This witty cookbook, with its gilded edges and embossed cover, may look old-fashioned, but the recipes are just what we want to eat now. The entire Frankies menu is adapted here for the home cook, from small bites including cremini mushroom and truffle oil crostini, to homemade cavatelli with hot sausage and browned butter. Even better, the Franks included shortcuts and insider tricks gleaned from years in gourmet kitchens. Our favorite: Cheese broth made with all those leftover parmesan rinds which boosts the flavor of soups and pastas.
