The book pictured above is Italy The Country And Its Cuisine written by Ingeborg Pils and Stefan Palmer with photographs by Martin Kurtenbach. (2010, ISBN 978-1-4075-4757-2 )
If you think you can work your way through this thick folio sized book in one weekend, with 450 recipes and an explanation how to eat the true Italian way, then the answer is NO DICE! Every page and every story is a sheer delight, and selecting something to eat for my readers is really not an easy task.
Until, I got to this chapter which explains cooking in parchment paper, and I just knew that anyone could enjoy this. Next, a great food, found in about every bar in Italy, is the Tramezzini. These small fancy little bite size sandwiches can be served to your guests at pool side, or at a party. They are easy to make, good looking and an authentic taste of Italy with no limit to your imagination. First I will show you the photos, then at the end of the post the recipes.
