Saturday Night Pasta: Recipes and self-care rituals for the home cook

Elizabeth Hewson

This is not a dramatic tale of overcoming incredible adversity. No loves have been lost, no hearts broken. This is a rather ordinary tale of finding myself and forming a ritual of self-care that I like to call Saturday Night Pasta.’

Saturday Night Pasta is therapy for the modern-day food lover, teaching self-care through the humble act of making pasta. Like the practice of meditation, making pasta by hand is a way of achieving self-discovery and mindfulness … with delicious results. Including stories, mantras, step-by-step guides to making different pasta shapes and basic doughs, trouble-shooting tips and 40 utterly mouthwatering recipes (with dried pasta substitutes for the time poor), this is a cookbook to inspire and empower.

Impressive, inspiring and charming - and you end up with Saturday night dinner. This book is so right for our times

- Jill Dupleix, food writer

Ever on the pulse of the zeitgeist, Elizabeth Hewson's Saturday Night Pasta homes in on more than a love of our favourite carb: substantial foods that take time to perfect are nourishment for the soul in times of uncertainty, giving us far more than just a full and happy stomach.

Lizzie is the real deal, a passionate cook who has found a tonic to help deal with our stressful modern world.

- Peter Gilmore, executive chef at Quay and Bennelong
