"Fans of Donna Leon's mysteries set in Venice and starring her cosmopolitan detective, Commissario Guido Brunetti, will be delighted to have this cookbook" ( Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ).

Aside from their puzzling mysteries, Donna Leon's novels featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti have long been celebrated for their mouth-watering descriptions of food: multicourse lunches at home with Paola and the children, snacks grabbed at a bar with a glass of wine or two, a quick sandwich during a busy day, or a working lunch at a neighborhood trattoria in the course of an investigation have all delighted Brunetti, as well as Leon's readers and reviewers.

In Brunetti's Cookbook , Leon's best friend and favorite cook Roberta Pianaro brings to life these fabulous Venetian meals. Eggplant crostini, orrechiette with asparagus, pumpkin ravioli, roasted artichokes, baked branzino, pork ragu with porcini these are just a few of the over ninety recipes for antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolci.

The recipes are joined by excerpts from the novels, four-color illustrations, and six original essays by Donna Leon on food and life in Venice. Charming, insightful, and full of personality, they are the perfect addition to this "enticing" volume of delicious delights ( The New York Times Book Review ).

Darling and precious illustrations. Traditional recipes. Note that some recipes do not list exact measurements for ingredients -- just approximations. A nice companion to the Inspector Brunetti mysteries and regions of Venezia-Giulia and Frioli. Enjoy!
