Synopsis

Synopsis

DEBI MAZAR and GABRIELE CORCOS are ambassadors of contemporary Tuscan cooking. In Extra Virgin, food, family, and style come together in a celebration of the pleasures of the rustic Italian table with 120 recipes for simple yet exquisite meals that are accessible, full of fresh flavor, and easy to prepare. Gabriele is a traditional Italian with a big heart, and Debi is an outgoing, brash New York City girl. Their sassy and playful exchanges illuminate what’s important in everyday life: good food and a lot of love.

Ranging from traditional antipasti and soups to their spin on entrees, pizzas, and desserts, recipes include Pecorino and Honey Dip, a sweet and salty way to start a meal; tangy, luscious Grilled Apricots with Goat Cheese Ricotta, inspired by wild Tuscan apricot trees; and Sausage and Beans, which offers hints of fennel in a Tuscan red sauce. Here, too, are Braised Artichokes softened in guanciale-infused oil, Breakfast Pizza, and Coffee Granita just as Italians make it.

So flag these recipes, get sauce on them, let splashes of olive oil mark the pages—and invite Debi and Gabriele’s charisma and passion for cooking to spill into your kitchen.

"Gabriele and Debi create rustic Italian food the way I like it: cooked at home for family and friends. Like vinegar and oil, Gabriele and Debi are brilliant opposites and everything they touch is better and more delicious." —MARIO BATALI

Extra Virgin is a terrific book. I want to eat at Gabriele and Debi's house. Now.” —ANTHONY BOURDAIN

“Debi and Gabriele's Extra Virgin makes me yearn for the flavors of Italy. Amazing pastas, sun ripened salads, and savory dishes from the grill and the oven. Angry Lobster pasta, please.” —BOBBY FLAY
