Summary

For nearly twenty years Coral Gables's Caffeacute; Abbracci has boasted a chic clientele and excellent cuisine. This illustrated cookbook features recipes for over 100 of its best and most popular dishes, from appetizers to desserts, along with tales of the gracious host and owner's life. There are simple recipes like Crostini with Pear and Prosciutto, the sea and land flavors of Oysters with Gorgonzola Sauce, soups, salads, and of course excellent pasta dishes, desserts--including a superb tiramisu--and much more to round out any home cook's repertoire. A native of Lake Garda in Northern Italy, Nino Pernetti is a brilliant restaurateur and a talented businessman. Two things stood central even to his earliest memories: good food and good people. His love of both kept him traveling to and working in France, Afghanistan, South Korea, Malaysia, and Mexico, to fall in love at long last with Miami--a city he could call home.
