Sometimes you just want to throw everything into a pan to make a quick and easy casserole. Maybe Nabisco Triscuits? I have a box of those. In the end, I leave out the crackers altogether. I would if I had them substitute fresh red bell peppers for the canned Dromedary Pimientos. I covered pimientos in my post on the Encyclopedia of Cookery , Vol. Here is a quote from me:. It is interesting that red bell peppers are actually green bell peppers that have reached a further state of maturity. The pimiento variety of bell peppers are heart-shaped and very sweet.
You can find them canned in the markets, often in small glass jars. I usually substitute fresh red bell peppers for pimientos in recipes. Tuna these days comes in 4- to 5-ounce cans at least that is what I had in my cupboard , so I down-sized this recipe. Combine the tuna, cream cheese, mayonnaise, pickles, red pepper, and pepper. To serve, place a mound of tuna mixture on a cucumber slice.
It would be good with crackers beneath the cucumbers too, but I left those out. We enjoyed these. In fact, it was our low-carb lunch on a picnic with our grandson to Meadow Park in Lyons. Translated by Maria Langdale and Ursula Whyte. Why the question mark. Kids today no longer need to learn those rules in school, I guess. We were living in our trailer in Boulder at that time — opening this book brings back memories. But have I ever used this book?
It is a lovely book to page through, with full page glossy photos of regions in Italy. We have always loved Italian food, and I love to cook, so it was in theory a perfect gift. I looked up Italian Regional Cooking online. It is still for sale as a used book; I do not see a newer edition. On thriftbooks. I learn from them that this tome is considered a classic Italian cookbook, kept for years by families and cooks alike for its authentic Italian recipes. Readers of this book who had traveled to Italy write that it reflects accurately the cooking of the regions of Italy in the s.
I take Italian Regional Cooking and settle in a comfy chair and begin to read, to learn what book I hold in my hands, and to wonder why I have never embraced it as a favorite cookbook. Here are the first paragraphs in Italian Regional Cooking :. To me, this is an abrupt beginning. It had me looking on the previous page, to see if I missed something.
And I looked for an introduction to this book, but, there is none. I continue through the Piedmont region. The print at the beginning, informative part of the chapter is in a large font, accompanied by glossy pages of photos. Like this one:. I see what might have turned me off about this book: the dead rabbit staring at me from a stick placed above a plate of its cooked bunny friends. And the handsome dead birds on the table. Ironic, since the friends who gave us this book were vegetarians. After these written and photographic descriptions of the Piedmont region are several pages of recipes.
These are printed on rough, grey paper in a smaller font. Bolded recipe titles are in Italian, with the italicized English translation beneath. Here is an example. Recipes for gnocchi two types, and made from scratch , rarebit learned about in my Encyclopedia of Cooking , fondue, and polenta. Here is another example of recipes in the Piedmont chapter. I come to the second chapter, on the region of Lombardy. This time, I look forward to the informative first pages:. Now I begin to appreciate that Ada Boni is starting each chapter with an interesting story.
I look up the Certosa, the great Charterhouse of Pavia. Saffron colors many of the dishes of the Lombardy region. When we traveled to Turkey, I bought some saffron at the Spice Bazaar.

