Authority on Italian food and opera

One of the trailblazing books about Italian food as a product of regional and local history, agriculture and heritage. Kasper takes recipes that are often complicated to prepare and requiring ingredients that must be perfect for the dish to succeed and miraculously makes them work thanks to superb cooking skills and a clear writer’s voice. The fact that the cuisine comes from Emilia-Romagna, a region with a rich larder and matchless food wisdom, means that the author had a superb subject to address and she did honour to it.
