Italian Taste - Pasta
35 Recipes by Top Italian Chefs
“What we by instinct, in common parlance, would call a ‘first course’, in the following recipes, not without a certain feeling of relief, are not first either in position or importance. Yet pasta keeps its primacy in prestige, which it alone can boast when it comes to a display of Italian cuisine. It is as if to stress the fact that, although of less noble birth, its absence always leaves an empty space in the expectation as well as in the perception of anyone desiring to emerse themselves in a fully Italian taste experience.”
Italian Taste is a collection of signature-cuisine recipes created by top Italian Chefs, all of whom trained at Alma, the world’s leading international educational and training centre for Italian cuisine. The book is enriched by a special section dedicated to a conversation between Gualtiero Marchesi, the best-known Italian Chef in the world, and Massimo Montanari, internationally-renowned food and nutrition historian.
This is a unique and extraordinary collection which is indispensable both to professionals and to those who are just passionate about cooking. The superb, surprising and unmistakable photographs by Arturo Delle Donne, Alma’s tasty-food photographer, capture and complete what each Chef communicates through flavour.
ALMA educates chefs and sommeliers from all over the world, creating professionals specialized in Italian Cuisine through training programs held at the highest level by world-leading teachers. For those who have chosen to work in the fascinating world of fine cooking, ALMA, based in the magnificent Palazzo Ducale of Colorno near Parma, Italy, represents a valuable investment for the future as well as an extraordinary training experience.
