A “swoon-worthy” illustrated tour of Italian desserts and treats, from the James Beard Award–nominated author of Opera Lover’s Cookbook (Publishers Weekly). Join food historian Francine Segan on a lavishly illustrated tour of Italy, with more than one hundred recipes for cookies, cakes, pastries, puddings, frozen confections, and more. Drawing from all regions of Italy, Dolci collects recipes from grandmas in remote villages as well as hip young bloggers, world-renowned pastry chefs, and small local cafés. Classics like Cannoli and Zuppa Inglese are featured alongside unique regional favorites like Sweet Rosemary and Chocolate Eggplant. Embellished with bits of history and Italian food lore, this cookbook offers new innovations like an “updated” Tiramisù that doesn’t use raw eggs, unexpected frozen delights like Spumone with Homemade Hazelnut Brittle, an award-winning Parmesan Panna Cotta with Pears, and many other irresistible Italian treats. Rounded out by a chapter on after-dinner drinks, this delectably comprehensive guide offers “a canon of authentic recipes collected from the people who really use them” (The Wall Street Journal).

A sweet tooth is a powerful thing. Babies everywhere seem to smile when tasting sweetness for the first time, a trait inherited, perhaps, from our ancestors who foraged for sweet foods that were generally safer to eat than their bitter counterparts. But the "science of sweet" is only the beginning of a fascinating story, because it is not basic human need or simple biological impulse that prompts us to decorate elaborate wedding cakes, scoop ice cream into a cone, or drop sugar cubes into coffee. These are matters of culture and aesthetics, of history and society, and we might ask many other questions. Why do sweets feature so prominently in children's literature? When was sugar called a spice? And how did chocolate evolve from an ancient drink to a modern candy bar? The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets explores these questions and more through the collective knowledge of 265 expert contributors, from food historians to chemists, restaurateurs to cookbook writers, neuroscientists to pastry chefs. The Companion takes readers around the globe and throughout time, affording glimpses deep into the brain as well as stratospheric flights into the world of sugar-crafted fantasies. More than just a compendium of pastries, candies, ices, preserves, and confections, this reference work reveals how the human proclivity for sweet has brought richness to our language, our art, and, of course, our gastronomy. In nearly 600 entries, beginning with "? la mode" and ending with the Italian trifle known as "zuppa inglese," the Companion traces sugar's journey from a rare luxury to a ubiquitous commodity. In between, readers will learn about numerous sweeteners (as well-known as agave nectar and as obscure as castoreum, or beaver extract), the evolution of the dessert course, the production of chocolate, and the neurological, psychological, and cultural responses to sweetness. The Companion also delves into the darker side of sugar, from its ties to colonialism and slavery to its addictive qualities. Celebrating sugar while acknowledging its complex history, The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets is the definitive guide to one of humankind's greatest sources of pleasure. Like kids in a candy shop, fans of sugar (and aren't we all?) will enjoy perusing the wondrous variety to be found in this volume.

A palate-pleasing cookbook that “enables us to virtually visit Italy’s 20 regions and savor its pastas” (Booklist). In Pasta Modern, Italian food authority Francine Segan challenges the notion that pasta must be traditional or old-world. In this beautifully photographed cookbook, Segan details the hottest, newest, and most unusual pasta dishes from Italy’s food bloggers, home cooks, artisan pasta makers, and vanguard chefs. The one hundred distinctive pasta recipes, including many vegan and vegetarian specialties, range from simple and elegant (Gemelli with Caramelized Oranges and Crispy Pancetta) to more complex (Neapolitan Carnevale Lasagna) to cutting-edge (Cappuccino Caper Pasta). Tips and anecdotes culled from Segan’s Italian travels enhance the easy-to-follow directions, and a glossary of more than fifty extraordinary dried pastas showcases shapes to revive any pasta lover’s repertoire. For contemporary, authentic Italian pasta, Pasta Modern is the go-to guide.
