Famed chef Valentina Harris returns with a delicious follow-up to her popular Risotto! Risotto! This time she’s taking the good eats outdoors, focusing on al fresco dining and entertaining. From Spaghetti al Cartoccio to Stuffed Swordfish Rolls to Polenta Verde, the recipes are scrumptious. Savor a selection of starters and antipasti, including cold soups and crostini that will whet your appetite for the barbecue to come. Grill up a banquet of fish and meat, and even slow-roast some to perfection in the very heart of the fire. Season fresh, crispy vegetables with herbs, garlic, and olive oil, and grill. Whip up Italian summer salads that are just right for an impromptu picnic. And don’t forget to finish off the feast with tarts, puddings, and irresistable gelati. Every dish celebrates the pleasure and art of cooking outdoors.
