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.
