Jamie Oliver's Food Tube presents The Pasta Book, jam-packed with simple, seasonal recipes, plus all the need-to-know basics from Jamie's own Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo.
'Enjoy this pocket-sized cookbook, full of incredible, achievable pasta recipes, from the very basics to kick-ass dishes for any night of the week. Buon appetite!' - Jamie Oliver
Whatever your ability in the kitchen, pasta is often a staple mid-week supper. This book will help to re-vamp your repertoire. It's full of delicious, simple, seasonal recipes such as:
- Wild Rocket & Pecorino Orecchiette
- Summer Vegetable Cappellacci
- Autumnal Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle
- Wintery Game Ragu
- Gennaro's take on classic favourites such as Carbonara and Bolognese.
If you really want to be adventurous, there is always the option to learn about making pasta from scratch, but the recipes are equally tasty with dried pasta.
Branded the man who taught Jamie Oliver everything he knows about Italian food, Gennaro's passion for cooking began at an early age. Raised in Minori, Southern Italy, Gennaro grew up eating fresh, seasonal produce and learning how to make every variation of Italian pasta. As well as owning and running some of the UK's best Italian restaurants, he has made copious television appearances, including on the series 'Two Greedy Italians' with good friend Antonio Carluccio. Gennaro's larger than life personality and simple recipes have made him a YouTube success, with over 100,000 subscribers and more than 1 million views across his online content.
