Vegetables from an Italian Garden

We love Phaidon's new cookbook which is a seasonal celebration of the vegetable garden. Whether you grow your own or buy them at the market, the tips on preparing seasonal dishes and delicious recipes makes this a "must-have" for your cookbook collection. Fall favorites with an Italian flavor are pumpkin flan with pine nuts, roasted chestnuts + brussel sprouts, risotto with white truffles + parmesan.
At our on-line shop, $39.95.
