Another lovely book by these two outgoing Italian cooks that is full of not only recipes, but plenty of reading as well.
is one of two books that they have produced together and it was
released in conjunction with a very enjoyable TV food travel series.
liked it less than the other book as many of the recipes were using
ingredients that I cannot access easily or would have to substitute.
Many if those substitutes would change the flavour of the recipe and
that defeats the point of reading a cookbook. Substituting flavours and
ingredients is something I do 'after' trialing the original recipe. That
is the beauty of cooking from books for me. Finding recipes. Trying
them the way the author makes them and then tweaking them to ones own
taste and local ingredients.
It is definitely more a cookbook for the European market than the world market.
there were plenty of recipes in the book I will try. Such as the
Risotto with Prawn and Courgette Flowers. Oh yes. Where have you been
all my life??
