First things first, this is not a cookbook. Instead, Pasta by Design aims to show a ‘totally fresh and idiosyncratic look at pasta’. The book profiles 92 kinds of pasta, explaining the origins, the way its made, how to prepare them perfectly and renders each one into an equation. It’s the sort of book we never knew we needed until now. From Magma Books. Available from Amazon.
