Care Details

To best preserve the longevity and unique character of your made-to-order piece, we recommend the following guidelines.

 S On fabrics bearing code S, you should try to use a mild water-free cleaning solvent or dry cleaning. If this is the case, make sure your room is well ventilated and there are no open flames, such as from fireplaces, candles, or cigarette lighters.
SW Fabrics can be cleaned with either water or solvent base products. Use a mild solvent, an upholstery shampoo, or the foam from a mild detergent.
W Used on fabrics that should be cleaned with water-based cleaning agents only. The best method is to spot clean using foam from only water based cleaners, or non-solvent cleaning products. And when you clean, it is best to apply foam with a soft brush (as to not damage the fabric) in a circular motion and vacuum when dry.
Dry Clean Only Dry Clean Only, wash at or below 30 degrees celcius, iron low temp, do not bleach. Dry Clean any solvent except Triclorethylen, do not tumble dry.
Wood Dust or wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove everyday dust and dirt. Wipe spills quickly and gently with a soft, damp cloth and wipe excess moisture with a dry cloth to precent stains. We recommend to always use a coaster or trivet to limit exposure to moisture and acidic compounds. Avoid use of harch cleaners or abrasive cleaning materials.

Description

In Cucina Povera: The Italian Way of Transforming Humble Ingredients into Unforgettable Meals, Tuscan native and accomplished home cook Giulia Scarpaleggia shares the wholesome, comforting, and nostalgic recipes of cucina povera—Italian peasant cooking that is equal parts thrifty, nourishing, and delicious.

The Italians call it l’arte dell’arrangiarsi—the art of making do with what you’ve got. They’ve been cooking this way for centuries, a unique approach to ingredients and techniques known as cucina povera, or peasant cooking, that results in the highest expression of what Italian food is all about—transforming simple components into unforgettably delicious and satisfying meals.

It’s also a way of cooking that, with some notable exceptions like minestrone, ribollita, and pasta e fagioli, is barely known outside of Italy. Author Giulia Scarpaleggia is all set to change that. She’s a Tuscan home cook, food writer, and cooking teacher who is writing both to elevate the cucina povera of her native country and to honor the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the strong Italian women who came before her. In 100 recipes, beautifully photographed, Cucina Povera shows how to take the humblest of ingredients—beans and lentils; lesser-known cuts of meat; small, bony local fish; vegetables from the garden; rice and pasta; and leftovers—and make magic: Roasted Squash Risotto, Florentine Beef Stew, Chicken Cacciatore, Nettle and Ricotta Gnudi, Summer Borlotti Bean and Corn Soup, Sicilian Watermelon Pudding. And the author’s favorite comfort food, pappa al pomodoro, aka leftover bread and tomato soup. Soul satisfying, super healthy, budget friendly, no waste, easy to make, and as authentic as a piping-hot rice ball from a street vendor in Rome, the cooking of Cucina Povera is exactly how so many of us want to eat today.
