His three previous cookbooks have sold nearly a half-million copies--and this personal collection of restaurateur Umberto Menghi's 150 favorite recipes honors good food, the joy of preparation, and the camaraderie of a shared meal. The Italian spirit suffuses every lush color page as Menghi presents such delicacies as Carpaccio, Artichoke Soup, Tagliatelle with Prawns, Stuffed Calamari, and Gnocchi with Gorgonzola. And, don't forget luscious Italian desserts like Zuccotto, a liqueur-flavored chocolate sponge cake! Wine notes and reminiscences compliment the recipes.
