Everything looks as good as the photo, and tastes like Grandma made it

3 couples spent ten days in a house in Italy - we cooked all our meals, using this cookbook. Every meal was better than the next, even my first try at homemade pasta. Everything turned out like its picture, and we kept saying, "This tastes like what my Grandma made!" When we got home, we each bought a copy, and several for gifts. Don't let out-of-print stop you - get a used copy and enjoy! Simple ingredients, simple instructions, fantastic taste. It's printed for American cooks, in American/English measurements.

Most satisfied with both book and shipping

I was very satisfied with the timely arrival of the book as well as the excellent quality of it--practically new!


Can't get a better book for simple Italian cooking. Particularly if you want "real" Italian food. The pictures are great as well.

This is the best cookbook I own.

I collect cookbooks and especially love Italian ones (both of my parents grew up in Italy). When my friend bought this for me, I was hesitant that a "sale table" book would be any good. Oh, how wrong I was. Every recipe I've tried from this book has the approval of my Italian-raised mom (a big deal to me) and the adoration of my non-Italian foodie friends, as well. The step-by-step pictures help me make sure I'm "on track" with any new recipe and the gorgeous food pictures certainly encourage me to try new recipes, as well. My favorites: Parmesan Risotto Suppli Baked eggs with tomatoes The bolognese is good and I've been tweaking the recipe each time to get it closer to my Nonna's recipe, but even straight out the gate it was a pretty good facsimile.

Excellent and informative

This is a very pretty and priacticle book. Full of color illustrations and recipes. A must for all italian cooks. The book itseld is very nice looking, sleek and sturdy.
