Book DescriptionIn a unique collaboration, Christian Teubner, the master pastry chef and world-renowned food photographer; Silvio Rizzi, European gourmet and food critic; and Tan Lee Leng, Chinese chef and food writer, have combined their knowledge and skills to produce this definitive cookbook: The Pasta Bible. The title of this book is no idle boast, for it is the most complete illustrated publication on Italian pasta and Oriental noodles that has ever been published in a single volume. Every conceivable type of pasta and noodle is described in the text and illustrated in the photographs. In addition to the comprehensive directory of dried noodles, pastas, gnocchi, and even dumplings – pasta secca – there are step-by-step instructions for making, cutting, and shaping fresh pastas – pasta fresca – at home. More than 150 recipes for soups and sauces, and pasta and noodle meals with cheese, vegetables, fish, meat, game, and poultry, and over 1,000 specially commissioned color photographs make it not only a valuable practical book for the kitchen but also a handsome gift for a friend or family member.
This is the summary of The Pasta Bible: The Definitive Sourcebook, With Over 1,000 Illustrations by Christian Teubner, Silvio Rizzi, Tan Lee Leng.
Penguin Australia's head of publishing, Bob Sessions, acknowledged the proofreader for the Pasta Bible should have picked up the error, but called it nothing more than a 'silly mistake'.
Meanwhile, the clean-up operation continues, with the publisher releasing a rather more emollient statement on its website offering sincere apologies "for any offence this error may have caused readers", and suggesting that proofreaders "would have been concentrating on checking quantities, a common source of error in cookbooks". Penguin also offered to "willingly replace a copy of The Pasta Bible owned by anyone who feels uncomfortable about having a copy of the book in their possession".
