recipe Tom Valenti typically makes at his restaurants, or, at the very least, he does not make them in the same way at his restaurants.
The cover says there are 125 recipes which, on the face of it is a tad thin for the $30 tariff. These are broken down by:
Hearty soups and chowders: 18 including classics such as `pasta fazool', clam chowder, and lobster bisque
Casseroles, stews, and chilis: 28 including risottos, fish stews, sausage and cabbage stew, and venison chili
Large Cuts and catches: 29 including leg of lamb, beef brisket, pork shank, and hunter style chicken
Accompaniments and additions: 10 including pastas, rice, potatoes and polenta
Condiments and Garnishes: 9 including pesto, aioli, roasted tomatoes, and croutons
Oops, that is only 94. The remaining recipes are variations on main recipes plus recipes for chicken and beef stocks. Since almost recipe in the first three chapters has one or more variations, the effective total may be closer to 200. The bottom line is that these 94 basic recipes are worth the higher toll than you may find in some other books.Read more ›
