3. An Authentic Italian Cookbook from one of our favorite Italian chefs, Massimo Bottura

In 2015, on our honeymoon, we visited the world renowned Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy from Chef, Massimo Bottura. The meal was an experience we will never forget. Osteria Francescana is Italy’s most celebrated restaurant. We picked up a copy of Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef, which is a tribute to Bottura’s twenty-five year career and the evolution of Osteria Francescana. The book features 50 recipes and accompanying texts explaining Bottura’s inspiration, ingredients and techniques. its the perfect gift for Dad (aka Italian chef).
