The Italians Have a Secret . . . There are said to be over 300 shapes of pasta, each of which has a history, a story to tell, and an affinity with particular foods. These shapes have evolved alongside the flavours of local ingredients, and the perfect combination can turn an ordinary gift into something sublime. The Geometry of Pasta pairs over 100 authentic recipes from critically acclaimed chef, Jacob Kenedy, with award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand's stunning black-and-white designs to reveal the science, history and philosophy behind spectacular pasta dishes from all over Italy. A striking fusion of design and food, The Geometry of Pasta tells you everything you need to know about cooking and eating pasta like an Italian. Praise for The Geometry of Pasta: 'Really delicious, authentic pasta recipes' Jamie Oliver 'The most delicious foodie publication of the year' GQ 'A maddeningly lovely book' Stephen BayleyIt was conceived by Caz, the graphic designer, in whose mind it grew over a period of more than five years before she first discussed it with me. Kudos is due. The selection of pastas, writing and recipes are all my own, but again I cannot take all the credit. ... I was struck not only by the recipes and the entertaining text, but also the pure, graphic style of the illustrated instructions for making stuffed pasta.
