Serafina was conceived while Vittorio and Fabio were lost at sea in a small sailboat. Managing severe weather and hunger, the two stranded friends vowed to open a restaurant serving the best pasta and pizza in the world if they were to survive their ordeal. In 1995, they fulfilled their promise by launching the highly acclaimed Serafina in New York City. Following its success, they have gone on to open restaurants around the world from Dubai to Japan. In Serafina, the cookbook, easy-to-follow steps bring to the table centuries of regional culinary history and local traditions and include knowledge that generations of farmers, fishermen, tomato growers, olive-oil millers, bread bakers, and winemakers have devoted to their craft. The book features more than 100 modern takes on traditional recipes and is beautifully illustrated throughout.
