Book Description

29 Aug 2013
Katie and Giancarlo embarked on a two year-long journey to discover the different methods of conserving food, from smoking fish in Scotland to drying chillies in Sri Lanka, and this book collects their favourite recipes and invaluable advice on equipment, timings and ingredients.

Broken down into straightforward chapters such as Sugar, Air and Salt, the book guides us through the extraordinary world of preserving the very best of produce. Covering Italian cured charcuterie inspired by Giancarlo's family recipes, jams and chutneys evoking Katie's memories of cooking with her mother to pickling, fermenting, freezing and pressure canning they combine traditional tried-and-tested methods with a thoroughly modern perspective.

'Both inspiring and surprisingly useful'--Leslie Geddes-Brown, Country Life

Praise for The Italian Cookery Course:
'This book is not only a fascinating read, teaching you about the regions of Italy, but is also full of things that you really do want to cook.' --Thomasina Miers, The Times

'Open the book and you'll find fabulous recipes, but it's the passion Caldesi has put into it that makes it come alive' ----Delicious

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 20 Mar 2014
By Susan C
Format:Hardcover
A fabulous book, researched with care and passion. It covers a whole host of ways of making food more delicious whilst extending its life. Armed with a Cameron Mini Stovetop Smoker I made some hot smoked salmon which was fab. I also have home cured bacon in my fridge courtesy of 5 minutes' work and a ziplock plastic bag.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 20 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's not a gentle art at all. Very complicated and not what I was expecting. Great if you own a smoke house or canning factory!
