Book Overview

A stylish, transporting pasta master class from New York City's premier pasta chef, with recipes for 40 handmade pasta shapes and 100 Italian American, regional Italian, and modern dishes.

Food trends come and go, but pasta holds strong year after year. Despite its humble ingredients--made of merely flour and water or flour and eggs--the magic, rituals, and art of pasta making span over five centuries. Two ingredients are turned into hundreds of stuffed, rolled, extruded, dried, stamped, and handcut shapes, each with its own unique provenance and enrobed in a favored sauce.

New York City chef Missy Robbins fell in love with Italian food and pasta twenty-five years ago. She has been cooking, researching, and studying her way across Italy ever since, which led her to open two of America's favorite pasta restaurants, Lilia and Misi. With illustrated step-by-step recipes for handmaking forty of the most versatile pasta shapes and one hundred recipes for Italian-American, regional Italian (all regions), and Robbins' own best pasta dishes, plus two dozen vegetable sides, this is the hard-working manual for home cooks who aspire to master the art of pasta cooking.

Whether making pasta sheets for lasagna or stamping out pasta coins for Corzetti with Goat Cheese and Asparagus--or even buying handmade pasta to make Tagliatelle with Porcini, Rosemary, and Read More chevron_right

   Print too small
The author was on CBS. The foodrecipes looked amazing after she did an interview. The book has beautiful pictures and historical information. The print was too small for me to enjoy. I had to come back. The book is very large.

   Wonderful Pasta education tool
This is a great book that tells us everything we need to know about Pasta. You spent a lot of time on this book. It is worth it all. I enjoy the education material about Pasta. I only made pici, ravioli, and gnocchi at this point. I am going to eat wheaties and read this book. If you want to learn how to make pasta correctly, you should start with this book. I wish I had started with this book in the beginning of pasta making. I would be much further along. I didn't know there were pastas. This is a great wedding gift for someone who loves cooking. I have been cooking for a long time and I feel it's time to learn another skill in the kitchen. I love using this educational tool.

   this is the best cookbook I've bought in years
I have so many pasta books that I didn't think I'd want another. I bought it because it looked good in the bookstore and I thought it would look good on the bookshelf. I didn't know how good this book was. There are lots of hints about everything. What equipment to buy, what setting to use on a pasta maker, and reasons behind everything. The recipes are easy to follow and keep me busy, but I'm not intimidated by most of them. I can judge by looking at the classics I've been making. I wish I'd started from here because the recipes are so well explained in this book. I'm going to work my way through this during the year and can't wait to try nearly everything.

A gift for Christmas. I'm sure it will be well received, as it appears to contain all the special bits of knowledge the recipient was looking for.

   Great Reference
I like to make my own food and have made a lot of bread and noodles. If you don't know how to make authentic Italian food, it's not worth it. This is a great book to start with.

   Best pasta book there is for chefs of all levels
Information, recommendations, and substitutions are great. Mossy does. The story was told well and the asp cut to the chase. The pastas have conversions for my kitchen aid attachment and are short on recipes. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but have eaten at Misi a few times and I can't imagine they're not delicious. !

   Great book
It's a great book and I can't wait to make the recipes from it. This will get a lot of use, like her last book.
