I am privileged to have an early copy of Frank Stitt’s Bottega Favorita.

A wonderful Restaurant and a great opportunity to let the world know about it!
I call it a Little Italian Heaven in the South!
I have been privy to a few galleys this year and this cook book is tops on my list!
The Chicken Scallopini is wonderful and creamy pollenta is slap your momma good!
Oh yeah! The cover in the first photo you see is not the final cover.  Below is the final one.  
Frank holding a chicken………interesting.
I like the final one much better.
Quote of the day:
“Cooking from an Italian point of view is a little like going back to a more ancient style of cooking–elemental in its purity and simplicity, primal, where an unadorned slice of rosy prociutto is savored with a meltingly tender ripe purple fig.”
~Frank Stitt from his forthcoming book, Bottega Favorita
Question of the day:

What is your favorite Italian dish?
