Editorial Reviews

A16 is a San Francisco-based restaurant focusing on the regional Italian cuisine of Campania, and executive chef Appleman and wine director Lindgren feature many of the recipes served at the restaurant. The first section covers the wine varietals of southern Italy and includes descriptions of Italian wine designations; histories of the wines, food pairings, and producer recommendations are also here. The rest of the book is dedicated to food, beginning with an outline of the Campania cooking style. The pantry chapter has descriptions of foods common to southern Italian cuisine that are used at A16, and recipes for simple broths, flavored oils, and ricotta salata. It's important to read this section before starting any of the recipes as it explains seasoning rationale and has recipes for condiments/ingredients found later in the book. A resource list for ingredients and equipment is provided at the end of the book. A16 is a challenging specialty cookbook, coaxing readers to try unfamiliar ingredients and cooking techniques. An optional purchase for libraries with large cookbook collections.—Kimberly Bartosz, Univ. of Wisconsin at Parkside Lib., Kenosha
