(10/04/07)) According to Cooking Light Magazine (Octber 2007) one of the biggest top trends in foods and eating is ‘slow food’. This refers to doing everything in a slower and healthier way- slow shopping for your foods in the locally grown produce and farmers markets. Slow cooking of fresh natural foods, slow eating-sitting down to enjoy a freshly prepared meal with family and friends.
What could define slow food more than the thought of sitting down to an authentic Italian meal at a rustic villa in the mountains of Italy? Celebrity Chef- Maria Liberati defines this slow style of food in her book and now a trademarked method of cooking The Basic Art of Italian Cooking by Maria Liberati tm.
Risotto parmigiana, Macedonia de frutta, linguine alla vongole, fresh gnocchi with tomato sugo- all coupled with the charming and sometimes romantic stories that help to create an authentic Italian atmosphere. All the ingredients used to create The Basic Art of Italian Cooking, published by art of living ,PrimaMedia,Inc. More info can be found at http://www.marialiberati.com
This charming recipe novel has been a bestseller and has delighted audiences with not only Ms. Liberati’s recipes but tales of her life in her villa in the mountains of Italy.
