I’m guessing that at least once in your life you’ve had the not-so-awesome pleasure of biting into a slice of rock hard biscotti. You usually fall victim to such a thing at a neighborhood coffee shop, which serves up the “ubiquitous biscotti” half-dipped in chocolate.

Fresh Tastes blogger Adrianna Adarme shares a personal tribute to Marcella Hazan’s legacy.

Parmesan Risotto recipe

When I was sixteen, I was an ambitious hostess. I liked to throw parties. I liked to cook dishes I had no idea how to cook. And I usually liked to try and do a lot of them all at the same time, which wasn’t always the best move. One Christmas I decided to make a Feast of Seven Fishes. I grabbed my first Marcella Hazan book, The Essentials of Italian Cooking, that was gifted to me from my in-the-know and avid book-collector of an uncle.
