If you love pasta and are passionate about knowing how to use it properly, you’ll love this book.
It's one of the most interesting Italian cook books you’ll ever come across.
A large part of it deals with de-mystifying how to make pasta, including the best ingredients to use; the benefits of dry versus fresh pasta; and importantly it explains which sauces are best suited to the many different pasta shapes.
It’s peppered with anecdotes, historical facts and regional recipes, and illustrated with eye-catching back and white designs.
This is one of those books you can pick up and find something different to interest you time and again.
A cross between an Italian cook book and a coffee table book it would make a wonderful gift for the person who loves Italy and all things Italian.
