A Brooklyn favorite with a national following, Franny's is known for its simple, seasonal Southern Italian dishes and exceptional pizza. Alice Waters says it best in her foreword: "This book captures the beating heart of what makes Franny's so beautiful: its simplicity, its ability to make the ordinary surprising, and--above all--its celebration of honest everyday cooking. ...more

I am addicted to Italian cookbooks. I fell in love with the food on a visit Sicily, and have cooked more Italian than anything every since. "Franny's Simple, Seasonal, Italian" sucked me in immediately. This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Lovely recipes such as "Warm Controne Bean Salad with Radicchio and Pancetta" (lets face it--if it has pancetta in it, it HAS to be good!!), "Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Almonds and Pecorino", (my FAVORITE cheese of all time!), "Spaghetti ...more

My cooking group cooked about 10 dishes from this book. All of them were really tasty, and not fussy. Just really good ingredients combined in delicious ways.
I love that they're presenting a different view of Italian cuisine with such simple recipes. I hope it breaks the hold of the spaghetti-and-meatballs Italian cuisine stereotype a bit, there's so much more.
Love that the flavors are meant to shine through on their own. I'm not a fan of making everything with stock & it was lovely to see several things made with WATER. Lots of great things in this book.
Some cookbooks make you want to cook, others make you want to eat. This book made me want to visit Franny's for several dinners. Delish!
