Synopsis:

In this gorgeous full-color lifestyle cookbook, the Italian cook, television personality, and bestselling cookbook author offers personal tips and tricks on maintaining a healthy diet and provides 65 of his favorite Mediterranean recipes to help you eat deliciously and live well.

"What do you eat on a typical day?" This is the question Italian cook and television personality Marco Bianchi is frequently asked. A food mentor revered for his expertise in maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle, he believes that one’s daily food regime is the key to reaching and sustaining health and happiness. Now, for the first time, Marco opens his home in Milan and shares insights on eating and wellness, as well as some of his favorite recipes—everything necessary to feed the body, mind, and soul.

Cucinare is an exciting behind-the-scenes look at Bianchi’s everyday life, captured in nearly 200 color photographs. In talking about healthy eating, he reminds us that the most often overlooked items for a good, balanced diet are already in the pantry and fridge. He dispels myths involving the science of nutrition and enthusiastically demonstrates his art, giving you the step-by-step instructions and simple ingredients to create delicious, healthy dishes, including:

Apple Walnut Salad with Balsamic Honey Dressing
Mini-focaccia Breads with Seeds and Olives
Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Onions
Pasta with Eggplant, Taggiasca Olives, Capers, and Mint
Mediterranean Sushi

Eating well isn’t a mystery, Bianchi makes clear. The key to building a foundation for good health starts at the dinner table. Mangia!
