You don't have to be a fan of the Cooking Channel's Extra Virgin to enjoy the cookbook companion to the show hosted by actress Debi Mazar and her husband Gabriele Corcos.
The pair's upcoming cookbook Extra Virgin: Recipes & Love From Our Tuscan Kitchen is a labor of love and showcases 120 modern Tuscan recipes like 'Tuscanized' guacamole with baked beet chips, white bean and pancetta bruschetta, pecorino and honey dip and their twist on traditional recipes like lasagne all bolognese and spaghetti puttanesca.
Recipes aren't the only thing being dished in the cookbook as the dynamic duo lend their voices to countless tales behind each dish. Mazar's New York lifestyle combines perfectly with Corcos' Tuscan upbringing to delight readers and transport them to a land where the sun always shines.
Italian food enthusiasts will especially enjoy a section dedicated to Tuscan pantry essentials - from extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar to fresh herbs like rosemary, basil and sage.
No doubt, Extra Virgin: Recipes & Love From Our Tuscan Kitchen makes a great gift for any foodie in your life. The book will be released on May 6th. Pre-order a copy for $20.56 on Amazon.
