Toscanini is an institution in Amsterdam. For those of you who may not know it, it’s one of the best Italian restaurants in the city.

Bernadette and chef/owner Leonardo Pacenti go back a number of years. At one stage, Bernadette made the desserts for the restaurant for a couple of years.

Leonardo has teamed up with Maud Moody and Nina Bogaerts to bring ‘De Bijbel van de Italiaanse Keuken’ or The Italian Kitchen Bible to life.

This comprehensive book covers every aspect of the Italian kitchen, the equipment you need, basic ingredients and the essential recipes that everyone who has an interest in Italian cuisine should know.

Go get yourself a copy while sipping on an espresso and getting some food to go from their new location, Magnani, just a few doors down from the main restaurant.
