10/29/15 NOUS READS: Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef

At Osteria Francescana, awarded the world’s 2nd best restaurant this year by San Pellegrino, you get the impression that its chef isn’t interested in fine dining that rests on refinement. The Modena restaurant gets cozy in the restraint of white tablecloths and sleekly suited servers but its dishes exhibit the delightful impishness of a six-year-old—and maybe a few of his cravings, as well.

Serving up the stimulus behind foie gras popsicles or his playful Oops! I Dropped the Lemon Tart is Chef Massimo Bottura’s Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef, published by Phaidon. With recipes to his signature dishes are backstories exhibiting Bottura’s penchant for marrying traditional Italian flavors with contemporary cooking techniques. Often, plates display the result of a childlike imagination bordering on stoner sensibilities (Psychedelic Veal inspired by a Damien Hirst painting, naturally). It’s a good way to pick the brain of a dynamic 21st century Italian chef—one who isn’t as chunky, but whose mind is most certainly obese with ideas.
