About this deal

And in contrast with recent successful restaurant cookbooks ( The Quality Chop House; St John), the recipes don’t translate well to a domestic kitchen. In addition to popular Italian staples, such as bruschetta with caponata, margherita pizza, and veal saltimboca, there are dozens of dishes that have a distinctive twist like pasta with chickpeas and shrimp, beetroot risotto with yogurt sauce, and peach and pistachio panna cotta.

With a focus on simple techniques with clever twists, plus tips from the Big Mamma chefs, Big Mamma Cucina Popolare is a vibrant, exciting, and contemporary spin on traditional Italian dishes. Big Mamma Cucina Popolare: Contemporary Italian Recipes features 130 of the best recipes from the Big Mamma team. Indeed, expect recipes for favorite menu items like “big lasagna” and tiramisu, plus creations like “insane insalata,” “baby pizza,” and “crispy chicken alla parmigiana. Having said that, we snaffled them within minutes of them coming out of the pan, scalding our mouths on the oozing cheese.

The book, which features 130 recipes, “was written with the intention of revealing some of the best-kept secrets of our team, our dishes, our chefs,” notes the introduction. Though deep-fried mozzarella balls was a rather basic recipe to choose, the promise of a hot, crunchy, cheesy snack was too much to resist.

The famed Italian group burst onto the London food scene to critical acclaim earlier this year with the opening of Gloria, the 70’s Capri-style trattoria in the heart of Shoreditch.It offers, among other things, our Carbonara served in a pecorino wheel, Neapolitan pizzas with Italian ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella – and to top it off, our scandalous desserts featuring our caramelised, chocolate covered profiterole and famous zingy lemon pie, size XXL.

Mauvaise surprise à l'ouverture du manuel, première utilisation, déchirure immédiate de la reliure intérieure de la couverture principale de mauvaise qualité, pas assez bien assemblée et résistante !

Adding instant coffee to the praline at the point of blitzing the hazelnut brittle, however, resulted in a slightly sour, bitter aftertaste, so I remade this without the coffee. Yet the book also is filled with fun, contemporary takes on Italian cuisine, that are easy to follow, and even easier to enjoy. You'll have seen the cheese wheel carbonara on Instagram, heard about the 10-level lasagne from excited friends, and read about the mountainous lemon meringue pie in restaurant reviews. The restaurants are famed in France for their iconic queues around the block, for their 100% homemade and generous food, smiles and the vibe of a crazy and charming young Italian team. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

To determine the full amount of time it will take to cook something, you can’t simply at the times, because, with something like chocolate mousse, you can bake the hazelnut topping while the mousse chills. Zuppa di pomodoro; pizz’n’roll (rolled pizza with fontina cheese); melanzane in carrozza (aubergine fritters with provolone cheese and tomato confit); carpaccio Sorrentino (beef carpaccio with courgettes and almonds); pasta e ceci con gamberi (pasta with chickpeas and prawns); big lasagna; the incredible lemon pie. Since the publisher's founding in Vienna in 1923, Phaidon has sold more than 42 million books worldwide.

The Piedmont region was inspiration for the plin (a type of ravioli stuffed with ragout and sage, see the recipe for the Plin Piemontesi, page 150), for its incredible hazelnuts, its deserts, and its Bonet, an extraordinarily delicious traditional chocolate flan (see the recipe for the Bonet Piemontese, page 310). It can be heated and used to make quick and tasty tomato sauces to serve with fried or scrambled eggs, meats and much more. Otherwise, a bruschetta, like the gogonzolina with grapes and gorgonzola (and because you have to open a bottle of Chianti anyway to perfect the recipe). This cookbook puts a contemporary spin on tradition featuring more than 120 delicious, easy-to-prepare, imaginative recipes. You may have enjoyed their flair and fare at Gloria in Shoreditch; Pink Mamma, East Mamma or Ober Mamma in Paris; or indeed any of their other places.
