170. Tomato, Garlic, and Potato Frittata p.632

The recipe
The Book’s blurb before the recipe suggests that this dish is equally good as a breakfast dish, or for dinner. I’m not convinced that it belongs in the breakfast section at all. I wanted to make a fritatta as a simple way of doing eggs for a crowd, but this dish is actually more [...]

158. Perciatelli with Sausage Ragù and Meatballs p.222

I can’t find the recipe for this one online, but you can easily fake it. Last time I gave you the recipe for the life changingly good meatballs used in this recipe and they’re by far the most important part.
I mentioned that I’d be putting those meatballs up against one of the boys’ version [...]

130. Pasta with Tomato and Basil p.206

Unfortunately there’s no recipe for this one.

120. Scallops Provençale p.319

The recipe from Epicurious is similar to The Book’s version, but only makes half as much.
I made these for my dining companion’s parents, who came for a surprise visit. The last time I cooked for them the pyrex pan I had my gravy in exploded, so I was a bit nervous about this dinner. We [...]

89. Fresh Tomato Salsa p.896

89. Fresh Tomato Salsa p.896

The recipe
I’m pleased to inaugurate the Sauces and Salsas section of The Book with this recipe. This tomato salsa is about as minimalist as salsa can be. It focuses on clean flavours, but left me wishing for a bit more complexity. It’s comprised of diced plum tomatoes, white onion, serrano chiles, cilantro, salt, and water. [...]
