When Marcella Hazan died in 2013, the world mourned the passing of the "Godmother of Italian cooking." But her legacy lives on, through her cookbooks and recipes, and in the handwritten notebooks filled with her thoughts on how to select the best ingredients-Ingredienti. Her husband and longtime collaborator Victor has translated and transcribed these vignettes on how to buy and what to do with the fresh produce used in Italian cooking, the elements of an essential pantry, and salumi.
Before you know how to cook, you must know how to shop. From Artichokes to Zucchini, Anchovies to Ziti, Ingredienti offers succinct and compelling advice on how to choose vegetables, pasta, olive oil, Parmigiano Reggiano, prosciutto, and all of the key elements of Marcella's classic meals. Organic isn't necessarily best, boxed pasta can be better than fresh. Marcella's authoritative wisdom and surprising tips will change the way you cook.

"Cookbook author Hazan is well known for introducing everyday Italian cooking to America. Her final work is an A-to-Z guide to buying, storing, and using her favorite ingredients--all spiced up with personal stories. The audiobook is beautifully narrated by Elizabeth Wiley, who captures Hazan's culinary passion. Not only is Wiley's Italian accent believable but she also portrays Hazan's vivacious personality. Although the audiobook contains a lot of factual information about such things as which herbs are better dried than fresh, Wiley's performance is consistently dynamic and engaging. Listeners who'd like to incorporate Hazan's tips and techniques into their own kitchens may want to augment the audiobook with a print edition. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
