Description

Product Description

Winner of the  2014 James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef: the top chef in the country

A traditional Italian meal is one of the most comforting—and delicious—things that anyone can enjoy. Award-winning chef Nancy Silverton has elevated that experience to a whole new level at her Los Angeles restaurants Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza, co-owned with restaurateurs Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. A reservation at Mozza has been the hottest ticket in town since the restaurants opened and diners have been lining up for their wildly popular dishes. Finally, in The Mozza Cookbook, Silverton is sharing these recipes with the rest of the world.

The original idea for Mozza came to Nancy at her summer home in Panicale, Italy. And that authentic Italian feel is carried throughout the book as we explore recipes from aperitivo to dolci that she would serve at her tavola at home. But do not confuse authentic with conventional! Under Silverton’s guidance, each bite is more exciting and delectable than the last, with recipes such as:
Fried Squash Blossoms with Ricotta
Buricotta with Braised Artichokes, Pine Nuts, Currants, and Mint Pesto
Mussels al Forno with Salsa Calabrese
Fennel Sausage, Panna, and Scallion Pizza
Fresh Ricotta and Egg Ravioli with Brown Butter
Grilled Quail Wrapped in Pancetta with Sage and Honey
Sautéed Cavolo Nero
Fritelle di Riso with Nocello-soaked Raisins and Banana Gelato
Olive Oil Gelato

In the book, Nancy guides you through all the varieties of cheese that she serves at the Mozzarella Bar in the Osteria. And you’ll find all the tricks you need to make homemade pastas, gelato, and pizzas that taste as if they were flown in directly from Italy. Silverton’s lively and encouraging voice and her comprehensive knowledge of the traditions behind this mouthwateringly decadent cuisine make her recipes—both familiar and intricate—easy to follow and hard to resist. It’s no wonder it is so difficult to get a table at Mozza—when you’re cooking these dishes there will be a line out your door as well.

Review

“This cookbook is freaking awesome. Silverton truly wants to share what she knows with her pupils. Usually, that knowledge is passed on to her restaurant chefs and cooks. But with The Mozza Cookbook, for a brief moment, it gets to be us.” —Jenn Garbee, LA Weekly
 
“ . . . filled with beautiful rustic food photography and all the staple recipes.” —Kat Odell, Eater Los Angeles

“I was struck by how fully and faithfully a chef''s personality can translate from restaurant to page. [The book’s] lavish presentation of unusually lovely photographs seemed just right. Silverton takes full advantage of California''s vivid produce. Her book, like her menus, casts the universe as a luxurious garden. . . . lyrical and nurturing.” —Frank Bruni, Food and Wine

Chapter 1

Apertivi and stuzzichini

One of the things I enjoy most about my time in Italy is the rituals that punctuate every day-a particular favorite being cocktail hour. In my town, in the summertime, every afternoon at around six o''clock, the entire population descends on the one bar in town, Bar del Gallo, which everyone refers to as Aldo''s, after its owner, for an aperitivo. In the hour or two between a postlunch nap and dinner, we sit at the tables that spill out from the bar into the piazza and enjoy relaxed conversation at a slow pace that I rarely experience here.

The primary difference between Italian cocktail hour and American cocktail hour is that Italians don''t eat. Italians might have seven salty peanuts at the bar, or they might indulge in a little cube of mortadella or mozzarella at a stand-up reception. The word for these little bites is stuzzichini, which comes from the word stuzzicare, meaning "to tease" or "to whet." The idea is to stimulate the appetite, not ruin it. And Italians would never, as we might, turn cocktail snacks into dinner.

All that said, when we host private parties in the Primo Ministro room, the private dining room in the Osteria, or in the Scuola di Pizza, the special-events room attached to Mozza2Go, our customers request to start with a cocktail hour that includes tray-passed stuzzichini.

But since Mozza is, as I''ve said, an Italian restaurant as seen through the eyes of American owners, the stuzzichini that we offer are a bit more substantial and flavorful than cubes of mortadella. We serve bite-size morsels that are easy to eat with a cocktail in one hand, such as crostini (pages 46-50) and Pancetta-wrapped Figs (page 54). You probably won''t find anything so rich or filling at a cocktail hour in Italy, but we hope you enjoy these. And for you purists, forgive us the transgression, and enjoy your peanuts.

