Arturo Iengo is an experienced chef and restaurateur who has lived and worked in Naples since 1975. Passionate about the area and the food that it is famous for, he has worked for a number of hotels and restaurants, including currently, the Ristorante Pascalucci in Benevento. He is a professional sommelier. He also teaches culinary masterclasses at hotel management schools in Campania.
Books on Italian cooking abound, but few of them focus on the food of Naples. Iengo, a Neapolitan chef, presents 100 recipes for both rustic traditional dishes and more contemporary ones, including, of course, a variety of pizzas (Naples is considered the home of the wood-fired pizza). There are also striking color photographs of the city and its harbor as well as photos of many of the recipes. For larger collections. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
