  • Ragu all'abruzzese e palottine, a sauce with small meatballs
  • Tozzetti, thin biscotti (cookies) typical of the region

About Domenica Marchetti:

Domenica Marchetti calculates that she has spent at least half her waking hours at the stove or dinner table. She grew up in an Italian family, with a mother who had her shaping gnocchi and ravioli before she could walk. She is the author of seven books on Italian home cooking: The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy; Big Night In: More Than 100 Wonderful Recipes for Feeding Family and Friends Italian-Style; The Glorious Pasta of Italy; Williams-Sonoma Rustic Italian: Simple, Authentic Recipes for Everyday Cooking; The Glorious Vegetables of Italy; Ciao Biscotti; and Preserving Italy: Canning, Curing, Infusing, and Bottling Italian Flavors and Traditions. She is a graduate of Columbia School of Journalism and worked as a reporter at newspapers in New Jersey, Detroit and Washington, D.C., covering everything from school board elections to billionaire philanthropists. She has never attended culinary school and has no intention of doing so. She has been featured in magazines and newspapers, including Food and Wine Magazine and the Washington Post. She is also the co-founder of American Food Roots, an online publication that tells America's food stories and explores why we eat what we eat.