Italians are deeply habitual when it comes to what they eat and drink and in what order. They would never, for instance, have a glass of wine after they''ve had a digestivo, or after-dinner drink. During cocktail hour, there are only a few acceptable options, the most common of which is a glass of Prosecco, or Italian sparkling wine. At Mozza, we greet guests for private parties with a glass of Prosecco and one of our sommeliers carries a magnum of Flor Prosecco around the dining room, refilling glasses and greeting regular customers with complimentary glasses. For those who prefer a cocktail, we offer some, also included in this chapter, conceived in an Italian spirit and executed in an American one.


sugar plum
Makes enough pomegranate reduction for 8 cocktails

for the pomegranate reduction
1⁄4 cup pomegranate juice
1⁄4 cup sugar
for each cocktail
2 ounces vodka (or gin)
1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
1 1⁄2 teaspoons pomegranate reduction

to make the pomegranate reduction, combine the pomegranate juice and sugar in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves and the juice thickens to the consistency of thin syrup. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool the syrup to room temperature before using. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.

To make each cocktail, combine the vodka, grapefruit juice, and pomegranate reduction in a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain the cocktail into a martini glass and serve.


il postino
I don''t rent out my house in Italy but I do let friends stay there. The "rent" that I charge is always the same: one book and one DVD. Our collection of both is pretty random, but thankfully someone at some time thought to bring the movie, Il Postino, one of my all-time favorites.

Makes enough honey syrup for 8 cocktails

for the honey syrup
3 ounces mild-flavored honey, such as clover or wildflower honey
2 tablespoons water

olives al forno
In the Italian tradition of stuzzichini, I don''t like to put out so many appetizers that my guests will ruin their appetites, but two things that I must serve whenever I entertain are roasted olives and toasted almonds tossed with olive oil and sea salt. These olives, which are tossed with citrus zest and garlic confit, are as beautiful as they are delicious. If we get an unusual olive variety, we might throw that in, but normally the combination we use is Lucques, Castelvetrano, Taggiasche (or Niçoise), and Picholine. You can use whatever combination of olives you want or have access to, as long as they''re not the canned pitted things I grew up with. Also, keep in mind that it''s ideal to have a variety of colors and sizes.

You can prepare the olives up to a month in advance. Keep them in the refrigerator and roast them just before serving. If you are preparing them in advance, however, omit the garlic confit and garlic oil, as they will cause the olives to spoil more quickly. Prepare the olives with only the regular olive oil, and add the garlic and garlic oil up to several days before you are ready to roast them.

Makes 1 quart of olives

4 cups mixed unpitted olives (such as 1 cup each Lucques, Castelvetrano, Taggiasche or Niçoise, and Picholine), drained
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Wide zest strips of 1 orange (peeled using a vegetable peeler)
Wide zest strips of 1 lemon (peeled using a vegetable peeler)
4 dried bay leaves
1⁄2 cup fresh rosemary needles
Garlic Confit (recipe follows)
1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar

Suggested wine pairing: Lambrusco Bianco I.G.T. (Emilia-Romagna)

Combine the olives in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, orange rind, lemon rind, bay leaves, and rosemary. Add the Garlic Confit, including the chiles, and toss to combine.

Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 500ºF.

Transfer the olives to a large shallow baking dish or several small shallow baking dishes. Place the baking dish on a baking sheet to catch any oil that bubbles over, and place the olives in the oven until the oil is sizzling and the olives are light golden brown on top, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the olives from the oven and drizzle the balsamic vinegar over them while they''re still hot. Serve warm.


garlic confit
1 cup garlic cloves
3 dried whole arbol chiles
1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or more as needed

Combine the garlic, chiles, and olive oil in a small saucepan. Add enough oil to come three-fourths of the way up the sides of the garlic.

Heat the oil over high heat until it just starts to bubble; you will start to hear the first sizzling noises and the first rapid bubble start to come up. Reduce the heat and simmer the garlic until it''s deep golden brown, soft, buttery, and spreadable. Keep a careful eye on the garlic cloves and don''t overcook them; they burn easily and will continue to brown as they cool. Set the garlic aside to cool to room temperature and use or transfer the contents of the saucepan to an airtight container and refrigerate for several days. Store the garlic cloves with the oil and chiles in the refrigerator in an airtight container for several days. To store the garlic for a longer period of time, add enough oil to completely cover the cloves and refrigerate them for up to several weeks.


toasted almonds with sea salt
This isn''t really a recipe, just a method for toasting almonds, but I felt that it was important to talk about almonds since, as I''ve said, they are my favorite thing to set out before a meal, not to mention to snack on while setting up at work or at home. Toasting the almonds enhances their flavor, and then tossing them with olive oil and sea salt turns them into something really worth eating. We call for toasted almonds in various recipes, such as Burrata with Asparagus, Brown Butter, Guanciale, and Almonds (page 78). Anytime we ask for toasted almonds I suggest you make more than what the recipes calls for, as I know you''ll want some to snack on.

