Pure Italian Cuisine makes it possible that the dishes to be found at Roberto's Amsterdam can now be prepared at home.

Roberto Payer is the ambassador of the Italian cucina in the Netherlands, and in conversation with cookery book expert Jonah Freud he acquaints you with the various Italian regions where the ingredients for the recipes and the wines to accompany the dishes come from.

At Roberto's Amsterdam, Roberto Payer is the 'godfather' of the restaurant, and the pure and mouth-watering food is cooked by the team led by head chef Franz Conde.

Conde's recipes are accompanied by wine tips, and a great deal of attention is paid to the purity of the ingredients. The book of course contains recipes for soups (zuppe), starters (antipasti), pastas and risottos (primi), main courses of fish and meat (secondi) and side dishes (contorni), together with information about cheeses, ice cream and granita.

Each recipe is easily made at home, and the wonderful photography by Jan Bartelsman will inspire you to get cooking straight away.

It was Roberto Payer's idea to establish a restaurant in the Hilton Amsterdam where pure Italian food is served. This concept of the better Italian restaurant can now be implemented worldwide in Hilton Hotels.

20 years ago Roberto Payer established restaurant Roberto's. He is one of the most famous Italians in Holland and is the director of Hilton Amsterdam and Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam. He is the president of the Italian chamber of commerce in The Netherlands.
