Le Ricette Regionali Italiane by Frederic Bau “It’s the book you find in every home in Italy. There are no more precise recipes anywhere, and it also teaches you so much about Italian tradition."
“If you start with a great ingredient, half of the cooking is already done. It’s collaborative. All of us cooks talk. Someone has an idea, someone adds to it, and before you know it forms into a dish. From there, it’s just trial and error. It’s all about research."
