Recapturing the heart and soul of Italy one recipe at a time, this book is an authentic touristic culinary companion that allows you to absorb and understand a little of the history, culture, and passion of the country. It makes you want to get on the next flight out to Italy, sip Chianti by the lakes, and dig into the local specialties plate by wonderful plate; but more than that it makes you want to go into the kitchen to cook and to eat. Nothing says Italy like its food, and nothing says Italian food like Mamma Mia.
This small, lovely hardcover cookbook is stylishly designed with photographs of real Italian kitchens and dishes, and makes cooking easy-to-follow and fun. From antipasta to ciabatta, focaccia to carpaccio, and of course quintissential Italian pasta and pizza, this book will walk you through Italy's most delicious, authentic meals, and entertain you with fascinating facts about each dish.
