Marcella believes that those cooks with the best intentions create the most enjoyable and memorable meals. Marcella Says… is yet another collection of fine recipes laid out in Marcella’s trademark thoroughness and personal tone. Created from Marcella’s home in Florida using mainly ingredients from her local Publix grocery store, this is a brand new batch of recipes and her most accessible collection yet.
These dishes shine in their simplicity, both in the combination of ingredients and their preparation. Late-Night Pasta Sauce with Pine Nuts and Raisins; Braised Beef with Vegetables, Red Wine, and Thyme; Veal Shanks with Lemon; Apple Cake with Raisins and Rum. Her “Marcella says” sidebars offer suggestions and tidbits of wisdom in a conversational tone that enhance the recipe instructions and provide her own personal experiences and expertise, though not too often as to be distracting or to confuse.
Marcella has a wealth of experience and good cooking sense, making her a natural teacher. Simple, true Italian cooking that any cook can prepare and everyone will enjoy, from the prima donna of Italian cooking. Another classic from a legendary teacher.
