This would be a great accompanying item to Mario Batali's panini pan or a panini grill as a gift.... From Publishers Weekly The Dentons' first book is as perfect in its simplicity as the panini that fans line up for at the authors' tiny New York restaurants, 'ino and 'inoteca. Known for their magic with a panini grill, the couple have put together an accessible, comprehensive guide to the ingredients and techniques (often involving a panini grill) that yield their delicious signature variations on the Italian pressed sandwich, such as Italian Tuna, Oven-Roasted Tomato and Arugula Panini; Sweet Coppa and Hot Pepper Panini; and Artichoke, Fennel and Fontina Panini. They also offer an array of open-faced bruschetti, from Caponata and Goat Cheese Bruschetta to Fig, Prosciutto and Arugula Bruschetta. Less familiar are tramezzini, crustless white bread sandwiches that are a popular Italian between-meal snack, and the book offers an entire section on these oft-ignored finger sandwiches, from savory combos such as Pancetta, Arugula and Oven-Roasted Tomato Tramezzini to simpler fare such as Egg Salad Tramezzini. Warm and inviting guides to a rustic cuisine they love, the Dentons include sections on aperitifs, antipasti and salads—and put the pleasures of an Italian tradition within the reach of every American home cook. 35 full-color photos.
