The book

It’s not the first cookbook written by Luigi Pomata, but surely it’s the first one that tells his story from every possible angle. The king of tuna (as he’s usually called) has given and taken a lot from his motherland: Sardinia. He’s taken the local traditions, the most unique products, the house recipes, and from them he’s managed to build a menu that presents different ingredients, and goes from past to present, from less elaborated dishes to truly avant-guarde creations. There’s nothing specific that can define him, not even tuna or cous cous, because Luigi Pomata is all these ingredients put together: he has the creativity of a farmer (his grandfather), the audacity of a restaurant owner (his father) and the foresight of a chef (himself), that keeps portraying the past to the future generations; those ones that will be lucky enough to taste his 25-years-aged tuna.
