Marcella's Italian Kitchen by Marcella Hazan (Knopf: $22.95, 331 pp., illustrated). Marcella's latest book focuses on Italian home cooking. The author describes it as "spontaneous, pithy, spirited, direct." The recipes are intended to reflect today's trend toward lightness and freshness. Although the author first cooked most of the dishes in her Venice and Bologna kitchens, all were tested later in New York, using American ingredients. Some make use of radicchio , sweet yellow peppers, fresh porcini mushrooms and white truffles--outstanding Italian ingredients that are now much more available in this country.
