Theo Randall loves Italian food. As head chef at the iconic River Cafe he won a Michelin star for his Italian menus, and his restaurant Theo Randall at the InterContinental is consistently voted one of the best Italians in the UK. Here, Theo wants to show you how to make his favorite Italian dishes at home—the food he cooks and eats when he's not working at his restaurant. Theo focuses on what he loves best—a few top quality ingredients making perfectly balanced flavor combination—and offers over 100 recipes with simple methods that work in a home kitchen. Theo's recipes take from just 15 minutes to make from scratch so you can pick a dish depending on the time you have, then spend more time eating, enjoying and sharing the food you've prepared. Chapters are split by meal times with an emphasis on simplicity, with big and small sharing plates and lots of one-pots on offer. There are speedy starters, mains and desserts, but Theo shows you how to make Italian staples from scratch too. So, when you do have time and want to make your own pastry or bake your own pizza, you have the best recipes to hand. Includes metric measures.
