Author(s): Vincenzo Buonassisi
Vincenzo Buonassisi's landmark work, the culmination of decades of collecting and compiling authentic regional Italian recipes, represents a lost gem of classical Italian gastronomy, today returned to its original glory for an all-new audience. Featuring the first-ever translation of all 1,001 recipes, The Pasta Codex is a complete, authoritative look at one of the world's favourite foods. Incorporating recipes and research from every region of Italy, using every noodle shape and form - flat, shaped, rolled, stuffed - and both dried and fresh pasta, there's never been a more authentic and exhaustive look at pasta. Coded by ingredient - Pasta with Vegetables, Pasta with Vegetables and Dairy, Pasta with Fish, Pasta with Game, and so on - the book is easy to use and understand without detailed knowledge of Italian history or geography. Each recipe is presented plainly in Buonassisi's easy-going voice, no chef-speak here to confuse or dilute the authentic goodness - these are classic nonna dishes from homes and kitchens across Italy.
