Without an understanding of tradition, you cannot make real Italian food!Lucio Galletto grew up in a village on the Ligurian coast of Italy, where his parents had a restaurant. In The Art of Traditional Italian, he celebrates La Cucina Italiana: the flavors, the history, and the techniques of Italian cuisine, perfected over centuries. All your favorites are here—vitello tonnato, spring minestrone, risotto alla milanese, eggplant parmigiana, veal saltimbocca, and tiramisu, along with many more classic dishes you'll wish you'd tried sooner. This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds—original artworks from some of Australia's finest artists accompany the recipes in this exciting collaboration between Lucio and the long-time friends whose art famously lines the walls of his Sydney restaurant, Lucio's. This is food from the heart—passionate, generous, and authentic. Lucio's eponymous restaurant is famously lined with artworks by some of Australia's most accomplished artists, and this book follows suit—each chapter features original artwork from one of his artist friends. A feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, this glorious book will become a treasured addition to the shelves of cooks and artists everywhere. Includes metric measures.
