As an avid collector of Italian Regional Cookbooks, this is a favorite selection and a true gem.
 
Micol Negrin, authoress of The Magazine of La Cucina Italiana ( based in Manhattan), was awarded the JAMES BEARD AWARD for her cookbook, Rustico Regional Italian Country Cooking.
She is also operating her own culinary institute in mid - town Manhattan, and catering, event planning, writing, and documenting all her family recipes.
 
 
Micol Negrin - Authoress of Rustico
Regional Italian Country Cooking.
 
 
For enthusiasts of Rustic Italian Country Regional Italian, this is a must in your Library, and a perfect Christmas or Birthday gift.
 
MICOL NEGRIN hosts her own website too; which presents an array of wonderful country backwoods Italian regional cuisine.
 
Available by: www.amazon.com 
 
 
The second choice for all your Carnivores, is The River Cottage Meat Book, which is a wonderment on instructive advice, for example: How to hang game, joint a rabbit and / or marinate venison in red wine. The book is written by:  Fearnley Whittingstall who also provides recipes, including roasting a suckling pig, a breast of lamb and herbed roast chicken. The book possesses wonderful photographs, charts and butcher cuts A to Z and thus, especially useful. www.phaidon.com
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Number 3 is a necessity in your kitchen, if you enjoy preparing traditional Spanish cuisines. Simone and Inés Ortega have published their work for more than 30 years. Chef Ferrán Adriá said: This book is timeless. It has 1,080 recipes in English and / or Spanish. Some of the recipes include: 11 cod fish recipes, Spanish roast lamb, fish specialties, flans, and is a massive authoriative source on Spanish products, including: Navarran Cardoon, and Spanish Omelettes. The series consists of 2 volumes. www.phaidon.com  or  www.amazon.com
 
My next recommendation is a book called The Bacon Book, written by James Villa. This is a volume of more than 100 bacon recipes. He presents his recipes as gustatory seduction that is he, provides an international selection of bacon recipes. www.amazon.com
 
Since Italian, is my paternal heritage, I collect Italian cookbooks. My Italian Garden written by Viana La Place guides us through a family olive garden in Salento, and she prepares a marvelous fennel risotto, and home made truffle oil. The othe prolific authoress is Nancy Harmon, who wrote Cucina del Sole, A Celebration of Southern Italian Cooking. She covers southern Italian regional cuisines;  Puglia, Sicilia, Calabria and Basilicata. Highly suggested. www.amazon.com
 
Enjoy, Happy Holiday Stocking Stuffers.
Margi.
