The word Cibo literally translates to food in the Italian language. That is why Chef Michael Ponzio chose Cibo as the title of this book. After training under great chefs from all over Italy and America, Chef Ponzio has combined his knowledge and training to supply you with a variety of Italian recipes from rustic antipasti and risotti to new age seafood and meat presentations. Cibo provides its readers with a broad range of culinary techniques such as making dough, homemade pastas, sausage and pastries. Both professional and home cooks alike welcome Cibo as a reference tool for Italian cooking.
