    DescriptionA food for all occasions, pasta's huge variety of shapes, textures and flavours makes it the perfect basis for all kinds of meals, from sophisticated dinner parties to simple suppers at home. In this fully revised edition, Antonio Carluccio once again shares with you his Passion for Pasta, providing innovative and exciting recipes for soups, main courses, salads and even desserts to promote this staple ingredient of traditional Italian cookery to the rank of haute cuisine. The cookbook contains 100 delicious pasta recipes: from Egg in Raviolo with White Truffles, Oriecchiette with Lamb Ragout, Pappardelle with Quail Sauce, through to the unusual Chocolate Pasta Sauce. Forget the blasphemy of bottled sauces, ready-made pasta dishes and pre-packed Parmesan cheese. Instead, seek inspiration from the palette of delicious Italian ingredients Parma ham, mozzarella, radicchio, artichoke hearts, wild mushrooms and truffles combined with originality and genius in Antonio Carluccio's pasta masterpieces.

    Author Information
    The master of Italian food, Antonio Carluccio has been cooking, eating and championing Italian food for over 50 years. Born on the Amalfi Coast in the South and raised in the wooded North-West, Antonio has a rare and privileged breadth of culinary knowledge. He moved to London in 1957 and he took over the Neal Street Restaurant in Covent Garden in 1981. In 1991 Antonio opened a deli next to the restaurant and in 1998 started the first Carluccio's Caffe in Market Place, London. After developing the Carluccio's cafe business Antonio is no longer a director but continues to work with the Carluccio's team on menu development and chef training whilst also concentrating on new projects. In 1983 Antonio made his first appearance on BBC 2 talking about Mediterranean food and at the same time was asked to write his first book, An Invitation to Italian Cooking. Subsequently he has written thirteen books, published worldwide and made numerous television programmes including the hugely popular Antonio Carluccio's Northern Italian Feast and Southern Italian Feast. In 2007 he was awarded an honorary OBE.
    Review quote
    A revised and updated edition of the famous pasta book by one of the biggest names in modern cookery books. You can tell a book is a classic when the author's name is printed on the cover, as it is here, in letters that dwarf the title. You could call this book simply 'Carluccio' and bookshop customers would be flocking to it. This is one that makes a fetish of simple pasta, that uses a common basic foodstuff and turns it into a rare delicacy. The publishing genius of revised editions of cookery books is that owners of the original versions are bound to buy them because it is in the nature of good food that you always want more of the same. Here Carluccio delivers. Anyone for Chocolate Pasta Sauce? Form a line, children.
