Synopsis

In Simple Italian, Silvia Colloca shares the essential dishes and techniques that are at the heart of the world's most popular cuisine. With 100 recipes and countless tips and tricks, you'll be cooking like a nonna in no time. Create silky smooth pasta, find out which shapes go with which sauce and learn the secrets to achieving perfectly creamy risotto and soft gnocchi every time. Alongside chapters on pasta, gnocchi and rice, you'll also learn how to create stunning antipasto spreads and cook hearty mains and elegant sides to go with them. Whip up light and airy focaccia, then turn your leftover bread into delicious meals, such as meatballs or deep-fried mozzarella toasties. And don't forget the sweets - nothing fancy here, just the simple cakes, biscuits and tarts that Italians actually eat at home. If you have always wanted to be able to cook like an Italian, this book is for you. Silvia's food is authentic, fresh, simple and delicious. No fussy or elaborate techniques and nothing but the best produce and ingredients. These are the meals that Italians can't live without - and soon you won't be able to either.
