About this deal

In addition to popular Italian staples, such as bruschetta with caponata, margherita pizza, and veal saltimboca, there are dozens of dishes that have a distinctive twist like pasta with chickpeas and shrimp, beetroot risotto with yogurt sauce, and peach and pistachio panna cotta.

It needed seasoning, plus a little sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes, but the end result was nice enough. Though deep-fried mozzarella balls was a rather basic recipe to choose, the promise of a hot, crunchy, cheesy snack was too much to resist. 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). Since avoiding gimmicky names proved impossible, I went for the recipes that sounded doable, tasty and vaguely Italian. Big Mamma plans to fill the world with the tastes and aromas of Italy, one restaurant and one cookbook at a time.A satisfyingly big book, this collection of’contemporary Italian recipes’ contains over 130 tasty dishes from the very successful Italian restaurant group. Publishers Weekly "Big Mammaincludes 130 recipes inspired by its chefs who contributed dishes [with] silly names that reinforce the company motto to embrace food - and life - joyfully.

Restaurant magazine "This cookbook is good for anyone who got that taste of Big Mamma food and just can't get enough. French owners, Italian staff, ingredients imported from Italy, an atmosphere of optimism and glee currently in short supply on this side of the channel.The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. Same goes for those groan-inducing dad-joke dish titles like Poulpilove, Elton Mess, Purple Rice and Dipsy Winky.
