Meet the Author

Elisabetta Parisi knows about pasta and it is her passion for pasta over the year that has resulted in the production of this book. Pasta is in her blood and in her genes. In Italy pasta is a part of life and this shows in the energy and skill that Elisabetta puts into her cooking.
Good pasta means starting with the right ingredients and then making everything from scratch. Add to this the know how passed down through generations and you have the contents of this book.
If you are new to homemade pasta then this is the perfect place to start. You may think that making pasta is hard but this book soon puts your mind at rest so that you can get on with the cooking. It contains basic information on flours that you can use for pasta; the different ways of mixing and rolling the dough; how to shape the pasta and of course how to cook it.
The first version of this book released on Kindle was a much shorter production which concentrated on the accurate making of a limited number of pasta doughs. This book was praised for being short, sweet and to the point. Many people bought the book and it proved to be very popular in the Italian section where it quickly became number 1 in the top 100 books sold. Based on this success, Elisabetta has reviewed and extended the material in the original book so that it contains far more pasta dough ideas including how to produce a variety of stuffed pasta and dessert pasta. This then resulted in the version of the book currently published as a paperback and on Kindle as well.
Elisabetta is skilled in the cooking of a variety of other Italian dishes as well as a number of other European styles and this has resulted in the production of a number of other Kindle releases that you may be interested in:
