"To read a book about a country's cuisine isn't simply to go looking for 'good things'; it is also to better know - by means of the recipes - the customs and the richness or poverty of a place, and the spirit of those who inhabit it. It is above all, to participate in the symbolic celebration of the shared repast."

~ Ginette Olivesi-Lorenzi, La Cuisine Mentonnaise

Savoring Tuscany : Recipes and Reflections on Tuscan Cooking

Savoring Tuscany : Recipes and Reflections on Tuscan Cooking (The Savoring Series)
by Lori De Mori

Part of the Savoring Series, which is one of my favorite series of books about Regional Cuisine, Savoring Tuscany is a beautiful book filled with sumptuous recipes and delectable writing about the cuisine and culture of Tuscany. As with all the books in the series, Savoring Tuscany is put together beautifully and all of the recipes are well written and presented. The recipes that we tested were all superb and the book is an excellent source for fans of Tuscan cuisine.

1 pound turkey cutlets
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil divided
2 cups onion coarsely chopped
1 cup carrot coarsely chopped
3 to 4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 10-ounce bag fresh spinach leaves washed, drained & stems removed
1 14-1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes undrained

Place cutlets on cutting board and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper. Slice cutlets into 1/2-inch strips. In 12-inch or larger non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, saute turkey strips in 1/2 tablespoon oil, 4 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F.). Remove from skillet.
