The Geometry of Pasta cookbook was inspired by the Italian instinct for matching the right pasta shape with the right sauce. There are said to be more than 300 shapes of pasta, each with its own unique story to tell. These shapes evolved alongside local ingredients, giving them an affinity with particular foods, ensuring the perfect pasta for every recipe. As every Italian knows, the ideal combination can turn an ordinary dish into an extraordinary experience.
