Basic cooking and Basic baking are the solid foundation for learning how to cook and bake. Now we are ready to open a new array of subjects with Basic Italian: even more enjoyment, more fun, more trendy, and more classic cooking with friends. Italy epitomizes vivaciousness and la dolce vita – and Italy's cooking is probably the best loved national cuisine in the world!
As always, the first section of Basic Italian offers basic know-how about shopping for the most important Italian ingredients such as pasta, rice, cheese, wine, proseco and coffee. It explains the 17 basic ingredients for Italian cooking, from mozzarella to balsamic vinegar, and it gives you 16 Italian souvenirs to get that "Italian feeling" at home. The recipe section is divided into starters, snacks and salads, pasta, risotto, pizza and polenta, soups and vegetables, fish, meat and dolci. Yet, this is not just a collection of recipes of an ethnic cuisine, but a new angle to Italian cooking which has the reader's happiness in mind. It is an eclectic collection of classic and new Italian recipes – for big and small parties, for a quick lunch or an in between snack. Auntie Jane's special tips are here too. Layout and photography are in the same style as for the other basic books, with action shots of alfresco meals and parties, of swimming, and Italian style picnics.
