Right, one of the cheflads here with a bit of homework to do. Though it might be a bit of a scandalous confession here, my roots are deeply in french cooking, that's what I do, and it's what I know.

A friend of mine wants some help with his Italian venture, and I'm suddenly very conscious I just don't know that much about it. Yes, I know a fair few italian styles and techniques, but I don't have a full sense of the culture like I do with traditional french stuff.

So, I'm asking you, dear britfa.gs, to chuck me a list of books, recipe or otherwise, that can help me swot up and get a broad feel for the style, so I'm not completely out of my depth and trying to make spaghetti bourguignon or something.

Good luck but pretty much every restaurant is doomed to fail pretty fast.

I like that, though to be honest that's all stuff I knew already, which is sort of reassuring. I've been up all night researching now, and it's pretty clear that italian cooking is a state of mind more than a set of rules. I like it.


Thanks lad. I didn't know restaurants were a volatile business. I'll keep an eye out.

There's no need for sarcasm, for individuals it's a huge investment and often a poor one and that should be at the forefront of anyone's mind when undertaking it.

Sorry, it's just like telling a rally driver he moght crash, anyone who does it for a living is well aware.

Anyway, I don't have a financial stake in it, I'm just there to guide his team to glory, or shutting in six months, we'll see.
