PASTA GRANNIES: THE SECRETS OF ITALY'S BEST HOME COOKS
From the publisher
Inspired by the hugely popular YouTube channel of the same name, Pasta Grannies is a wonderful collection of time-perfected Italian recipes from the people who have spent a lifetime cooking for love, not a living: Italian grandmothers.
Featuring over 80 easy and accessible recipes from all over Italy, you will be transported into the very heart of the Italian home to learn how to make great-tasting Italian food. Pasta styles range from pici - a type of hand-rolled spaghetti that is simple to make - to lumachelle della duchessa - tiny, ridged, cinnamon-scented tubes that take patience and dexterity.
More than just a compendium of dishes, Pasta Grannies tells the extraordinary stories of these ordinary women and shows you that with the right know how, truly authentic Italian cooking is simple, beautiful and entirely achievable.
From Chef Scott
I think that what I love the most about this book is the sheer variety of pasta recipes. Within its pages, I've found types of pasta that are totally new to me, like the potato-filled culurgiones. Equally enticing for the cook looking for new ideas are the kaleidoscope of sauces - "Felicia's Basil Pasta with Aubergine Sauce" is one of my favorite recipes.
The stories and photos are charming, respectful and inspirational. Truly, any lover of Italian cooking will be something wonderful in this book.
