Piatti: Plates and Platters for Sharing, Inspired by Italy
by Stacy Adimando with Photography by Linda Pugliese
The Executive Editor of SAVEUR magazine, author Stacy Adimando draws from her Italian heritage and her love of Italy's traditional abundant antipasti spreads to create 75 recipes for easy, generous plates and platters meant for grazing and sharing. Organized by season and ranging in size from bites--such as Stuffed Mussels with Bacon and Garlic Breadcrumbs, Baby Root Vegetables with Vinaigrette, and Prosciutto and Pecorino Biscuits--to larger platters, like Baked Squash with Chile Oil and Crispy Seeds, Thinly Sliced Tuscan Pork Loin, and White Clam Pizzas with Scallion and Bacon, these are generous dishes to serve to family and friends for gatherings of any kind. Filled with advice on how to easily plate and serve 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.
