Venice is the city of Cicchetti, of delicious small bite food, of rich and sumptuous cold cuts, of mouthwatering cheese and above all of fresh fish.

I simply adore Food and above all I adore Cook Books! So here is a Book Spotlight for a very good one by Paola Bacchia. The book ITALIAN STREET FOOD is available now!  And you can try your luck (if you live in the U.S.A.) and try to win one! Look at the end of the post! Enjoy it!


Italian Street Food


Book Description:

Italy’s classic recipes are well known the world over, but few are aware of the dishes that reign on the flourishing Italian street-food scene. Hidden behind the town squares, away from the touristy restaurants, and down back streets are little-known gems offering up some of Italy’s tastiest and best-kept secret dishes that the locals prize.
ITALIAN STREET FOOD is not just another Italian cookbook; it delves into truly authentic Italian fare—the kind of secret recipes that are passed down through generations. Learn how to make authentic polpettine, arancini, stuffed cuttlefish, cannolis, and fritters, and perfect your gelato-making skills with original flavors such as lemon and basil or affogato and Aperol.


With beautiful stories and stunning photography throughout, ITALIAN STREET FOOD delivers an authentic, lesser known take on a much loved cuisine.
