We were so saddened to hear the news of Marcella Hazan’s passing over the weekend. Marcella’s cooking was never fussy, but rather focused on simplicity and the highest quality ingredients. It is an approach we try to follow every day in the Oliveto kitchen. She will be greatly missed.

Starting tonight and through the weekend we’ll be celebrating the life and cooking of Marcella Hazan. On the menu in tribute:

Minestrone alla Marcella
Antipasto: salad of Cannellini beans and albacore salad
Trofie con pesto

Parmesan-crusted lamb costeletas alla Marcella Hazan with long-cooked Romano beans, farro, and lemon
