Summary

“If you’re obsessed with gnocchi and all of it’s easy-to-make relative shapes, there’s no better book on the market.” —Epicurious   Pasta is the ultimate comfort food, and making it by hand is a favorite project for weekend cooks. From rising culinary star and 2012 Food & Wine Best New Chef Jenn Louis, this book includes more than sixty-five recipes for hand-shaped traditional pastas and dumplings, along with deeply satisfying sauces to mix and match. Louis shares her recipes and expertise in hand-forming beloved shapes such as gnocchi, orecchiette, gnudi, and spatzli as well as dozens of other regional pasta specialties appearing for the first time in an English-language cookbook. With photos of finished dishes and step-by-step shaping sequences, this beautiful book is perfect for DIY cooks and lovers of Italian food.  “The luxurious sauce recipes in the last chapter are worth the price of admission alone and feature traditional ragús of lamb, rabbit, porcini, tomato, beef, and wild boar. This single-focus cookbook is written with both authority and a passion for ‘some of the most soulful Italian food we can eat.’” —Publishers Weekly  “With passion and authenticity, Jenn Louis has captured the diversity of the regional pastas, from Trentino-Alto Adige, down to Puglia, and over to Sardinia. This book is a must-read for anyone looking to learn about true Italian food and culture.” —Marc Vetri, award-winning chef of Vetri Family restaurants  “She’s gone to the source and rubbed floury elbows with nonnas and professional cooks alike, and then written the Italian dumpling gospel. What a delightful—and important—primer she’s given us!” —Julia Della Croce, author of The Pasta Book

    This beautifully illustrated guide by the author of Japanese Farm Food includes essential Japanese pantry tips and 125 recipes.  
     
    In Preserving the Japanese Way, Nancy Singleton Hachisu offers step-by-step instructions for preserving fruits, vegetables, and fish using the age-old methods of Japanese farmers and fishermen. The recipes feature ingredients easily found in grocery stores or Asian food markets, such as soy sauce, rice vinegar, sake, and koji.  
     
    Recipes range from the ultratraditional— Umeboshi (Salted Sour Plums), Takuan (Half-Dried Daikon Pickled in Rice Bran), and Hakusai (Fermented Napa Cabbage)— to modern creations like Zucchini Pickled in Shoyu Koji, Turnips Pickled with Sour Plums, and Small Melons in Sake Lees.  
     
    Hundreds of full-color photos offer a window into the culinary life of Japan, from barrel makers and fish sauce producers to traditional morning pickle markets. More than a simple recipe book, Preserving the Japanese Way is a book about community, seasonality, and ultimately about why both are relevant in our lives today. 
     
    “This is a gorgeous, thoughtful—dare I say spiritual—guide to the world of Japanese pickling written with clarity and a deep respect for technique and tradition.” —Rick Bayless, author of Authentic Mexican and owner of Frontera Grill