To toast almonds, adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 325ºF. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and toast for 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are fragrant and golden brown. Remove the almonds from the oven, drizzle them with the olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and toss to coat the almonds with the seasonings. Transfer the almonds to a pretty bowl, and serve.

Nancy Silverton is a fabulous chef that I have followed for years. Her food is exquisite and her cookbooks are beautiful.
I fell in love with the pictures in this cookbook long before I cooked a single recipe but, in cooking many of them, I was not disappointed.
I have used numerous of the recipes in this book and each and every one of them is well-written and easy to follow and execute. They all turn out really well and are super tasty.
I recently had the opportunity to dine at Mozza and was thrilled to see many of the dishes in the book were still on the menu and they tasted just like the recipes I''d been following...although so much better at the restaurant with Nancy cooking them instead of me. ;-)
This is one of my favorite cookbooks and go-to for dinner parties.

I''m extremely impressed with the book. First, I live in LA and am a huge fan of both Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza, so I already know I like most of the recipes. Second, I appreciate the fact that these recipes are truly different (sometimes in subtle ways) than the ''standard'' versions of the dishes presented. Example: the meatballs. Mozza has wonderful meatballs, and you could spend a lot of time trying to figure out what is special about them. It turns out that the answer is quite simple: they contain no beef, but they do contain ground pancetta, so the meats are veal, pork, and pancetta. This may not sound like a big difference, but I strongly recommend trying the recipe and promise that you will have a hard time going back to regular meatballs. Third, I like the intellectual honesty of the book. Example: the Torta Della Nonna contains three cheeses, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Coach Farms Goat Cheese, and mascarpone. This is a very non-traditional combination, but most important, it is exactly the kind of thing done in a restaurant kitchen (ie combining commodity cheese like Philadelphia with high end Goat Cheese) that most of the time no one would admit to in a book. How many times have I bought a restaurant cookbook where it is glaringly obvious the recipes bear no resemblance to what is actually done in the restaurant? Not so with this one. The exceptions, where they exist, are well specified. Fourth, these are simple recipes that pretty much anyone with a moderate level of cooking experience could make (possibly with some artistic license, for example not making the pasta by hand as it''s recommended), but ones that have enough twists and changes in them that an experienced chef is sure to learn some exciting new flavor combinations. Fifth, the details behind each recipe are there for people who want them. Example: one of my favorite Osteria Mozza dishes is the orecchiette with rapini and fennel sausage. Most books would just call for ''fennel sausage'' in the ingredients when in fact the specific fennel sausage is really key to the dish (and it''s an excellent one). In this book, the actual fennel sausage recipe is there -- of course it''s up to you whether or not you want to go to the trouble of making it. Bottom line - I have a huge cookbook collection. While I enjoy thumbing through most of them, this is one of the few that I will actually make a lot of stuff from on a regular basis. Highly recommended, especially for those who can''t drive a few miles to eat at the restaurants in person.

Let''s get this out of the way: this book is phenomenal. If you follow the recipes faithfully, they will lead you down the path of flavor glory.

Things to consider --

1. You need time, and lots of it. The authors talk about restaurants having prep cooks and full staffs to do the work that you, as a home cook, will endeavor to do on your own. Most recipes call for elements that need to first be created by looking elsewhere in the book. It''s laborious stuff and you''ll most likely be parceling out sections of your work over several days. You''re going to be falling down a Mozza rabbit hole. It''s delicious, but it requires scheduling.

2. You need money and access to products. Many of the book''s suggested ingredients (especially if you want to get them at the quality you''d expect from Mozza) aren''t reasonable for people on a tight budget or for people who can''t readily obtain things like ground veal or burrata.

3. Invite friends to try your creations. You''ll want everyone to know what you made and how amazing you are as a cook!
