Chef Scott Conant, a regular on various Food Network shows, is famous for the handmade pastas and rich desserts served at his New York resto, Scarpetta. Since opening to rave reviews from Esquire and the New York Times, the restaurant, whose Italian name refers to the shape of a crust of bread used to soak up sauce, has spawned four more outposts across North America. Home chefs can attempt restaurant-calibre dishes in The Scarpetta Cookbook (2013 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) and glean Italian cooking techniques, tips for wine pairings, plus learn which flours and oils to use for a dish. At your next dinner party, serve guests one of the most popular meals at Scarpetta Las Vegas, the dramatic Black Farfalle With Lobster.
