The recipe “Chicken with Marsala” It is taken by Artusi

After some time I go back to post recipes taken directly from’Artusi, that long, successful on blog.

For those who do not know or do not remember, “Artusi” It is an abbreviation which is commonly known cookbook The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating well Foodie celebrate Pellegrino Artusi (1820-1911).

This is the recipe Chicken with Marsala:

“Cut the chicken into large pieces and place in a saucepan with a chopped onion, chopped fine and a bit of butter. Season with salt and pepper and when browned, add the broth and pull it in baking. Pass the sauce, skim off the fat (with a sheet of absorbent paper n.d.a.) if necessary, and return the chicken to the fire with a little’ marsala, levandolo soon as he has taken the boil” (Photo gives: casartusi.it).

    Pellegrino Artusi, as well as great gastronome, It tried to give maximum publicity to the Italian language, at a time when Italy was building. He avoided foreign words carefully, especially the Frenchified, so fashionable in his day. It was recommended by the housewives who did bearers, in family, a good Italian.
    The same goes for its cuisine, purely Italian, or at most regional. So why not put an image with the original title, or in Italian?

        I see, and the rest “L'Artusi” It is one of the most translated books, in all the languages!
        I liked just remember this patriotic aspect of his personality.
        It's true, he began writing essays on Foscolo and Giusti, but I would say that the most enjoyable read is that of his autobiography, and of course, its recipes!
