A stunning fusion of good food and good design: over 100 recipes for how to
marry the right pasta shape with the perfect sauce.
The Geometry of Pasta = The Perfect shape + The Perfect Sauce.
Pasta is a simple thing but getting it absolutely right depends as much on choosing the best pasta shape for the sauce as on cooking it properly.
by Caz Hildebrand, Jacob Kenedy
The Italians have a secret. Over the centuries, they have pioneered more than 300 shapes of pasta, each with a history, a story to tell, and an affinity for particular foods. These shapes have evolved alongside the flavors of local ingredients, and the perfect combination can turn an ordinary dish into something sublime. The Geometry of Pasta pairs more than one hundred 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.
Packaged in a crisply designed black-and-white hardcover (complete with a dust jacket that unfolds into a poster of pasta shapes and patterns), The Geometry of Pasta is a one-of-a-kind cookbook unlike anything you've ever seen!
Caz Hildebrand is an award-winning graphic designer who has produced cookbooks for Nigella Lawson, Moro, and other acclaimed chefs.
Chef Jacob Kenedy is the co-owner of Bocca di Lupo, which was recently voted London's best restaurant by both Time Out magazine and the Evening Standard.
