Every Night Italian is a book that can be used 7 days a week. Those who have been drawn to Italian food because of its satisfying flavors and healthful ingredients will be pleased to find that it has another wonderful virtue, it can be very quick to prepare. Most of the recipes take well under 45 minutes to prepare and the amount of time required is given at the top of each recipe for easy planning. There is an "Italian Pantry" section in which Giuliano teaches you how to shop for the staples of easy Italian cooking, and a section called "Some Essential Techniques" that guides you with easy to follow line drawings. A unique feature of Every Night Italian is that it teaches readers how to organize their time in the kitchen. In the “Menus” section Giuliano has step-by-step directions to guide the home cook through preparing complete meals quickly and easily.
“Breathtakingly delicious, dish after dish — stunningly quick, with only 3 or 4 basic ingredients and easy techniques Every Night Italian is an absolute treasure for busy cooks.”
“In Giuliano Hazan’s Every Night Italian, every dish can be made in under 45 minutes — many of them well under. The ingredients are almost shockingly few. Hazan’s cooking expresses eloquently the reason so many Americans come home from Italy and search in vain for the sort of food they had over there: the Italians don’t muck things up with a bunch of stuff. ...Because Hazan’s cooking is so true to its heritage and at the same time so welcoming to those of us not born to any single culinary tradition, Every Night Italian epitomizes authenticity in a time when global cross-breeding and competition can yield Kafkaesque complexity or Disneyesque oversimplification. This food is genius — genius distilled from history.”
