Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pasta with smoked pancetta, eggs and pecorino Romano (Spaghetti alla carbonara)

    • LyonGegenheimer on June 07, 2020

      I created my own recipe with this adding a small chicken breast, check my recipe folder. Using 1/2 lb spaghetti, 3 tablespoons butter, 1/2 cup fresh pecorino romano. And most likely 1/3 cup tiny dice pancetta. I flatten the chicken and cooked the chicken breast first, removed, cooled and diced very small tiny bite size, then cooked the pancetta in the pan with the chicken browning (such great extra flavor from that browning). Use the same pan to mix pasta. And reserved then added 1/4 cup pasta water back into the final tossing to make it creamy and slick not sticky and dry.

Publishers Text

'Buonissimo!', Gino's second book builds on the success of his first, 'Fantastico!', which was the perfect introduction to his cooking style. In 'Buonissimo!' Gino shows you how to make food that is simple, sexy, but very, very satisfying. It is his cookbook for the people - because it contains recipes for everybody, whether you live by yourself, with a friend or partner or as part of a big family. Gino believes that food brings people together, and the way the chapters are organised reflects this: 'Facile facile' is full of recipes that take hardly any time or ingredients to make but taste fantastic. The recipes in 'Per Tutti i Giorni' are cosy weekday suppers - quick, easy and perfect for families. For modern life, Gino's recipes are straightforward and unpretentious, focusing on flavour rather than complicated cooking techniques or expensive ingredients.
