Many countries have shaped Australia’s contemporary identity, but none has had quite the same impact as Italy. In any of our cities it’s easy to find restaurants where pasta is made fresh daily, a woodfired pizza oven crackles in the corner and the staff speaks Italian.
Featuring 80 essential recipes from Australia’s best restaurants, cafes and bars, The Broadsheet Italian Cookbook is the definitive guide to contemporary Italian-Australian dining in all its forms. Each dish is accompanied by a brief interview with the relevant chef and an image taken on location by renowned food photographer Mark Roper.
Recipes span entrees, mains, desserts, sides, antipasti and cocktails. Further chapters offer practical advice on navigating the intimidating worlds of Italian cheese, smallgoods, pasta, tomatoes and wine via easy-to-use glossaries. The Broadsheet Italian Cookbook captures the essence of Italian food culture in Australia and makes a beautiful gift for home cooks and collectors alike.
