We stumbled across this book during a sidewalk sale in Concord, MA. It was on a folding table in front of Concord Cookware. Of course we had to go inside and Alex picked up a few other things but this book was the gem. Pasta Modern, New and Inspired Recipes From Italy, by Francine Segan, photographs by Lucy Schaeffer is the kind of book we love. It is grounded in history and full of creative ideas and interesting (and well written) techniques. This is a book to inspire you to get in the kitchen and start cooking.
Just a few pictures of the photos to tease you along. If you want recipes and more involved techniques you'll have to get your hands on a copy. If you love pasta you should definitely try to find one.
