12. Oktober 2010 Rome Sustainable Food Project
The Rome Sustainable Food Project, a program devoted to providing organic, local, and sustainable meals for the community of the American Academy in Rome, has launched a delicious revolution to rethink institutional dining. Headed by chef Mona Talbott, a Chez Panisse alum, and guided by Alice Waters, the menus have given rise to a new, authentic cuisine inspired by la cucina romana, Chez Panisse, and the collective experience of those working in the AAR kitchen. Biscotti is the first book in the series. Each volume, covering a single subject, contains authentic, simple recipes for favorite dishes served at the academy’s communal table, narrated with carefully explained techniques and methods–suitable for both the home cook and the institutional kitchen.

Our first bite into this book project is a sweet one, focusing on fifty biscotti and dolcetti (cookies and sweets). Subsequent volumes in the series will include muffins and scones; pasta, long and short; vegetables; preserves; and more.

"...small but comprehensive, comprising 50 mostly traditional recipes for the treats best loved by the Academy's friends, students and workers (the authors are both employed there). Start with almond-cornmeal and work you way through to chocolate-hazelnut." —Charlotte Druckman, Wall Street Journal Weekend

“This book has recipes for all those cookies you tasted if you’ve ever been to Italy or lived there and thought you’d never find again, she says.” —FoxNews.com
“As you'd expect from a book with a foreword by Alice Waters, its recipes are sustainable yet delicious – 50 types of Italian cookies from pine nut and rosemary to honey and cardamom.” —The Observer, The 25 Best Cookbooks of 2010
“Proof that not all biscotti are sweet, super-crunchy half-moons. The bite-sized biscotti here range from dry and lightly sweet — the kind of cookie you'll want to soften with a dip into a caffe latte or a sweet Italian wine like vin santo — to highly sweetened varieties that don't need any liquid pairing.” —American Airlines, AA.com
“Dieters, beware: "Biscotti:" a smart little cookbook from the Little Bookroom, is Mephistopheles in cookie form…. With a forward by Alice Waters, this book is the first of a series of small hardbacks devoted to a single subject that will provide a glimpse into the American Academy in Rome.” —Pittsburgh Tribune
“Biscotti – Recipes from the kitchen of the American Academy in Rome offers a remarkable selection of cookies. The recipes can be made for greater numbers by scaling up the quantities, which makes it an interesting book for those with a crowd to feed and little time. Tastefully executed, this volume would be a well-received gift for any baker, be they novice or passionate expert.” —Mostly Food
“What can be better than a cup of coffee and a biscotti in the morning? That is the premise behind this lovely and mouthwatering book. Author Mona Talbott is the executive chef of the Rome Sustainable Food Project, which was established to create eco-gastronomic, authentic cuisine for the American Academy in Rome, where American cooks create biscotti, a mainstay of Italian sweets.” —June Sawyer, The Chicago Tribune
“Biscotti: Recipes from the Kitchen of The American Academy in Rome is a really charming book and filled with some familiar but mostly unfamiliar recipes.… I could easily see working my through this book, cookie by cookie!” —Amy Sherman, The Epi-Log on Epicurious
"Just in time for Thanksgiving is Mona Talbott's cookbook, Biscotti: Recipes from the Kitchen of the American University in Rome. The protege of Alice Waters consulted on the menus for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Chappaqua residence and worked as a private chef for Annie Leibowitz." —Vogue
“For the past four years, Canadian chef Mona Talbott of the American Academy in Rome—and author of the new cookie bible Biscotti—has transformed the institution’s dinner table into a model for sustainable dining.” —Travel + Leisure
“This charmer carefully explains techniques—and a little history—behind the traditional Italian bite-sized cookies served at the Academy’s communal table. A treat to try: biscotti al pistachio.” —Coastal Living

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Mona Talbott’s first food-related job was working in large reforestation camps in Canada. After culinary school she was hired by Alice Waters to work at Chez Panisse and the Edible Schoolyard program. She later worked at Eli Zabar’s Vinegar Factory and EAT stores in New York. She consulted for Hillary Clinton at her home in Chappaqua, New York. In 1999, Talbott began working for photographer Annie Leibovitz, and in 2004, she was hired by Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project to design a children’s gardening and cooking program. Since 2007, Talbott has been executive chef at the Rome Sustainable Food Project at the American Academy in Rome. She has published articles and recipes in Saveur, Organic Style, and The New York Times.

Mirella Misenti is the pastry chef at the American Academy in Rome.

