In Pasta Modern, Italian food authority Francine Segan challenges the notion that pasta must be traditional or old-world. In this beautifully photographed cookbook, Segan details the hottest, newest, and most unusual pasta dishes from Italy's food bloggers, home cooks, artisan pasta makers, and vanguard chefs. The 100 distinctive pasta recipes, including many vegan and vegetarian specialties, range from simple and elegant (Gemelli with Caramelized Oranges and Crispy Pancetta) to more complex (Neapolitan Carnevale Lasagna) to cutting-edge (Cappuccino Caper Pasta). Tips and anecdotes culled from Segan's Italian travels enhance the easy-to-follow directions, and a glossary of more than 50 extraordinary dried pastas showcases shapes to revive any pasta lover's repertoire. For contemporary, authentic Italian pasta, Pasta Modern is the go-to guide.

Praise for Pasta Modern:

"She lives up to her own billing, well demonstrating a ‘fierce, profound, and zealous reverence for Italian pastas.'" —Booklist (starred review)
