Tobie Puttock's love affair with Italian food began when he was an eighteen-year-old working in Melbourne's acclaimed Caffe e Cucina. The passion flourished as he cheffed his way across Europe, working eighteen-hour days in Italian speaking kitchens, taking time out for snowboarding excursions and the odd very long lunch in a mountainside trattoria. This simple, edgy and energetic cookbook is the result of that experience, with beautifully illustrated photographs it rewrites some of the rules and ignores others. However far it pushes the boundaries of tradition, it sticks closely to the guiding principle of great Italian cuisine- that cooking is, if nothing else, an act of love.
