'As I collected the recipes for dishes that I remember eating as a toddler, as a school boy and at countless family celebrations, I developed a fascination for the stories behind the recipes. And of course, all this led me back to my mother's kitchen table.' Guy Grossi's parents emigrated from northern Italy to Melbourne in 1960, finding themselves in a country that was beginning to embrace other cultures. While his father worked as a chef, his mother turned out the pastas, braises, soups and puddings she had learnt growing up in Verona and in Milan, which sustained the hungry family of six. As a young boy Guy learnt from his mother how to knead pagnotta , roll gnocchi and whisk the zabaglione , and it is this food that has been the inspiration for his cooking ever since. This personal collection of more than 100 family recipes and stories, stunningly photographed by Sharyn Cairns, is an invitation to cook the way the Grossi family do.
