Plates and platters for sharing, inspired by Italy
Stacy Adimando, Linda Pugliese
Executive editor of Saveur Stacy Adimando combines her Italian heritage and tradition of serving abundant spreads to create 75 recipes for generous plates and platters meant for grazing. Organized by season and ranging in size from starting bites, such as Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Leeks with Honey Glaze and Shaved Fennel Salad with Sweet Peas and Avocado, to main courses, such as Crispy Pork Ribs with Herb Sauce and Seared Shrimp with Braised Savoy Cabbage, these are generous dishes to serve to family and friends for gatherings large and small. Filled with advice on how to plate and pair dishes for a range of occasions, this visually stunning book, with distinctive binding featuring a partially exposed spine, imparts what many cooks of Italy seem born knowing: the secrets to pulling off an impressive feast, without formality or fussiness, but with love, ease, and elegance.
