Honoring Marcella Hazan with Her Parmesan Risotto

We note the passing of Marcella Hazan, an Italian cookbook legend, who the food community lost on September 30th, 2013. She was 89 years old. PBS was honored to have her make a rare television appearance on an episode of The Mind Of A Chef, which aired in late Fall 2013.

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.

Give Fall a Hearty Welcome With Pumpkin Bread


Everything about Fall makes me giddy. It is, after all, my favorite season. I do all the stereotypical Fall activities like apple picking, wearing too many scares, heirloom pumpkin buying, pumpkin carving, and of course, baking. The brisk air, amber light and falling leaves all encourage baking.

Pancake Alternatives: Almond Dutch Baby

I spent a good year of my life testing pancake recipes for my Pancake cookbook – it was a glorious, carb-filled year. After that pancake-making stint, I didn’t want to eat or make another pancake recipe for a very, very long time. And I didn’t. I steered clear of them, instead opting for savory egg dishes with bacon or sausage on the side…until a few days ago when al I wanted in the entire world was a stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes. As I opened my cupboard, I was disappointed to discover that I had run out of baking powder and baking soda, so I turned to the type of pancake that gets its leavening from eggs: the glorious Dutch Baby.

I feel like the galettes have become as ubiquitous as the cupcake; they’ve been everywhere this summer. I’m pretty sure their identity as the “lazy, easy pie” is what makes them so appealing to the masses. No transferring of dough, no crimping, no perfection needed. Galettes embrace the flaws and imperfection all of us need sometimes.
