'Love it' - Prue Leith
'Delicious fresh pasta in different shapes and flavours' - The Metro
The day has come. We're inviting you to travel with us through Italy's most beautiful regions. From Veneto in the northeastern corner to the islands of Sicily and Sardinia off the southern coast, we've collected the best pasta recipes and brightest flavours that each region has to offer, allowing you to create Perfect Pasta at Home.
Whilst we encourage you to try your hand at making fresh pasta dough from scratch, under the expert guidance of our sfoglina, Roberta, this illustrated cookbook also includes over 10-minute, 20-minute and 30-minute recipes that can be made using dried pasta.
With a photo to accompany every recipe and 'Make Your Own' pages to help you use up the ingredients you have left in your fridge or cupboard, along with pages on the history of pasta shapes, regional traditions, interviews with nonne and more for the real pasta lovers - this is a must-have addition to any kitchen.
Imagine the turquoise ocean sparkling beneath the afternoon sun whilst you tuck into a plate of tagliatelle wrapped in a delicious sauce made with the finest Amalfi lemons, or hear the splash of a gondola paddle in the moonlit Grand Canal as you indulge in a rich Venetian duck ragù with thick strands of freshly made pappardelle. In Perfect Pasta at Home, we bring you this and much more, including rich stories of Italy, its people and its history.
Whether it's midweek dinners for the whole family or a special weekend meal with friends - there's always an occasion to indulge in a little italianità with a plate of pasta! With over 80 mouth-watering, easy-to-follow recipes to tantalise your tastebuds, Perfect Pasta at Home is the must-have cookbook for anyone passionate about pasta.
