Italy’s classic recipes are well known the world over, but few are aware of the dishes that reign on the flourishing Italian street-food scene. Hidden behind the town squares, cheese-pancake-frico3away from the touristy restaurants, and down back streets are little-known gems offering up some of Italy’s tastiest and best-kept secret dishes that the locals prize.

ITALIAN STREET FOOD is not just another Italian cookbook; it delves into truly authentic Italian fare—the kind of secret recipes that are passed down through generations. Learn how to make authentic polpettine, arancini, stuffed cuttlefish, cannolis, and fritters, and perfect your gelato-making skills with original flavors such as lemon and basil or affogato and aperol. With beautiful stories and stunning photography throughout, ITALIAN STREET FOOD delivers an authentic, lesser known take on a much loved cuisine.

  1. My husband is Italian and he loves Italian food. The Food that I have tried to make have not turned out well. He bakes better than I and perhaps this would help him in cooking too.


  2. My mouth is watering just looking at it. 🙂 I’m half Italian and grew up with mom and my grandmother cooking feasts every Sunday. Even though they taught me to cook I still can’t produce the tadtes they did. I’d love to add this to my collection of cookbooks as well as trying these dishes.
