Thirty-five years into an illustrious career of restaurant openings across the country, widespread acclaim, and frequent appearances on the Food Network’s Chopped and many other shows, Scott Conant has returned home to create his most personal cookbook yet. Meals cooked from simple, fresh ingredients were staples of Conant’s childhood in a New England family with roots in southern Italy. From his grandparents’ garden to the dinner table, he learned early on to appreciate the nuances of different flavors and ingredients, and the strong connection between food and family.
Focusing on these foods Conant grew up with and the ones he makes for his loved ones today, Peace, Love, and Pasta compiles simple, fresh, and flavorful Italian recipes for the home cook to bring to their own family’s table. These recipes are built on the art of cooking for love, fascination with flavors and ingredients, and the simple pleasures of taste and conviviality.
Italian recipes from the Food Network star that show “you don’t need expensive ingredients or complicated methods to produce delicious food” (The Miami Herald).
In addition to appearances on Chopped and Bravo’s Top Chef, Scott Conant is known for founding Scarpetta—cited on such lists as Esquire’s “Best New Restaurants in America.” The Manhattan eatery, with its Milan-meets-Tuscany style, expanded to Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Toronto—and now this gorgeously illustrated cookbook gives you 125 of the restaurant’s signature dishes.
Creamy Polenta with Fricassee of Truffled Mushrooms, Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil, Fennel-Dusted Black Cod—not only will you find recipes like these, you’ll also learn how to master techniques and gain a deeper understanding of the art of cooking, rather than merely following a set of steps. And as a bonus, you’ll find sidebars about everything from ingredient shopping to tips on entertaining at home.
“Rich in words and flavor, this is a must-have for anyone who wants to know how to cook with passion and taste.” —Marcus Samuelsson, James Beard Award–winning chef
