The Geometry of Pasta- 09.22.10

geometryofpasta0.jpg The Geometry of Pasta ~ The Perfect Shape. The Perfect Sauce. I’m in love with this book. Geometric shapes ~ flat black and white graphics ~ its even perfect for babies! And you get the history of various pasta shapes as well as sauce recipes that pair perfectly with its exquisite shape. “The Geometry of Pasta pairs over 100 authentic recipes from critically acclaimed chef, Jacob Kenedy, with award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand’s stunning black-and-white designs to reveal the science, history and philosophy behind spectacular pasta dishes from all over Italy. A stunning fusion of design and food, The Geometry of Pasta tells you everything you need to know about cooking and eating pasta like an Italian.”

It’s really such a beautifully designed book, and everyone from college kids who may just be toying with feeding themselves to chefs, would have a great time with this one, it’s definitely going on my list for fun designer gifts. I’ve never unwrapped a book and been so tempted to frame up the dust jacket, but this one is just stunning!

Awesome teaser? “Plans are underway to launch a series of products inspired by The Geometry of Pasta featuring the distinctive graphic style used in the book, from an iphone app to kitchenwares and a range of pastas and sauces.”

So take a look at some of my favorite pages in the book on the next page! As well as a giant chart of pasta shapes!

this comment can’t be so amusing though …
did you folks give this book to the proofreader
prior to giving it to the printing ?
Not to the italian proofreader, i bet.
…. else, it’s about time to fire him/her.
:-)
Shouldn’t it be “Anellini” instead of “Annellini” ?

I saw a tv show last week about this. It wasn’t as exciting as your writing.
