Mastering Pasta – Book Review
When you enjoy a meal at a fine dining establishment or watch your favorite cooking shows on television, do you ever wish you had the opportunity to learn the secrets of cooking from a top chef in the culinary world?
Well, if you are a fan of Italian fare and you’d love to explore the world of pasta, your wish is about to come true!
Marc Vetri – the man that James Beard calls “one of the best pasta chefs on the planet” – has recently published Mastering Pasta – The Art and Practice of Handmade Pasta, Gnocchi, and Risotto with David Joachim, a must for any foodie’s book collection!
First things first: Mastering Pasta is more than a recipe book. It’s an embodiment of Marc’s passion, cooking philosophy, and lifetime of culinary knowledge, gathered in one beautifully photographed and highly educational book!
Mastering Pasta is written for those who enjoy reading cookbooks and implementing what they learn – not for those looking to make a quick meal and move on.
It’s written for those who have the time and desire to learn about cooking, particularly home chefs who want to learn how to make pasta and gnocchi by hand, master the technical aspects and techniques of cooking, and work with exotic, high-end ingredients.
As such, this book may not appeal to everyone – but if you fall within Marc’s intended audience you will love it!
I think Mastering Pasta is fabulous and if the thought of handmade pasta, gnocchi or risotto makes you weak in the knees, you will definitely want this book in your kitchen!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
