From the cover: “The food of Italy has a history as long and magnificent as its native country, yet it remains at the forefront of culinary innovation and style. In this collection of over 100 new recipes Antonio Carluccio, Italian food’s greatest champion, takes the best of the old and the most delicious of the modern and brings them together to create food that is as full of passion as it is flavour.

Quality is the keynote of Antonio’s recipes and this is as true of a simple Pizza Fritta or Wild Mushroom Salad as it is of more elaborate delights such as Risotto with Two Artichokes or Chicken Scaloppine with Herbs. Inspired by the finest ingredients and flavours of northern Italy, he reinterprets the classic dishes of Italian cookery to create recipes like Ossobuco al Barolo and Zuppa di Pesce as well as putting together some fabulous new creations like Polenta with King Prawns and an ice-cream extravaganza called The Doges’ Delight.

Although often simple, this is never fast food. A great enthusiast for the pleasure of eating, Antonio’s recipes are to be enjoyed at your own pace. This is food to share and savour with friends, with a dash of laughter and a generous sprinkling of conversation. It is food designed to enhance, not to take over, your life. So pull up a chair, have a glass of wine, relax and enjoy Antonio Carluccio’s Italian Feast.”