It was adopted as a culinary ingredient to color food a gold color:. I turn to the third chapter, the region of Veneto. Ida Boni tells the story of how corn came to Italy.
To this day, polenta, made from corn, is a popular dish in the region of Veneto. And polenta, as a grain or pre-cooked, is easily available in our local supermarkets. Even I have served it as part of an Italian meal. The recipes in the Veneto chapter include polenta recipes, recipes for noodles from scratch, and recipes that call for ham, duck, mutton, chicken, pork sausage, shellfish, beef, lamb, pigeon, rice, liver, tripe, cod, guinea fowl, turkey, snails, eel, and a variety of vegetables. Here is a recipe for pesto:. I find a recipe for zabaglione, mentioned in my Encyclopedia of Cookery Volume I turn the pages and enjoy new stories, and more wonderful photos of the regions of Italy.
It is a very good read. The recipes? I now have the time and ability to make my own pasta, so eventually I may try a few of the harder dishes. But now I have traveled to Turkey, near Italy, and have savored the very fresh vegetables and seafood ubiquitous to that country. I have made my own pasta, and learned how to make a very good tomato sauce. I have cooked polenta, and used saffron. I can appreciate that this book reflects older Italian cooking, now often overtaken by convenience foods in the current busy cultures.
Note: I covered I talian Light Cooking a couple years ago. That is what this book is all about too. This is a simple soup, just meat balls and noodles in broth. The only herb is parsley. As I was preparing it, I had to keep my hand from grabbing my usual Italian spices, like oregano, basil, and thyme. I also had to stop from adding vegetables to this soup, like carrots, celery, and onions. Oh — at the last minute I added about 3 tablespoons tomato sauce.
Tagliatelle noodles are similar to fettuccine noodles; if possible, find flat noodles about. Mix the meat, egg, 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, parsley, garlic, and salt and pepper in a bowl. I used a mini food processor to make the bread crumbs and chop the parsley and garlic. Knead until smooth, then break into pieces and roll into balls about the size of a hazelnut. Bring the stock to a boil. Add the meatballs and cook about 5 minutes. Add the noodles and cook until the noodles are tender but still firm.
Serve immediately with plenty of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. This was a very thick and very filling soup. It was good, but actually too much for the two of us. Some have good recipes, and some not-so-good recipes, but they reflect Americana of late twentieth century USA.
Because I can find only 4 recipes in 80 pages of recipes that do not call for pre-packaged convenience foods. What are these products? I want very few foods in my diet that come in packages with long lists of chemical ingredients. As I go through this booklet, I note that even my mother did not mark as tried a single recipe in this book! A side benefit is that these spice bars would be a good way to use up fresh apples maybe those partially chewed on by a certain grandson!
The fresh apples, cheese, nuts, and coconut in this recipe are all on our approved list of foods. Note that there is no butter or shortening in the recipe. The sugar? A no-no for us. Combine the brown sugar and eggs, mix well. Stir in apples. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, add to the sugar and egg mixture and stir only until the ingredients are just mixed. Stir in the cheese, nuts, and coconut. Cookbook Encyclopedia of Cookery, Vol. I open the volume and settle in to another discovery of unusual food items and historical trivia. As well as some useful recipes, of course.
Encyclopedia of Cookery, Vol. A very, very useful feature is in this volume: the complete recipe index for volumes 1 to This page index takes up almost half the book. It is invaluable to search the entire set for foods and recipes. I feel lucky to have the entire, intact set. What is a torte? It is a rich cake, made with eggs, sugar, jam, liqueur, very little flour, and nuts or dry bread crumbs. Often a luscious filling is spread between cake-like layers.
Tortoni is an Italian dessert made from liquor- or sherry-flavored whipped cream combined with macaroon crumbs. The mixture is put into little paper cups, sprinkled with crumbs and almonds, and frozen.
Spring Salad & Lemon Balm
I actually bought it once years ago. But I do like trout, especially the rainbow trout we get in Colorado, and especially if very fresh and wild-caught. I am not a fisherwoman. Although there are photos of me when young with a fishing pole, happily catching fish in the High Sierras. And now from truffles to the lowly can of tuna. I love potato chips on tuna sandwiches. Turkeys are native to America. They were domesticated by native Americans. Here is Ben Franklin talking about bald eagles and turkeys:. The Turkey Cook Book might be useful because it has a lot of recipes for using leftover turkey.
Next come turmeric, turnip, and turnovers. Oh, turtle soup! And if I want to know how to dress a live turtle:. Vanilla is from a plant related to orchids. And boy, has vanilla gotten expensive lately! I just bought a small bottle yesterday for nineteen dollars!

I am not a fan of veal, but this Encyclopedia has a Veal Cook Book. James Beard wrote the section on Vegetable Cookery. Gratin of Greens is suitable for a no-carb diet, and Tangerine Swirls is an interesting take on sweet potatoes. It has lots of cream in it and is served cold.
While traveling in Paris and London, sometimes there was a bottle of oil and a bottle of vinegar at the table, meant for salads. My vinaigrette recipe is here. Vinegar itself has a long history, stretching back thousands of years. Yeast fell into fruit juice and it turned into wine, and bacteria fell into wine and turned it to vinegar.
As a chemist, I know vinegar as containing acetic acid and water. Vitamin, vodka, vol-au-lent a puff pastry formed into an enormous patty shell. Watercress, watermelon, and welsh rabbit or rarebit melted cheese on toast, often with beer or wine added to the rabbit. Yay for California for starting this trend! Apparently you could still find whale meat at online specialty shops in the s and maybe online today. Wild rice is a native American grass that is not directly related to Asian rice. The wine entry takes up many pages. I skip them. Worcestershire sauce contains garlic, soy, vinegar, anchovies, tamarinds, onions, shallots, molasses, sugar, salt, and spices.

There are a few varieties of moist-fleshed yams grown our country. Mostly, though, we see sweet potatoes. Yorkshire pudding is a savory British dish made by baking a batter of egg, milk, and flour in beef drippings. Zabaglione is an Italian dessert of eggs, sugar, and wine, and zeppole is an Italian doughnutlike pastry. Yes, I guess doughnutlike is a word, according to Wiktionary. Zucchini also comes from Italy. And the last entry, on page of the entire Encyclopedia of Cooking volumes, is zwieback.
I like this salad for several reasons. I love toasted walnuts in salads. I like Parmesan cheese too, especially when it is freshly grated from a chunk of Parmigiano Reggiano. I like the fact that you make a special salad dressing, just enough for this salad. I am sure I used a lot more salad greens than one cup per person, though. I like my salads. The directions are very clear and I also checked out the author's website which is great. I'm definitely going to check out the other cookbooks as well.
A well done book and I can't wait to get started with the recipes. Soups and Italian food are two of my favorite things so I could not pass up this book. It is really a wonderful soup book.
