A traditional Italian meal is one of the most comforting—and delicious—things that anyone can enjoy. Award-winning chef Nancy Silverton has elevated that experience to a whole new level at her Los Angeles restaurants Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza. I had the good fortune of trying the pasta tasting menu at Osteria Mozza last month, and I left the restaurant dying to recreate the dinner at home.
While the recipes for the pastas I enjoyed at Osteria Mozza require the full cookbook—reliant as they are on sub-recipes for making pasta and sauces from scratch—I’d like to share with you a recipe from The Mozza Cookbook for ricotta gnudi with chanterelles. It’s the perfect season for the mushroom’s woodsy, earthy flavor.
