Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 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!

  • 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!

Publishers Text

Antonio Carluccio began his culinary career over fifty years ago while a student in Vienna. When cooking for himself and his friends on a low budget, he learned the benefits of a basic larder - well stocked with the essentials needed for his favourite Italian dishes - and the importance of buying fresh foods wisely, cheaply and often. His skills were developed from a solid foundation: the years he had spent absorbing lessons from his mother while growing up in Italy. Antonio Carluccio's Simple Cooking is a coming together of all the 'secrets' that Antonio has learned over those fifty years. He is on a mission to instill in his readers the simple pleasure of cooking good fresh food, and to inspire novice cooks with confidence and a repertoire of reliable dishes for all occasions. The recipes included in the book are all 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' a basic recipe and there are also ingenious ideas for using up leftovers.

These are Antonio's favourite recipes, illustrated with fabulous photography from 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.
