ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: New York Post, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Food52, Epicurious, Taste of Home - "Every bit of warmth and hospitality that you feel when you walk into Don Angie pours out of every page of this magical book."--Michael Symon The words "red sauce" alone conjure images of an Italian-American table full of antipasti, both hot and cold, whisked off to make room for decadent baked pastas topped with molten cheese, all before a procession of chicken parm or pork chops all pizzaiola--and we haven't even gotten to dessert. It's old-school cooking beloved by many and imbued with a deep sense of family. In Italian American, Angie Rito and Scott Tacinelli, the chefs of critically acclaimed Don Angie in New York City's West Village, reinvigorate the genre with a modern point of view that proudly straddles the line between Italian and American. They present family classics passed down through generations side-by-side with creative spins and riffs inspired by influences both old and new. These comforting dishes feel familiar but are far from expected, including their signature pinwheel lasagna, ribs glazed with orange and Campari, saucy shrimp parm meatballs, and a cheesy, bubbling gratin of broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Full of family history and recipes that will inspire a new generation, Italian American provides an essential, spirited introduction to an unforgettable way of cooking.

    A few challenging recipes, but I enjoyed the family histories behind them and was inspired to make a few, with success! I loved the pasta Gemma. This book has been circulating around the library so I will pick it up again to try out more when it's returned.

    The authors of this cookbook are the husband-and-wife team of the New York Michelin-starred restaurant Don Angie. Since I'll never make it to that restaurant, this a a great substitute: to prepare these creative recipes, some classic, some modern. Lots of comfort food here, like Cacio e Pepe Pastina, Layered Eggplant Parm, and Classic Meatballs. These three recipes are ones I have tried thus far, and they were all amazing and welcomed by my family.

(Ginger and Lemon Ricotta Cookies, anyone?!) The photographs are fabulous, especially the ones that show how to perform specific techniques. This is a great gift to give any home cook.

    What a wonderful cookbook filled with family stories, family recipes and mouth-watering pictures. The layered eggplant parm recipe was one of the best I have ever made, a big hit with all of my family members. I never knew there were so many different types of meatballs and this cookbook contains 10 different recipes with the Veal Picccata Meatballs being my favorite so far. I can't wait to try them all. I am married to an Italian and he has loved all of the recipes I have tried so far. This coo What a wonderful cookbook filled with family stories, family recipes and mouth-watering pictures.

    Dynamic duo taking Italian Food beyond comfort zone ! When I got my hands on Italian American I knew it's going to take place in my bookshelf and also my heart. I’ve known about Don Angie through the media,but never knew they would launch a book as beautiful as this ! It's a comfort food heaven !! Like many Italians they hold family ties through food and the family history is so beautiful to read. The book spans from cold antipasti(Shrimp cocktail alla puttanesca to pepperoni & fontina crackers) Dynamic duo taking Italian Food beyond comfort zone ! When I got my hands on Italian American I knew it's going to take place in my bookshelf and also my heart. I’ve known about Don Angie through the media,but never knew they would launch a book as beautiful as this ! It's a comfort food heaven !! Like many Italians they hold family ties through food and the family history is so beautiful to read. The book spans from cold antipasti(Shrimp cocktail alla puttanesca to pepperoni & fontina crackers) and hot antipasti(Sicilian pizza rolls;oh sounds so delicious:step by step photos are incredible to look at.Spicy baked clams look so amazing!). Then the next chapters pave the way to salads. Spicy crab panzanella looks like a festivity of its own ! Italian sauces are the arsenal of their hearty pasta dishes. This book’s sauces chapter is second to none ! Smoky chicken ragu with Mezcal,chiles and olives looks like a great one tray bake. Next rolls the pasta chapter loaded with recipes like cacio e pepe pastina,beautiful Southern style eggless pasta, and polenta gnocchi. Lasagna and baked pasta chapter is definitely party ready ! Show stopper is Don Angie pinwheel pasta(cover picture). Sausage stuffed rigatoni is a feat of its own ! Next is my favorite chapter:Meatballs ! So many delicious and juicy meatballs to choose from ! Main dishes like eggplant parm,chicken parm,and the magnificent Easter pie comes in the following pages. Vegetables are standing up to their glorious self and dishes like Sicilian style roasted cauliflower mushrooms in gorgonzola cream sauce look divine. Desserts sections roll out with beautiful pictures of cannolis and they look like gem studded gold batons. Ginger lemon ricotta cookies look like they are al2ays ready for Christmas. Cannoli recipes are packed with step by step photographs. They have given the classic Italian Tiramisu an exuberant facelift by switching it to Vietnamese style ! I cannot pick a favorite from the drinks section and I want to try them all one day in the cafe itself ! Last chapter;the basics are this and that and what nots about little stuff; like making Italian bread crumbs, chicken stock,oven dried tomatoes,lemon aioli. This book is like the USA. It gives everything traditional ,a beautiful magnificent look while tasting better than what it used to be before. I’ve received a free copy from Ten Speed in exchange for a free and unbiased review. Thank you.

    A book I have been waiting for since I tasted the best lasagna in the world! I love the West Village in New York City. It is brimming with restaurants, eateries, and cafés, but few as polished and delicious as Don Angie. That the restaurant’s owners are now sharing some of their amazing recipes for all home cooks is remarkable. Thank you, Scott and Angie!

Martha Stewart Scott and Angie have honored their Italian-American roots, Southern Italian flavors, family traditions, and experimented with new ingredients in such a beautiful way. Their ancestors redefined and created a new type of cuisine when they came to America, which is exactly what Scott and Angie are doing today. Jean-Georges Vongerichten

    Quite honestly one of the best cookbooks that I've ever read/cooked from! Every single recipe that I've made to date has been an absolute 5 star meal (Sausage Stuffed Rigatoni - just "oh my!"). I could only cook from this book the rest of my life and be quite happy -- and full! Quite honestly one of the best cookbooks that I've ever read/cooked from!

    I got a couple of good recipes that I haven't tried yet from this book. I copied them and will try them later. The book had to be returned. I got a couple of good recipes that I haven't tried yet from this book. I copied them and will try them later. The book had to be returned.
