Synopsis

BACK IN THE DAYS WHERE ADVERTISING WAS SOMETHING SELDOM SEEN AND RARELY HEARD, WHEN QUALITY AND NOT QUANTITY WAS THE NAME OF THE GAME, WHAT DID OUR GRANDMOTHERS AND GRANDFATHERS COOK IN THEIR DAILY LIVES? AND WHAT COULD WE LEARN FROM THEM? WHATS LEFT OF THE CULINARY HERITAGE OF NAPLES, WITH ITS INVENTIVE DISHES, SO INEXTRICABLY TIED TO THE FRUITS OF OUR LANDS AND SEAS? TODAYS HUSTLE AND BUSTLE, WITH ITS EVER-TICKING CLOCK, PREVENTS US FROM REALIZING JUST HOW EASY IT IS TO CAST ASIDE THE PRE-PACKAGED RUBBISH WE EAT ON THE REGULAR, AND MAKES US FORGET OUR TRADITIONS IN COOKING. THE INTERNET AND TELEVISION REGULARLY BLAST US WITH IMAGES OF COMPLEX, VISUALLY APPEALING DISHES, PREPARED BY ACCLAIMED CHEFS USING STATE-OF-THE-ART, CUTTING-EDGE IMPLEMENTS. THIS BOOK IS MEANT TO BE A SIMPLE TOOL, TO USE WHEN YOU WANT TO REDISCOVER THE LOST FLAVOURS OF OLD, A TIDY INDEX TO GUIDE YOU AND HELP YOU ENJOY THE HUMBLE, EXQUISITE PRODUCTS OF OUR REGION. A HUNDRED RECIPES, ACCURATELY DESCRIBED IN DIFFERENT PASSAGES, WITH EVERYDAY INGREDIENTS, A DRIZZLE OF BYGONE MEMORIES, A HANDFUL OF FOOTNOTES ON HISTORY, PLENTY OF FUN FACTS, A PINCH OF INFORMATION AND BURNING, SIZZLING PASSION.
