Cookbook Recommendation: Virgin Territory
How much do you really know about olive oil? As a kitchen essential, and with U.S. shoppers spending more than $700 million annually on this imported specialty, olive oil is often improperly handled prior to reaching our cupboards.
Nancy Harmon Jenkins’s new Virgin Territory sets out to change this. This breathtaking piece of culinary literature takes readers on a globe-trotting tour of the history, science, and, of course, unique and delicate flavors of extra-virgin olive oil. Beautifully showcasing the delights of making and cooking with olive oil, Virgin Territory, shares a fascinating story, without skimping on delicious Mediterranean recipes. With Nancy’s sensational dishes, such as risotto alle erbe and zuppa di aragosta della cantina siciliana, you will find yourself truly inspired.
Equal parts cookbook, autobiography and culinary resource, at $30, this gorgeous book will have you falling even more in love with the classic olive.
