Learn to make rustic-yet-elevated Italian cuisine with The Scarpetta Cookbook by Scott Conant, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Cookbooks

The Scarpetta Cookbook
By Scott Conant 
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013)

While this list is populated by many timeless and revolutionary exemplars, we also wanted to include a more recent work from a talented chef who's been making culinary waves from NYC to Beverly Hills to Miami. Scott Conant of Scarpetta fame has penned a beautiful ode to his rustic-yet-elevated Italian cuisine. The Scarpetta Cookbook features 125 approachable recipes, from his famous Stromboli bread to a classic Scarpetta Spaghetti with tomato sauce to Sicilian spiced duck, as well as cooking techniques (e.g. making pasta) amateurs can implement in the comfort of their own kitchens.
