Family-Style Favorites from Coast to Coast

An homage to the generous, gutsy, red-sauced family-style cooking born in Italian-American kitchens from coast to coast, with tested-to-perfection recipes that bring the best of the best to your table. This is food we never tire of—simple, hearty weeknight meals, baked pastas and roasts fit for Sunday dinner, and a baker’s assortment of rustic breads and sweets (we’ve even coaxed some heirloom recipes from the families behind landmark restaurants). What you cook with matters. So what’s the best olive oil, spaghetti, canned tomatoes, jarred sauce, or mozzarella? Eliminate the guesswork and save time and money with our list of blind taste test winners.

"You get a healthy dose of history along with all the great recipes."
