Gennaro's cucina : hearty money-saving meals from an Italian kitchen

Contaldo, Gennaro2022
Books, Manuscripts
In an era of excessive convenience and disposable food waste, Gennaro's Cucina could not come at a better time - you will learn how to use simple ingredients in inventive ways, eat seasonally, spend less and, ultimately, eat better. 'Cucina povera' is the food that traditionally fed the poor of Italy yet remains the basis of most Italian dishes we love to eat today. It's a simple philosophy - delicious, hearty meals using accessible and affordable ingredients. Encouraging an ethos of zero waste, Gennaro's Cucina ensures that every part of the ingredient, and your budget, is put to good culinary use. Along with the majority of post-war Italian families, a young Gennaro was raised on a diet harvested on a limited budget. Restricted choice of scarce ingredients meant they learnt the value what they had, how to cook dishes lovingly and use imaginative methods of preservation to make simple dishes go far: including salting, drying and curing.
