Here, Armando Percuoco removes the mystique from restaurant food, to make cooks feel as comfortable in their own kitchens as he feels in the kitchen of Buon Ricordo. He demonstrates how to cook great Italian food in many different ways, and how different techniques can bring out different qualities in them. Recipes include dishes such as Quattro Piccole Paste (Four Little Pastas), Grigliata Mista di Mare (Seafood Barbecue), Fichi Biondi (Baked Figs with Gorgonzola Sauce), Orata in Crosta di Pane (Whole Snapper in Pizza Dough), and Pesche Ripiene (Poached Peaches). A big, bold, and beautiful volume, this gorgeous cookbook emphasizes freshness, simplicity, generosity, imagination.
Armando Percuoco's restaurant, Buon Ricordo, has received multiple awards as Australia's top Italian restaurant. He is the coauthor with David Dale of The Secrets of Pulcinella and La Cucina Italiana.
