From award-winning chef and Food Network personality Scott Conant, a cookbook of restaurant-quality Italian meals that you can make easily in your home kitchen.
Thirty-five years into an illustrious career of restaurant openings across the country, widespread acclaim, and frequent appearances on the Food Network’s Chopped and many other shows, Scott Conant has returned home to create his most personal cookbook yet. Meals cooked from simple, fresh ingredients were staples of Conant’s childhood in a New England family with roots in Southern Italy. From his grandparents’ garden to the dinner table, he learned early on to appreciate the nuances of different flavors and ingredients, and the strong connection between food and family.
Focusing on these foods Conant grew up with and the ones he makes for his loved ones today, Peace, Love, and Pasta compiles simple, fresh, and flavorful Italian recipes for the home cook to bring to their own family’s table.
“This book is a beautiful tribute to the home kitchen; the simple, honest food we make for our families and friends. Scott is sharing with us the recipes of his childhood, of his life, of the very essence of who he is.” José Andrés, chef, restaurateur, and founder of World Central Kitchen
“Scott cooked me one of the greatest pasta meals of my life. To now have his family-friendly home recipes available in Peace, Love, and Pasta is a gift to us all. Paccheri, malloreddus, fusilli, maccheroni, or pasta e fagioli, where do I start? This book will definitely be a new go-to resource for me.”
