Master the Classics

Master the Classics

Stefano is always encouraging you to "use what you have" and make recipes your own. Experimentation in the kitchen is fun and a great way to ensure you truly enjoy what you make. Often, the way to make a recipe your own is to master the recipe first. Knowing how to make scrambled eggs with success can make you confident about adding cheese, for instance, and knowing how to make a basic pasta dough allows you to make a double batch successfully, or incorporate spinach next time.

With that in mind, we've gathered some of the classics here. Recipes from a simple side salad to a classic lasagna, with the hopes that once you've mastered the classics, you can really make them your own. Watch Stefano make a classic roast chicken in this quick video, and you may never buy a pre-made one again. Better yet, you can spice it up as you like, change the herbs, add some mushrooms to the pan or whatever else you choose to do after you've got this recipe down!
