CIA releases traditional Italian cookbook

In celebration of the Italian love of food and family, The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in August released A Tavola! Recipes and Reflections on Traditional Italian Home Cooking, by Gianni Scappin and Vincenzo Lauria.

A Tavola!, from publisher Lebhar-Friedman, is a compilation of the authors' favorite recipes from several regions of Italy, inspiration from their experience in U.S. restaurant kitchens and food they have tasted in their travels. Chapters cover such topics as small dishes, soups, pizzas, breads, polenta, pasta, main dishes, desserts and aperitifs. For more information visit www.ciachef.edu.
