Italian snacking

sweet and savory recipes for every hour of the day
Anna Francese Gass
Book - 2024

Italian food has captivated our taste buds for centuries. Combining simplicity and creativity, it enchants with an alchemy of high-quality ingredients, recipes tied to the specialties of each region, and the experience of being at the table. There is an entire category of smaller bites--spuntini--meant to be enjoyed at in-between-meal moments of the day. This snack cookbook by Italian food expert Anna Francese Gass introduces the American audience to the complete range of spuntini culture, with recipes drawn from all across the country. She shares recipes for spuntini di meta mattina (mid-morning snacks often enjoyed with a second--or third--coffee); merenda, the cherished after-school treat for children (that also offers adults a way to stave off hunger before dinner); and aperitivi, delightful early-evening Italian appetizers meant to be enjoyed with drinks. Also included is a chapter of delicacies from Italy's robust culture of street food (the one instance where Italians might eat on the go). Studded with gorgeous photography of both finished dishes and Italian food markets, cafes, bars, and pasticcerie, this book will elevate your snacking game to the Italian ideal.
