About the book:
This book contains eighty-five recipes from Italy’s street food scene, which I researched in December 2015 on a whirlwind tour up and down the boot of Italy. Once back at home I cooked and tested the best recipes that I had tasted, and with the help of a large group of recipe testers, my husband (who ate street food for months) and my neighbours who shared all the leftovers. The book is a journey and story into the rhythm of the daily life of locals who love eating on the street, in laneways and in hole-in-the-wall bars. It is told through those who prepare the street food such as il fornaio (the baker); il poliparo (who prepares fish and seafood), il porchettaio (who prepares all manner of meats), il gelataio, these days university-trained and the maker of ice-creams and la nonna, who taught them all the basics of the food they love. Recipes include authentic polpettine, arancini, fiadoni, zeppole, tarallini and cannoli. All recipes, food photography, food styling and the majority of the street photography is mine.
