Pasta et Al, the father and son team of Alec Morris and his boys, Aldo and Elio, cook fresh pasta every Sunday, recreating the Italian classics handed down by Alec's Nonna.
Celebrate one of life's simplest pleasures in Pasta et Al: The Many Shapes of a Family Tradition, a joyous cookbook featuring 60 classic recipes for handmade pasta.
Alec Morris was taught how to cook fresh pasta by his nonna as a child, and now carries on the tradition every Sunday with his young sons, Aldo and Elio. The weekly family ritual became a successful blog, which grew into an international community drawn together by an irresistible blend of recipes served with a pinch of humor, plenty of heart, and some delightfully meddling little hands.
Join Al, Al and El and discover how to make over 30 different pasta doughs and 42 different pasta shapes – long, short, big and flat, small and squishy, and filled – with step-by-step tutorials and a range of delicious recipes from recipes from green lasagne to spiralled cappellacci, showstopping agnolotti and the perfect carbonara.
This vividly photographed, brilliantly written guide is a snapshot of love and loss, old traditions and new beginnings, and treasured Italian cooking. Pasta et Al will inspire new and seasoned pasta-makers alike to create memorable traditions of their own.
