Tough economy. More women work. Tourism increased. Oh, so many worldwide changes. But in rural Tuscany, we continue to go to the piazza and join in starting the day with our neighbors who are buying vegetables, having a coffee, joking with friends. What has lasted is a comfortable sense of community. The weekly outdoor markets endure and are as lively as ever. (I was afraid that ancient tradition would disappear.) Dinner is still at 8. The quality of produce still excels. So, basically daily life seems the same. Since most of these recipes are simple and fast, meant to get dinner on the table in 20 minutes, she starts out with the things you need to know. There is a lot of talk about pasta, about the shapes, how best to use the shapes, what the different weights of pasta are best suited for. She encourages cooks to explore new types of pasta, to explore online stores and create a pantry with an eclectic collection of noodles for these dishes. Then it’s on to the virtues of good, like really good, extra virgin olive oil and how to make use of its cooking and health benefits. And then it’s the basics of cooking pasta. Once you’re set with all that, it’s time for recipes. Mayes starts with ideas for Vegetables and Cheese. From the simple sounding Penne Rigate with Spicy Broccoli Rabe and Toasted Garlic to the classic Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe, from a hearty Baked Gigli with Four Cheeses and Ten-Minute Tomato Sauce to a lighter Lemon Pistachio Linguine. There are also several different recipes featuring mushrooms, adding rich flavor without meat, like the Pappardelle with Dried Porcini Mushrooms, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Croutons.
