The board of directors of UCMed - Università della Cucina Mediterranea this year honored me by re-publishing the second edition of my last Cook Book: " The Naples Chef Cooks - Pasta & first courses: 51 Italian Recipes".

If you are interested in purchasing one or more copies please contact me directly at the following e-mail address: sergiocorbino(at)gmail(dot)com and I will be very glad to send you all the details (25% off) .

A few hundreds copies are already "at work" in american kitchens, as a Christmas gift by a leading Italo - Californian wine producer!

Here you are a brief description of the book and of.. myself!

The Naples Chef Cooks: Pasta and First Course – 51 Italian Recipes is the result of Sergio Corbino’s vast experience as a cookbook author, food columnist, television commentator, and – above all – a veteran chef. Here Sergio Corbino has chosen from the hundreds of recipes in his six published cookbooks, fifty-one pasta and first course dishes that are both delicious and simple to prepare. Special attention has been paid to selecting recipes whose ingredients are easy to find, and a helpful glossary offers shopping advice, cooking tips and other practical information. As an added convenience for the cook each recipe also provides measurements in both the metric and America systems, a difficulty level and an estimate of preparation and cooking times. The Naples Chef Cooks is intended for all those who love Italian food, and especially for those who already know (or are about to have the pleasure of discovering) the flair that Neapolitans bring to the kitchen.
That's me with my top level cooking students
