Mangia is known throughout the New York area for its uncommonly fresh, tasty, and imaginative food. Its innovative menu of market-fresh salads, overflowing sandwiches, warming soups, hearty entrees, and home-baked treats has kept happy New Yorkers coming back for more, day after day.
With this book, Mangia's delicious yet surprisingly simple specialties can at last be made at home. Based on the traditional eating styles of the Mediterranean and that area's reverence for simplicity these recipes epitomize the best of casual eating: a satisfying sandwich of goat cheese, grilled radicchio, and roasted red peppers a comforting cup of scallop and tomato bisque or a warm-from-the-oven slice of chocolate bread for breakfast. All two hundred recipes in the book are simple to prepare and adapted for the home kitchen, making them perfect choices for a family supper, an effortless dinner party, or an indulgent Sunday brunch. So whether you are looking for party platters, a make-ahead room-temperature dinner, or inspiration for your picnic hamper, Mangia can elevate your everyday cooking and special entertaining to its highest level.
