About this book
Tasty, colorful, and loaded with flavor, Gennaro's Verdure highlights the versatility of vegetables in various, delicious recipes.
This brand-new cookbook from Gennaro Contaldo is 6th with long-time US publishing home, Interlink Books. In Gennaro’s Verdure, beloved Italian chef, Gennaro Contaldo transforms humble vegetables from side dish material into the hero of the plate, using punchy flavors from staple ingredients.
Structured by color, in chapters that group recipes into vegetable families, Gennaro champions their versatility and breaks the common misconception that veggies lack in texture and flavor. From Beet Carpaccio to Pea Souffle, Asparagus Carbonara, Tomato Sorbet, and Spinach “plumcake”; Gennaro maximizes the star-quality potential of the unassuming veggies that sit at the back of our fridge.
Not all recipes are entirely plant-based, but all include plants. These are innovative meals with an Italian touch; uncompromising in flavor and more than sufficient for hungry flexitarians, vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike.Brand: Gennaro Contaldo
“Proper, old-school classics to use up every scrap” —Jamie Oliver
“The Amalfi Coast is known for extra-sweet, thick-skinned lemons, and native Contaldo digs into the area’s flavor in a collection as bright and cheerful as its subject … Whether codifying the 17-day process for crafting limoncello or explaining how friends at a hometown pastry shop candy citrus peel, Contaldo evokes joy.” —Publishers Weekly on Gennaro’s Limoni
“With each recipe, Contaldo brings joy and dazzlement.” —Publishers Weekly on Panetteria
“What a fantastic book – delicious Italian food, fast.” —Jamie Oliver on Gennaro’s Fast Cook Italian
“‘[An] excellent cookbook … fun to read …This delightful cookbook will educate and inspire.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Gennaro’s Pasta Perfecto!
“Italian master-chef Contaldo, who famously taught Jamie Oliver to cook Italian, recounts his childhood in exquisite detail, matching his recollections to the subject on point … Artfully arranged photographs and some well-worn and much-needed tips round out what will soon be an oft-referred-to classic.” —Booklist (starred review) on Passione
