ALL ABOUT

PASTA & NOODLES

A fresh and original way to put the classic advice of Joy of Cooking to work -- illustrated and designed in a beautiful and easy-to-use new book.

  • More than 90 sensational recipes, including Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe, Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Goat Cheese Lasagne, and classic Macaroni and Cheese
  • Explanations for 27 different pasta shapes, featuring cooking times, creative substitutions, and appropriate sauces
  • Step-by-step recipes for preparing a wide range of sauces -- from pesto to ragú to Alfredo -- as well as noodles, from Spdtzle to Beef Chow Fun
Sixty years after Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to "Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with Joy of Cooking continues unabated. And why not? Joy in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost a wedding cake. For decades, Joy of Cooking has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged.

All About Pasta & Noodles upholds that standard. While keeping the conversational and instructional manner of the flagship book, All About Pasta & Noodles is organized into chapters that include fresh pasta, sauces, filled and baked pastas, American noodle dishes, Asian noodles, dumplings, and more. The chapters incorporate more than 90 of Joy's best-loved recipes -- Spaghetti alla Carbonara to Spicy Szechuan Noodles to Bolognese Sauce. You'll also find rules for cooking pasta, step-by-step information for making homemade pasta, and suggestions for pasta shapes and sauces. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable.

Whether you belong to one of the millions of American households that already own a copy (or two) of Joy, or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, Joy of Cooking: All About Pasta & Noodles is for you. It is a spectacular achievement, worthy of its name. Joy has never been more beautiful.
