More than 120 delicious Italian recipes will feed anyone who comes to the table When an Italian cooks dinner, it's always a meal to savor and enjoy with as many people as can be found to share it with. Gennaro shares his favorite family recipes—the ones that will feed a crowd of hungry guests, from his 90-year-old father to his three-year-old twin girls. Older generations give advice; all hands are on deck to help; and the whole family sit themselves down at the large dining table to join in the feast together. The table is like the altar—to eat, drink, discuss, argue, and confess—but most of all to enjoy the wonderful food! All the recipes cater for large numbers of people, but have tips on how to adapt them for smaller groups. There are hints on how to prepare things in advance, advice on which dishes go with what, and plenty of creative menu ideas. Here is everything a chef needs to transform the kitchen into a little slice of Italy. Includes metric measurements.
