Book Description

24 July 2003

A food for all occasions, pasta's huge variety of shapes, textures and flavours makes it the perfect basis for all kinds of meals, from sophisticated dinner parties to simple suppers at home. In this fully revised edition, Antonio Carluccio once again shares with you his Passion for Pasta, providing innovative and exciting recipes for soups, main courses, salads and even desserts to promote this staple ingredient of traditional Italian cookery to the rank of haute cuisine.

The cookbook contains 100 delicious pasta recipes: from Egg in Raviolo with White Truffles, Oriecchiette with Lamb Ragout, Pappardelle with Quail Sauce, through to the unusual Chocolate Pasta Sauce. Forget the blasphemy of bottled sauces, ready-made pasta dishes and pre-packed Parmesan cheese. Instead, seek inspiration from the palette of delicious Italian ingredients Parma ham, mozzarella, radicchio, artichoke hearts, wild mushrooms and truffles combined with originality and genius in Antonio Carluccio's pasta masterpieces.

More About the Author

In 1958, at the age of 21, Antonio Carluccio began to cook simple pasta suppers for himself and his flat-mate on a two-ring stove in Vienna. Now, known for his gentle manner, gruff voice and his wild crop of white hair, Antonio is regarded as the Godfather of Italian gastronomy.

Being born on the Amalfi Coast in the South and raised in the wooded North-West has given Antonio a rare and privileged breadth of culinary knowledge. It was here, in Piedmont, at the age of seven, that Antonio started his life-long past-time of hunting and collecting mushrooms and funghi with his father.

After time spent living in Germany, Antonio moved to London in 1975 and while learning English, traded as a wine merchant of Italian wines. His hobby of studying and collecting wild mushrooms continued to flourish as he found many varieties growing in the English countryside close to London, almost completely undiscovered.

Antonio took over the Neal Street Restaurant in Covent Garden in 1981, which traded for 26 years. In 1991 Antonio opened a deli next to the restaurant and in 1998 started the first Carluccio's Caffè in Market Place, London. After ten years developing the Carluccio's caffè business Antonio is no longer a director but continues to work with the Carluccio's team on menu development and chef training whilst also concentrating on new projects.

In 1983 Antonio made his first appearance on BBC 2 talking about Mediterranean food and at the same time was asked to write his first book, An Invitation to Italian Cooking. Subsequently he has written many books, published worldwide and made numerous television programmes. In 1998, Antonio was awarded the Commendatore OMRI by the President of Italy for services to Italian gastronomy, the equivalent of a British knighthood. In 2007 he was awarded an honorary OBE.

Product Description

Review

A revised and updated edition of the famous pasta book by one of the biggest names in modern cookery books. You can tell a book is a classic when the author's name is printed on the cover, as it is here, in letters that dwarf the title. You could call this book simply 'Carluccio' and bookshop customers would be flocking to it. This is one that makes a fetish of simple pasta, that uses a common basic foodstuff and turns it into a rare delicacy. The publishing genius of revised editions of cookery books is that owners of the original versions are bound to buy them because it is in the nature of good food that you always want more of the same. Here Carluccio delivers. Anyone for Chocolate Pasta Sauce? Form a line, children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 15 Sep 2006
Format:Paperback
This is, without a doubt, the difinitive guide to what to do now you own a pasta machine. My only complaint is that it lacks some of the great photography that marks modern cookery writing (see the "A little Taste of" series for what I mean). If you make your own pasta don't be daunted by the baffling array of shapes he uses, I find that most recipes work equally whatever I add them to (although this isn't a popularist view back in Italy). Given the game season is almost upon us, try the rabbit/pheasant/mushroom recipe - divine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion for Pasta 21 Mar 2011
By Ann5
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book, so many recipes to choose from. I have made the pasta from this book and it was of a far better quality then my previous recipe. It's all to do with the amount of egg added.
Would recommend this book.
