The Art of Traditional Italian

by Lucio Galletto

Lucio Galletto grew up in a village on the Ligurian coast of Italy, where his parents had a restaurant.  In The Art of Traditional Italian, he celebrates La Cucina Italiana: the flavours, the history and the techniques of Italian cuisine, perfected over centuries.  All you favourites are here – vitello tonnato, spring minestrone, risotto alla milanese, eggplant parmigiana, veal saltimbocca and tiramisu, along with many more classic dishes you’ll wish you’d tried sooner.

This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds – original artworks from some of Australia’s finest artists accompany the recipes in this exciting collaboration between Lucio and the long-time friends whose art famously lines the walls of his Sydney restaurant, Lucio’s.

This is food from the heart – passionate, generous and authentic.
