Italian Cuisine: (Hardcover) by Academia Barilla
When it comes to culinary riches, Italy is in a class by itself. A wealth of geographical conditions and climates--from high mountain peaks to verdant valleys to a sea-splashed coast--is responsible for the peninsula's matchless gastronomic variety. From this vast treasure trove, Academia Barilla has chosen 130 easy-to-follow recipes that reflect Italian culinary tradition, from Ascolana-style stuffed olives to Leg of Lamb al fieno maggengo to decadent gelatos and cakes. Gorgeously illustrated, Italian Cuisine is a feast for the eyes as well as for the palate.
