Member $39.95
A revised and refreshed edition of the best-selling 2008 publication by Pietro Demaio. Preserving the Italian Way is essential reading for anyone who wants to preserve their own food, reduce food waste and help keep cultural traditions alive. Pietro Demaio has meticulously collected family recipes handed down for generations from nonne and nonni all around Italy. Including how to preserve vegetables and fish in oil, vinegar or salt, how to make cheese, cure meats and dry herbs, and traditional methods for making bread, wine and liqueurs, this is the ultimate recipe collection for preserving enthusiasts. Pietro Demaio is a Melbourne GP with a passion for his Italian heritage and the traditional preserving recipes from his homeland. Pietro's parents emigrated from Calabria to Australia with a 'heart full of traditions, stories, recipes and skills' to help them settle into their new home. Pietro yearned to keep these old traditions alive and pass them on to his three sons, so he embarked on a personal journey to collect and publish preserving recipes not just from his own family, but from Nonne, Nonni and families all over Italy. The result was Preserving the Italian Way, Pietro's love song to his heritage and the childhood dishes he loved to eat. Softcover, 272 pages, 17.5cm x 23.5cm, Plum, 2021.
