Emiko’s writing has held me in its seductive grip since I reviewed her first book, Florentine. I found serenity in her words and recipes. Her second title, Acquacotta (a celebration of the traditional cuisine of a lesser known part of Tuscany, the Silver Coast) was equally as brilliant. I would think that one would not be able to continue to create such beauty time and again, but I would be wrong.  Emiko’s latest is perfection with vivid storytelling, stellar photographs and recipes that will inspire and lure us into the kitchen. Tortellini at Midnight is a book that will be handed down to children or gifted to those we truly love. There is an old-world quality and elegance to the actual pages of the book. Couple that with the exquisitely written narrative, stunning photography and rustic but elegant recipes and you have a book destined for deserved accolades. The first recipe that I made from the book was the Pasta con la ricotta (photo above) a dish that took the time needed to cook the pasta, but resulted in a delicious and comforting meal. From the title, to the paper the book is captured upon, to its glorious content, Tortellini at Midnight is magic. Emiko is touring, check our calendar to see if she is in your area. Our   takes you inside this beautiful book and features the following    If you order this title before our promotional period ends, register here (be sure you have a photo of your receipt or screenshot from your online order ready to upload).
