There’s something about the “Made in Italy” label that summons an aura of luxury and indulgence. But when stamped on a cookbook, it means quite the opposite.
Italian cooking is a complete paradox to the rest of their culture. The “bella figura” as David Rocco says, are complete traditionalists when it comes to food. The Made in Italy stamp on a bag of pasta means homemade, fresh, and simple, and that’s exactly the philosophy that David Rocco’s cookbook takes on.
After only moments of flipping through the cookbook, what seems an endless memoir of sweeping Italian landscapes, adventure, and unconventionally mouthwatering food, I've already scouted out some dishes I can't wait to try out. This book will most certainly be keeping my family and I company at the kitchen table all winter long.
