Gusto Italiano
Quick and Simple Vegetarian Cooking

by Ursula Ferrigno

Gusto Italiano


What's wild about Gusto Italiano? Everything! Dishes that bring the bounty of the land straight to the table. Easy-to-prepare recipes that emphasize the richness and diversity of traditional Italian cuisine. Delicious vegetarian fare that will make readers say "Bravissimo!"

In Gusto Italiano, Ursula Ferrigno creates innovative dishes using healthy seasonal ingredients. Radicchio Lasagna and Spaghetti with Garlic and Chile Oil offer new spins on old favorites. Side dishes such as Sun-Dried Zucchini with Mint and Garlic and Sage and Olive Oil Bread round out the meal. And irresistible desserts such as Warm Plum and Hazelnut Cake and "Ugly but Good" Nutty Meringues provide a fitting finale.

All 125 recipes in Gusto Italiano include nutritional information. Many of them are accompanied by cultural insights and personal anecdotes that illuminate the background of the various dishes. In addition, more than 120 photographs show the food's tantalizing colors and textures as well as rustic scenes of Italy's markets and countryside.

Renowned chef and culinary teacher Ursula Ferrigno learned to cook as a child by watching her grandmother prepare traditional family dishes. A former principal tutor for Cordon Vert, she teaches cooking courses at Books for Cooks in Tuscany and London, as well as Leith's School of Food and Wine in London.
