The Geometry of Pasta

Front Cover
Boxtree, 2010 - Cookbooks - 288 pages
The Italians have a secret. There are said to be over 300 shapes of pasta, each of which has a history, a story to tell, and an affinity with particular foods. These shapes have evolved alongside the flavours of local ingredients, and the perfect combination can turn an ordinary dish into something sublime. The Geometry of Pasta pairs over 100 authentic recipes from critically acclaimed chef, Jacob Kenedy, with award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand's stunning black-and-white designs to reveal the science, history and philosophy behind spectacular pasta dishes from all over Italy. A striking fusion of design and food, The Geometry of Pasta tells you everything you need to know about cooking and eating pasta like an Italian.
