All week, Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton have been sharing recipes from Canal House Cooking, Volume 8: Pronto! Today, we're rounding them all up and giving away one last copy of the book.

This week, The Canal House's Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton taught us that Italian cooking is all about simplicity: They demanded that we let fresh ingredients speak for themselves. They introduced us to an addictive butter sauce that we'll be pouring over every vegetable we have. They proved to us that there can be a perfect balance between spicy and flavorful. And they boozed up our apricots. Now the only question we have left is this: Which dish do we make tonight? (How about all of them?)

Mezzi Rigatoni with Tomatoes, Lots of Herbs, Hot Oil, and Mozzarella


Zucchini with Spicy Anchovy Butter

Chicken alla Diavola


Wine-Poached Apricots with Ricotta

We're giving away a copy of Canal House Cooking, Volume 8: Pronto! every day this week! To enter to win today's copy, tell us in the comments: What is your all-time favorite Italian dish? We'll choose winners next Monday, July 28th.
