From Joseph Trivelli, co-head chef of the world-renowned River Cafe, comes the ultimate classic guide to laid-back, comforting Italian food. Trivelli first learned to cook watching his Italian grandmother transform a few simple ingredients into something mouth-watering within their family kitchen. In this, his first book, he brings up-to-date all the traditional Italian food he grew up with alongside his own inventive creations. Featuring over 150 original recipes that cater for quick dinners right up to family feasts, Joe's focus is on fewer ingredients, exquisitely prepared. With chapters on pasta, fish, meat, vegetables and baked dishes, these are recipes sympathetic to the home cook - easy to throw together but look and taste incredible every time. Beautifully designed with evocative photography throughout, this is the Italian cookbook every modern kitchen needs.
