Renowned chef Alessandro Pavoni, of Sydney's two-chef-hatted Ormeggio at the Spit, hails from Lombardy, home to some of Italy's most famous dishes, including osso bucco, bollito misto and panettone. In his first cookbook Alessandro reveals the secrets to these traditional classics, along with more than 100 of his treasured family recipes featuring Lombardy's rich produce – cave-aged cheeses and cured meats, polenta, tender spit-roasted meat and risotto made from rice grown on the plains of the River Po. Having learnt to cook as a boy standing by his Nonna's side, Alessandro understood, from an early age, the power of food to nourish and bring joy. This passion continues to inspire him to create delicious, comforting dishes that will bring a little bit of Lombardy into your own home.
