Italian Snacking

Sweet and Savory Recipes for Every Hour of the Day

by Anna Francese Gass
In Italian cuisine, there is an entire category of smaller bites—spuntini—meant to be enjoyed at in-between meal moments of the day. This book by Italian food expert Anna Francese Gass introduces the American audience to the complete range of spuntini culture, with recipes drawn from all across the country. She shares recipes for spuntini di meta mattina (mid-morning snacks); merenda, the cherished after-school treat for children (and adults); and aperitivi, early-evening bites meant to be enjoyed with drinks. Also included is a chapter of delicacies from Italy’s robust culture of street food. Studded with gorgeous photography, this book will elevate your snacking game to the Italian ideal. 

Anna Francese Gass grew up in a small town on the Rhode Island shore, with frequent visits to her grandparents in Calabria and summers in Florence. She studied Culinary Arts at the French Culinary Institute and then worked in the test kitchens of Martha Stewart Living, Whole Foods, and Mad Hungry. Today, she is a contributing editor and recipe tester for Food52 and Bon Appétit, and her recipes frequently appear on New York Times Cooking. She has also appeared on Good Morning America, Today, Access Hollywood, and The Rachael Ray Show. She is the author of Heirloom Kitchen (HarperDesign, 2019).
