Freshness, simplicity, generosity, imagination . Buon ricordo is Italian for 'fond memories'. It is also the name of the restaurant in Sydney, Australia, where Armando Percuoco has spent the past 25 years perfecting his unique interpretation of Naples cooking.Now he reveals how the spirit of Italy can bring the family together around the table. From baby pizza to risotto with pears, from scallops with rosemary puree to quails stuffed with grapes, from fig tiramisu to thousand-layer apple cake, Armando turns the most sophisticated restaurant dishes into happy home triumphs.As Armando says: 'I may be doing myself out of a job, but I want to remove the mystique from restaurant food, to make you feel as comfortable in your kitchen as I feel in the kitchen of Buon Ricordo. I think we can rebuild community around the table. And I think Italian food is the way to achieve that. It's the most accessible, generous and participatory cooking style in the world.'