Alice Waters, chef, author, Vice President of Slow Food International, and the proprietor of Chez Panisse, is an American pioneer of a culinary philosophy that maintains that cooking should be based on the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients that are produced sustainably and locally. Waters’s commitment to education led to the creation of The Edible Schoolyard, a model public education program, and the School Lunch Initiative, a national agenda that integrates a nutritious daily lunch and gardening experience into the academic curriculum of all public schools in the United States. She established the Chez Panisse Foundation in 1996 to support the Schoolyard and encourage similar programs that use food traditions to teach, nurture, and empower young people. Her latest book is In the Green Kitchen, available in April, 2010.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Für Biscotti Freaks ein Traum - und ein tolles Geschenk 10. September 2011
Von Andrea
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ich habe dieses Buch so in mein Herz geschlossen, dass ich es bereits mehrfach verschenkt habe. Es spiegelt voll den Flair der American Acadamy in Rome wieder in der liebevoll Biscotti Rezepte erprobt und erfunden werden. Ich habe schon etliche Rezepte probiert und bin mit allen Kreationen sehr zufrieden gewesen. In Englisch geschrieben werden aber alle Maßangaben in europäisch und US-amerikanisch gemacht.
Die Druckqualität ist toll, die Fotos sehr stimmungsvoll und autentisch. Ein tolles und besonderes Geschenk für alle Backfreaks(wenn man es sich nicht selbst sowieso schenken will).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Authentic Italian Cookies 16. November 2010
Von Book Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As for the negative review because the book contains no "biscotti" recipes, the reviewer is correct. This book has no "biscotti" or what we Americans have come to know as biscotti recipes.
Just as Italian grandmothers tend to refer to all long, strand pasta as spaghetti, this book refers to crisp cookies as biscotti. If you are looking for a lovely book to add to your collection, please consider this one. The pictures are charming and the recipe selection is perfect - a little bit of everything. There are no ooey-gooey chocolate brownie type sweets, but the kind of cookies you can mail, share and keep in a cookie jar to enjoy days later with tea or coffee. If you like walnuts, pictachios or pine nuts, this book is for you. I LOVE it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Biscotti Bible 24. Januar 2011
Von Charles G. Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Biscotti comes from the Latin word biscoctus meaning 'twice cooked, or baked.' Baking them twice makes them dry, so they're easy to store for long periods of time. This was highly advantageous at one point in time. Twice-baked breads were useful during long journeys and wars, and were a staple food of the Roman legion. Now, it's simply a lovely left-over result of the original recipe that we're still enjoying today. From the kitchens of the American Academy in Rome, 'Biscotti' is a very special cookbook, a small love letter to one of Italy's most famous sweets.

The book is the first in a series of small hardcover cookbooks on single subjects to be published by the American Academy in Rome in conjunction with the Rome Sustainable Food Project, a program devoted to providing organic, local and sustainable meals for the community of artists who work and study at the AAR. Author, Mona Talbott is the American born, Chez Panisse-trained Executive Chef who oversees the kitchens of the Academy. Alice Waters is also part of the collaborative dining program advising on menus, and food choices. The program was first implemented in 2007 when the Academy remodeled and revamped the AAR kitchens. The Rome Sustainable Food Project facilitates the AAR's move towards sustainable, and local cooking and eating.

The book is comprised of fifty recipes for bite-sized cookies, or biscotti, and includes five categories: Milk and Wine; Nuts; Honey, Citrus, and Spice; Meringue; and Chocolate. There are recipes for cookies to be eaten throughout the day - for dipping into caffe latte in the morning, for after lunch (or dinner) dips into vino dolce, or dessert wine, or to eat with a mid-afternoon espresso. While the original biscotti di Prato recipe used only almonds, modern recipes now include other types of seeds and nuts like pine nuts, sesame seeds, walnuts, and almonds; dried fruit; herbs and spices are added too; flavorings like extracts and liqueurs are also used.

The recipes in 'Biscotti' use these and more. There are even recipes for ladyfingers, macaroons, and snickerdoodles. To appease homesick American students the kitchen created peanut butter cookies - not a cookie an Italian would normally eat. This is an interesting cookbook from a unique organization. It could easily be too esoteric but it's not; it's the opposite - down-to-earth and accessible. The recipes are easy to follow, and they work. The end result is the best proof of the book's success: it's almost impossible to stop popping these bite-sized cookies into one's mouth. It will be interesting to see what the Academy and the Rome Sustainable Food Project come up with next.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Senior Project Manager Nike Inc 17. November 2010
Von wendy hollister - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I love the way Chef Mona Talbott has created an easy to follow collection of cookie recipes. Her book has inspired me to bake every cookie recipe listed in the book. The question is which recipe do I bake first as they all look so good in the beautiful photographs. Mona is to be commended for her dedication and commitment to the slow food sustainability movement. Bellisma!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Cookies, not Biscotti 20. Januar 2013
Von Allison M. Maltese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Quite frankly I thought that this book would be about what Americans call Biscotti not cookies. However, it is full of authentic Italian cookie recipes, great photos and stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Biscotti is Italian for "cookies" 8. September 2012
Von Francesca Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
To those who complained that the book has a misleading title:
The title could not be more accurate, as these are Italian recipes and all the sweets in the books go by the name of "biscotti" in Italy. The book description and the editorial review both mention that the recipes include cookies and biscotti. It's a shame that those reviewers gave 1 star to the book because they didn't read the description.

As an aside, what Americans call "biscotti" go by many other names in Italian: cantucci, cantuccini, scroccadenti, tozzetti, biscotti di Prato, and more. "Biscotti" is just a generic term that encompasses all.
