Evan Funke, chef of LA’s critically acclaimed Felix Trattoria, offers a master class on handmade pasta in his debut cookbook.

Classically trained in Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy, Evan teaches home cooks how to recreate his impeccable dishes using traditional Italian pasta-making methods. Focusing on 15 pasta shapes, Evan walks readers through each stage of the process with step-by-step photography, from fundamentals such as shaping orecchiette and cutting pappardelle to the proper way to blanch, dry, and preserve pasta. Recipes for finished dishes accompany each shape, rounding out each section with accessible, generous meals.

With evocative photography from Felix, detailed process shots, beautiful finished dishes, and sweeping atmospherics from Italy, this book is an ode to Italian food and the art of handmade pasta.

Danny Meyer, James Beard award-winning restaurateur and author
