About this deal

This cookbook puts a contemporary spin on tradition featuring more than 120 delicious, easy-to-prepare, imaginative recipes.

Each of the 13 locations (nine of which are in Paris) has established itself as a success, assembling lines of people waiting to get in that wrap around the block for each meal service. A selection of icons indicate whether the recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, one-pot, vegan, vegetarian, 30 minutes or less, or 5 ingredients or less. It was a simple enough recipe to follow, though the balls would have benefited from a little seasoning in the breadcrumb mix – or an accompanying recipe for a dip, for that matter.

Contributing to the volume’s lighthearted feel are dishes named after pop culture figures, such as Egg Sheeran (poached eggs with cress cream), Snoop Dogg Pasta (tagliolini with rapini and anchovies), and Daft Punch (fruit punch with prosecco); a variety of witty sidebars (“This dish is perfect for impressing a date. Dishes include classics such as Risotto alla Milanese and Tiramisù, as well as the most creative Italian food today, incluing Burrata Flower Power and Double Choco Love. This fired-up team, with an average age of twenty-four, turns every dish, dessert and cocktail into an incredible journey,” explains our new book.

To keep the big love going at home, the team published its first cookbook, Big Mamma Cucina Popolare: Contemporary Italian Recipes (Phaidon, January 12, 2020). If you want a cookbook that reflects the perfect environment in which to dine with friends and family - in a stimulating and deliciously Italian atmosphere - this is it! now it's released some of the most sought-after recipes from the crowd pleasing menus at both of them.

Yes, some of the recipe names make you want to shout abuse, they’re trying too hard, but the food is just what today’s Instagram eaters want to photograph and possibly might even try to eat before it goes cold.
