The highly anticipated debut cookbook from Marc Vetri of Philadelphia's Vetri Ristorante, considered by many of the country's top food critics to be the best Italian restaurant in America.
Philadelphia enjoys one of the country’s most dynamic food scenes, and Marc Vetri is its top culinary talent. Mario Batali called Vetri Ristorante “possibly the best Italian restaurant on the East Coast.” Vetri’s refined rustic-Italian cuisine is on brilliant display in IL VIAGGIO DI VETRI. The recipes showcase the chef’s soulful renditions of Italian classics, and accompanying notes by sommelier Jeff Benjamin offer lively lessons on the classic and lesser-known wines of the region. Throughout, Vetri shares tales of his cooking apprenticeship in northern Italy and shows how to bring the lessons he learned there into the home kitchen.
