Dining Out in Philadelphia: A Guide to the City's Food Scene

Planning a trip to Philadelphia in future and looking for information on where to eat while in the city? My Guide to Philadelphia's Restaurant and Food Scene is a great place to start.

I've compiled links to my various articles and "best of" lists for the city, as well as choice reviews, links to other Philly food blog sites, the best gourmet food stores, and more. You can also vote in polls on the city's best restaurants, chefs, and quintessential Philly foods.

Learn Italian Cooking from the Best Cookbooks Available



So I'm almost ashamed to admit this picture showcases just a section of my cookbook library - and just a section of the Italian cookbooks at that. There are so many Italian cookbooks out there it can be almost impossible to know where to start, so a lot of people just reach for titles by the big name TV celebrity chefs like Giada, Lidia, Mario et al. Truthfully I don't think many of them are nearly as good as some of the lesser-known Italian cookbooks out there.

Based on my years in the kitchen, I've put together a list of my top 10 favorite Italian cookbooks. These are all books I've used recipes from repeatedly and found delicious and not too difficult to prepare at home. Are any of these books on your shelf? What are your favorite Italian cookbooks?
