Availability: Ready to download

As an award-winning chef and the owner of six busy restaurants across two continents, Nancy Silverton was so consumed by her life in the professional kitchen that for years she almost never cooked at home. With her intense focus on the business of cooking, Nancy had forgotten what made her love to cook in the first place: fabulous ingredients at the height of their season, As an award-winning chef and the owner of six busy restaurants across two continents, Nancy Silverton was so consumed by her life in the professional kitchen that for years she almost never cooked at home. With her intense focus on the business of cooking, Nancy had forgotten what made her love to cook in the first place: fabulous ingredients at the height of their season, simple food served family style, and friends and loved ones gathered around the dinner table. Then, on a restorative trip to Italy--with its ripe vegetables, magnificent landscapes, and long summer days--Nancy began to cook for friends and family again, and rediscovered the great pleasures (and great tastes!) of cooking and eating at home. Now, in Mozza at Home, Nancy shares her renewed passion and provides nineteen menus packed with easy-to-follow recipes that can be prepared in advance (with no fancy restaurant equipment needed!) and are perfect for entertaining. Organized by meal, each menu provides a main dish along with a complementary selection of appetizers and side dishes. Under Nancy's guidance you can mix and match all the options depending on the size of your gathering. Make a few sides for a small dinner party with friends, or make them all for a delicious family feast! And don't forget dessert--there's an entire chapter dedicated to end-of-meal treats such as Devil's Food Rings with Spiced White Mountain Frosting and Dario's Olive Oil Cake with Rosemary and Pine Nuts that can be prepared hours before serving so that the host gets to relax during the event too. Whether it's Marinated Olives and Fresh Pecorino and other appetizers that can be put out while you're assembling the rest of the meal . . . salads, such as Endive Salad with Date Anchovy Dressing, composed of sturdy lettuces that won't wilt . . . simple sides, such as Roasted Carrots and Chickpeas with Cumin Vinaigrette, that are just as delicious served at room temperature as they are warm . . . or show-stopping mains such as the Flattened Chicken Thighs with Charred Lemon Salsa Verde--there is something here for everyone and every occasion. With clever tips on how to organize your table and your time when serving many guests, Mozza at Home helps you throw the perfect dinner party--one that's positively stress-free and delicious!

    I love, love, love Nancy Silverton's cookbooks. The recipes are so precise, unlike most other cookbooks. They are mostly very complicated too, but so worthwhile. My only complaint would be more pictures please. I really like to see what the finished recipe is supposed to look like, plus I just like looking at pretty plates of food, OK?

    The good - Love the food - I’ve made about 10 things from this cookbook - which for me makes it a five star book.It’s beautiful LA style food, fresh delightful flavors.The recipes are consistently good. The Bad- The authors lengthily descriptions are tiresome - long and overly descriptive -which I found made the book less kitchen friendly.

    Had the great pleasure of eating from this cookbook at a guest chef's dinner - the food was amazing. I'll likely never make many of these recipes, as I generally cook for one, but I enjoyed the daydream of reading through Silverton's thought process behind the meals.

    "Home" for Mozza/Nancy Silverton means a small medieval hill town on the Umbria-Tuscany border, as well as a house in LA with an outdoor fireplace to cook in where she entertains friends under a wisteria-covered pergola. This book is a collection of recipes that reflects that style, and therefore already sets me a distance from them. Not connecting to this sense of home--but Sal's Roasted Pork Shoulder (altho the ingredients say Butt) sounds pretty kick-ass!

    I didn't find a lot of recipes here that I would try. Too many ingredients, not common to find in American grocery stores. Long lists of ingredients. Lengthy cooking procedures. Family food means that I get to enjoy too. I didn't find a lot of recipes here that I would try. Too many ingredients, not common to find in American grocery stores. Long lists of ingredients.

    Excellent! Love I love reading Nancy's cookbooks. And I do read them cover to cover. Her engaging back-stories are always my favorite part of the recipe and she includes so many details that you can't fail to get it right. Brava Nancy! Excellent!

    Fat, frying, salt or sugar. That is about all. Recipes one might get from online much faster.

    It is an interesting, well written book. That's said, I wouldn't cook from it. It is an interesting, well written book. That's said, I wouldn't cook from it.
