Franny’s: Simple, Seasonal, Italian

Andrew Feinberg, Francine Stephens, and Melissa Clark. Artisan, $35 (376p) ISBN 978-1-579-65464-1
Brooklyn residents have long enjoyed the simple yet incredibly flavorful meals at Franny’s, Andrew Feinberg and Francine Stephens’s much-beloved restaurant. This husband-and-wife team showcases a wealth of rustic, uncomplicated recipes for everything from soups, salads, and fritti to fish, vegetables, and cocktails. Where they shine brightest is in the chapters on crostini, meat, pasta, and pizza. Recipes for whipped eggplant and anchovy crostini; roasted pork sausage; bucatini with ramps; and pizza rustica are among the mouth-watering offerings they provide. Other favorites include marinated cabbage with walnuts, bread crumbs, and Parmigiano-Reggiano; meatballs; spring onion frittata served on toast; and chicken liver and pancetta. Most recipes are fairly simple and easily made at home. When a little more know-how is required, as is the case with their incredible porchetta, the authors provide straightforward step-by-step instructions accompanied by photos that demonstrate the proper technique. The dessert chapter is gelato-rich and offers up numerous varieties including strawberry, mascarpone honey, pistachio, caramel, and more. For fans of Franny’s, this book is a true gift that will be put to frequent use. Readers unacquainted with the restaurant will delight in the many culinary treasures the authors share. Agent, Janis Donnaud, Janis A. Donnaud and Associates. (Aug.)
