The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual
From urban singles to families with kids, local residents to the Hollywood set, everyone flocks to Frankies Spuntino—a tin-ceilinged, brick-walled restaurant in Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens—for food that is completely satisfying. This witty cookbook, with its gilded edges and embossed cover, may look old-fashioned, but the recipes are just what we want to eat now.
The entire Frankies menu is adapted here for the home cook—from small bites and salads to hearty main dishes, including homemade cavatelli with hot sausage and browned butter. With shortcuts and insider tricks gleaned from years in gourmet kitchens, easy tutorials on making fresh pasta or tying braciola, and an amusing discourse on Brooklyn-style Sunday "sauce" (ragu), The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual will seduce both experienced home cooks and a younger audience that is newer to the kitchen.
