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: With this cookbook, making a plate of pasta (a symbol of the Italian spirit throughout the world) is fun: meat, fish, vegetable or cheese sauces or even fresh and tasty pasta salads. Choose the recipes you prefer using the little stars (the level of difficulty) that you will find next to each recipe, and follow the preparation and cooking times indicated.
Macaroni and Pasta
Finally a cookbook with simple recipes that doesn’t make you look for avocadoes in winter or make you feel like you can never make a decent plate of pasta!
I bought this book out of curiosity since I just came back from Italy and already miss what is, to me, the best cooking in the world. Will try one of the pasta salads soon for my kids!
