In this beautifully presented book, Antonio Carluccio invites you to share his love of Italian cooking and eating. With over 150 recipes, inspired by the culinary traditions of each and every region of Italy, you are introduced to and encouraged to enjoy original Italian food at its very best.
The essence of Italian cooking is its reliance on superb ingredients and on simple cooking methods, and none of the recipes here - whether classically regional or more modern in flavour - is difficult to prepare.
Each is overlaid with the personal touches which make Antonio's cookbooks so popular and instructive: his memories of growing up in the countryside near Turin, and of travelling all over his native land, cooking and learning about authentic local dishes and ingredients.
From Risotto con Porcini, a famed speciality of Piedmont, to the Roman favourite, Carciofi alla Giudea, and Cannoli alla Siciliana, together with expert information on wines and cheeses, Antonio demonstrates his mastery of an enthusiasm for the complete Italian eating experience.
Fully revised and updated, 'An Invitation To Italian Cooking' is just that - a fresh, accessible introduction to one of the world's oldest and most enduring cuisines, brought to you from the table of Signor Carluccio, the maestro himself.
