Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spinach balls (Polpettine di spinaci)

    • MaryCunningham86 on April 25, 2014

      I love these and make them anytime I have an abundance of spinach or silverbeet (silverbeet works fine in place of the spinach - the mixture may just be a little less fine) and usually serve them atop of pasta with a simple tomato-based sauce, with plenty more parmesan for good measure!

  • Pasta with pesto (Trofie al pesto Genovese)

    • saladdays on July 25, 2013

      A fool-proof recipe for a classic pasta favourite. We used fusilli instead of trofie and freshly picked home-grown basil. Summer in a bowl!

Antonio Carluccio's Simple Cooking is a coming together of all the 'secrets' that Antonio has learned over his many years of cooking. Packed with easy, reliable and delicious dishes, it is the perfect cookbook for the novice and enthusiast alike. All the mouthwatering recipes featured are very easy to cook, perfect for those with little experience or who are short of time. Throughout, Antonio has also included clever suggestions for how to 'upgrade' the basic recipe by adding a 'luxury' ingredient or an extra component - an anchovy or two, perhaps, some chilli and capers, or an accompanying sauce. There are also ingenious recipes for using up leftovers, with Antonio always remaining budget-conscious. And, of course, all the dishes are completely delicious, for they are Antonio's favourites, employing the basic tenets of the finest Italian cooking: top-quality ingredients prepared simply and served without fuss. The recipes are illustrated with fabulous photography by Alistair Hendy,including several step-by-step sequences. Antonio Carluccio's Simple Cooking is a distillation of a lifetime of passion, full of Antonio's firm belief that cooking, whether for oneself or for family and friends, is one of the most loving of human skills.
