The Puglian Cookbook Summary

The Puglian Cookbook: Bringing the Flavors of Puglia Home by Viktorija Todorovska

The cuisine of Puglia is famous for being among the best in Italy. Puglian food is deeply rooted in the traditions of this southern Italian region, its geography, and its history as the breadbasket of Italy and the largest producer of olive oil. In this cookbook, beautifully illustrated with recipe and preparation photos as well as images from Puglia itself, first-time author Viktorija Todorovska (a Chicagoan who studied cooking at the famed Florentince culinary school Apicius) has created a memorable introduction to this unsung cuisine. Puglian cooking's two great benefits are of huge interest today: it's very simple, usually requiring little technique and basic prepartion, and it's incredibly healthful, as it's based largely on olive oil and fresh vegetables. Puglian cooking as Todorovska present it here respects the integrity and quality of the ingredients, which should be as fresh high quality as possible. The recipes in this cookbook are simple, the ingredients easy to find, and the dishes bursting of flavor. These are healthful, easy to prepare dishes that should appeal to everyone.

The Puglian Cookbook Reviews

"We love that before cranking up the heat at the stove, Todorovska pauses to make sure we have a deep understanding of the ingredients that are the fundamentals of Puglian cuisine. She writes for the home cook, with no fancy tricks, no hard-to-find ingredients." --Chicago Tribune "For those who want a taste of excellent, yet different Italian cooking, The Puglian Cookbook is not to be missed." --Midwest Book Review "The region's flavorful cucina povera (peasant cuisine) is the subject of The Puglian Cookbook, a new book from Chicago-based Viktorija Todorovska, a passionate ambassador of the oft-overlooked area. Of Amazon.com's nearly 100,000 cookbooks, hers is one of only three focusing on Puglian cooking, and it catalogs the area's legume-, vegetable- and tomato-heavy dishes with great enthusiasm." --Tasting Table "The Puglian Cookbook: Bringing the Flavors of Puglia Home, paints a vivid picture of the region and its culinary traditions." --WBEZ-FM, Chicago Public Media "This is the kind of book you picture well-worn and loved, spattered with olive oil and maybe some tomato sauce. A cookbook that won't leave the kitchen." --Marcia Crawford, Nutrition Minute "...a 157-page collection of the essentials of Pugliese cooking, with recipes ranging from a tomato-topped flatbread known as puddica to baked squid stuffed with cheese, breadcrumbs, and capers to the potato, rice, and mussel casserole tiella." --Mike Sula, Chicago Reader "Arrivederci fast foods and trans fats! Viktorija Todorovska...[is] bringing the foreign experience to kitchens everywhere with her new cookbook, The Puglian Cookbook. The quick fix meals are simple, savory and, most importantly, healthy, with their basic pantry ingredients, fresh herbs, some cheese and olive oil." --Today's Chicago Woman "...turns humble spuds into something still simple but very flavorful, and adds some veggies to your diet, too." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
