Your Complete Guide to Cooking Perfect Pasta Every Time
Author: Parragon, Incorporated
The Big Book of Pasta includes - Over 140 recipes for different tastes and occasions; Full-color photographs of every recipe; Hints on choosing and cooking dried pasta; Tips for making and shaping fresh pasta dough.
Spaghetti, gnocchi, tagliatellea, ravioli, vincisgrassi, strascinati—pasta in its myriad forms has been a staple of the Mediterranean diet longer than bread. This beautiful volume is the first book to provide a complete history of pasta in Italy, telling its long story via the extravagant variety of shapes it takes and the even greater abundance of names by which it is known. Food scholar Oretta Zanini De Vita traveled to every corner of her native Italy, recording oral histories, delving into long-forgotten family cookbooks, and searching obscure archives to produce this rich and uniquely personal compendium of historical and geographical information. For each entry she includes the primary ingredients, preparation techniques, variant names, and the locality where it is made and eaten. Along the way, Zanini De Vita debunks such culinary myths as Marco Polo's supposed role in pasta's story even as she serves up a feast of new information. Encyclopedia of Pasta, illustrated throughout with original drawings by Luciana Marini, will be the standard reference on one of the world's favorite foods for many years to come, engaging and delighting both general readers and food professionals.
This superbly illustrated cookbook captures all the color, warmth and flavor of authentic Italian cooking. The introduction lets you into the secret of making perfect dough for pasta and pizza, and also gives a fascinating account of Italy's different regional cooking styles. All the recipes are photographed in full color with clear step-by-step pictures to help you create the vibrancy of Italian cooking in your own kitchen.
Learn how to make pasta the authentic Italian way with tips, techniques, and recipes from the chefs of Eataly, the world's greatest Italian food market. From dried pasta to fresh pasta and stuffed pasta, this book culls the wisdom of Eataly's pasta experts and presents dishes, some classics but many with a modern bent, that feature everyone's favorite food. All about Pasta serves as the ideal kitchen companion, whether you would like to master mixing and forming the dough from scratch or you just want to expand your repertoire of easy weeknight sauces for store-bought pasta. Organized by "families" of pasta, the book explains every major pasta shape: its history, the best sauce pairings, and the inside scoop on signs of quality in the market. Recipes range from all-time favorites such as Tortellini in Brodo and Tagliatelle alla Bolognese to contemporary creations from Eataly's restaurants such as Kale Fusilli with Butternut Squash and Penne with Duck and Olive Ragù.
