About this deal
It is so beautifully presented, and also with tips and tricks that will not only improve your cooking, it is just so enjoyable to try. Sheerluxe "This is an ideal cookbook for readers who are looking to create Italian dishes with a contemporary twist. It is definitely this passion that is shared by the whole team, and the sincerity that surrounds the whole process that lets people have such a good time. Italian restaurant group Big Mamma burst onto the London food scene earlier this year with the opening of Gloria , the 70’s Capri-style trattoria in the heart of Shoreditch.
Founded in 2015 by Tigrane Seydoux and Victor Lugger, the restaurants are inspired by their travels from Naples to Milan, as well as Florence and Rome. The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. The book features plenty of classics, such as pizza margherita, pesto sauce, and tiramisu, though they all come with a little Big Mamma magic.
To put it simply : we understand that not taking reservations can be inconvenient for our diners, but we have to weigh this consideration against the fact that we’re trying to offer high value-for-money by squeezing our margins. The recipe on page 108 supplied by Giuseppe Cutraro asked for 250g of flour to 250ml of water this is impossible as it’s 100% hydration . Then the filling 800 ml single cream,80 ml double cream,250 ml mascarpone and 100 g icing sugar -beaten for many,many minutes and not becoming a creme Chantilly (as too much single cream?
A fresh take on one of the world’s most adored cuisines – much-loved classics with creative twists for today's cooks. No giant pepper mills in sight in their restaurants, just classic recipes tweaked and, as the kids say,’kicked up a notch’ or’taken to the next level’. The book’s design is based on the brightly coloured hand-painted ceramics from Fima Deruta that are so loved in all of Big Mamma’s restaurants. In February 2019, they opened their first London restaurant, Gloria in Shoreditch, and shortly after in June 2019 they opened Circolo Popolare in Fitzrovia. Part of Big Mamma’s success in Paris, London and Lille lies in the very personal way they source their ingredients.
If by some miracle you haven’t really cooked Italian food at home, this is a colourful, vibrant way to get started. And take all the risks you want: don’t follow our instructions to the letter, give our twists your own twist, improvise and do things your way. Mauvaise surprise à l'ouverture du manuel, première utilisation, déchirure immédiate de la reliure intérieure de la couverture principale de mauvaise qualité, pas assez bien assemblée et résistante !
