Thirty years ago, the only thing Australians knew about Italian food was spaghetti bolognese. Now we order the most adventurous dishes with perfect pronunciation. Italian food is the most accessible, generous and participatory cooking style in the world. Even an absolute beginner can produce meals that are satisfying and impressive. In Buon Ricordo, Armando Percuoco removes the mystique from restaurant food, to make you feel as comfortable in your kitchen as he feels in the kitchen of Buon Ricordo. He shows you how to cook great Italian food in many different ways, and teaches you how different techniques can bring out different qualities in them. Buon appetito e buon ricordo.
Armando Percuoco's previous books, co-authored with David Dale, are The Secrets of Pulcinella and La Cucina Italiana. David Dale's books include The Obsessive Traveller, or Why I Don't Steal Towels from Great Hotels Any More; and Who We Are: A Snapshot of Australia Today.
