The latest book from the chef behind some of New York City's best-loved wine bars—'ino, 'inotecca, Lupa and Bar Milano—picks up where Simple Italian Sandwiches left off. Denton is still spreading the gospel that fine ingredients can speak louder than lengthy preparations, but has expanded his offerings to include party nibbles, small plates and full suppers.
Each day this week, we'll be posting a party-ready recipe with an Italian accent—just add prosecco. Expect cocktail-friendly skewers of sausage meatballs and bocconcini, a cool-weather Roman-style bruschetta without a tomato in sight, and some seriously chic black olive and cucumber finger sandwiches, more dry martini than Earl Grey tea.
