Bottega Owner and Managing Director Sandro Bottega has penned a tribute to Italy’s Prosecco hills and the “straightforward, hard-working” people who live there.

The 100 Prosecco Recipes: Sandro Bottega offers readers a culinary and cultural journey through the Prosecco region

The 100 Prosecco Recipes, which is published in English by Mondadori, offers a culinary journey through the Prosecco area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Veneto region, 50km north of Venice.

The collection of recipes – from aperitifs to desserts – is accompanied by local tales as Bottega pays homage to the region’s culinary traditions and the people who have created and preserved the region’s culture.

The book highlights a creative cuisine which combines nature, agriculture and animal husbandry with flavours, fragrances and new cooking methods, all based on “simplicity and genuineness”. It also underlines Bottega’s pride in Prosecco’s food and wine, its landscape, technology and artistic heritage.

Sandro Bottega was born in 1963 and, from an early age, followed in his father’s footsteps to work in the family distillery and help build a company that is recognised as a leader in the Italian grappo and prosecco markets.
