With beautiful evocative photographs by Matt Russell, this cookbook is full of personal stories and Joseph's unique knowledge of Italian food and ingredients. This is a cookbook everyone should have in their kitchen.

In an effort to catch up with more topical recipes, I heard that Joe Trivelli, head chef at the River Café, was the one to bring my Italian cooking into the 21st century. So it has proved, though there is also a delightful number of his grandmother’s and auntie’s recipes here as well, albeit many that are new to me. A nice addition to the many Italian cookbooks I already have.
