Cookbook series: Italian Food is a series of 12 volumes developed with the intention of presenting “authentic” Italian cookbooks. This is because Italian cuisine, though loved and appreciated, is often a victim of free (and sometimes imaginative) reinterpretations.
Assets: Each volume includes 60 illustrated recipes from the Italian culinary tradition, without any re-adaptation in terms of preparation techniques or choice of ingredients (for this reason, the typical ingredients used in recipes are described and illustrated in a special section of each volume, where possible alternatives are also recommended). Quantities are indicated both following the international metric system (g, kg, dl) and the Imperial system (oz, lbs, cups).
Contents: This cookbook will allow you to serve a touch of the Italian spirit. Rice is the most common type of food in the world, while risotto is an exclusive pride of the Italian gastronomic tradition. You will find some other gastronomic specialties as well, like rice balls (arancinis) or rice salads.
