Overview

When an Italian cooks dinner, it's always a meal to savor and enjoy with as many people as can be found to share it with. Gennaro shares his favorite family recipes—the ones that will feed a crowd of hungry guests, from his 90-year-old father to his three-year-old twin girls.

Overview

When an Italian cooks dinner, it's always a meal to savor and enjoy with as many people as can be found to share it with. Gennaro shares his favorite family recipes—the ones that will feed a crowd of hungry guests, from his 90-year-old father to his three-year-old twin girls. Older generations give advice; all hands are on deck to help; and the whole family sit themselves down at the large dining table to join in the feast together. The table is like the altar—to eat, drink, discuss, argue, and confess—but most of all to enjoy the wonderful food! All the recipes cater for large numbers of people, but have tips on how to adapt them for smaller groups. There are hints on how to prepare things in advance, advice on which dishes go with what, and plenty of creative menu ideas. Here is everything a chef needs to transform his kitchen into a little slice of Italy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hailed as Britain's greatest Italian chef and owner of London's restaurant Passione, Contaldo shares his favorite family recipes—that is, for a large family or cooks planning a dinner party. Each dish serves eight to 12 people. Contaldo has a gift for making even the simplest foods divine—his french fries (called Herby Chips) are made with a mix of herbs, breadcrumbs, potatoes, and egg whites. Given that this is a UK import, the metric measurements may be a drawback for U.S. cooks. Still, this personal and visually appealing title is strongly recommended for libraries, fans of Italian cooking, and eaters everywhere.
