by Sandro Bottega is much more than a recipe book. The bestsellin­g Prosecco winemaker pays tribute to the culinary traditions of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Veneto, evoking its art, heritage, landscape, farmers and producers along the way. Bottega is an avid culinarian, establishi­ng 20 restaurant­s around the world in addition to his wide range of sparkling wines, grappa and liqueurs. Recipes like risotto with Prosecco DOCG, redolent with butter, thyme, extra virgin olive oil and a splash of Prosecco, can be attempted by the amateur cook; while fine dining showstoppe­rs like the marinated musky octopus requires dextrous wrangling and at least 24 hours of preparatio­n. Vivid photograph­s make this a coffee table keeper. €19.90 from bottegaspa.com
