The menu

Having my parents over, the in-laws over (maybe), the sister and her unknown guest over, and a long term family friend. Probably my last chance to Cook Big before I leave. Here we go…

All recipes for Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Italian Cooking.

  • Crostini Bianchi p. 52
  • Roasted Peppers and Anchovies p. 53
  • Roasted Eggplant with Peppers and Cucumber p. 55
  • Marinated Carrot Sticks p. 56
  • Focaccia p. 618
  • Chick Pea Soup p. 113
  • Aio e oio p. 170
  • Grilled fish (Sicilian Salmoriglio) p. 289
  • Bistecca fiorentina p. 385
  • Crema con mirtilli p. 596

Wine will be a sparkling brut rosé (sorry) to start, followed by a Sicilian white and a red-to-be-determined (but leaning towards a Nero d’Avola, a recent interest of mine).

So… what am I missing?
