Soffritto : A return to Italy, Paperback / softback Book

Soffritto : A return to Italy Paperback / softback


Every Italian cook has a soffritto - the 'starter kit' of olive oil, garlic and herbs from which a great dish is built.

Lucio Galletto was in search of the soffritto of his life. He'd grown up between the tables of a restaurant built by his family on a beach in northwest Italy.

He had moved to Australia for love, and launched two successful restaurants. Now Lucio goes home again to recover what he may have lost in translation - an emotional journey that introduces the fishermen, farmers, cooks, winemakers, shepherds, hunters, waiters and scholars of the region that gave the world pesto, parmesan, prosciutto, ravioli, white truffles and balsamic vinegar.
