A Star Writes A Cookbook
The beloved, original restaurant that we know as Scarpetta in New York turned five this year. Since its opening, the acclaimed restaurant has seen immense success and influence in the food scene. Bringing home the tools to make world-class Italian food, Chef Scott Conant’s The Scarpetta Cookbook collects the restaurant’s most memorable dishes. The incredibly sexy black farfalle with lobster is deeply colored by squid ink. Also nuanced with an explosion of flavor is the roasted porchetta. It’s spectacular! Conant recognizes the small window for seasonal ingredients, but guides the way to fresh fare with authority and really specialized knowledge. Written with the same class and elegance demonstrated by the restaurants décor, culture and food, The Scarpetta Cookbook is a must for any Italian food enthusiast. For $35, it’s a steal.
