I appreciate the research and time that went into putting the book together and the recipes, history, and background information are all excellent. I am enjoying this book very much.-depuccetti
This is an interesting cookbook, in that it is really a tour of Italy. The recipes are divided into2 or 3 areas in 12 different regions of central and southern Italy, there are main dishes and desserts, some soups and side dishes. These are not the easiest recipes in the world to prepare, so this is definitely not a book for beginning cooks. There are just a few pictures of the finished dishes; most of the photos are of the people and ingredients and the countryside and towns they inhabit. Dedicated cooks who want to delve deeper into Italian cuisine and are already experienced will find this appealing. There are few diagrams or pictures of rolling out or preparing the different pastas. There are recipes that included wild boar, figs, quail, rabbit and pheasant as ingredients.-Wogan
There are some really unique recipes here. Also, there are stories of the author's experiences, stories of restaurant owners, descriptions of regions etc. that make you feel like you are reading a novel rather than a dry cook book. The regions of Italy covered here are seldom visited by tourists and therefore it is easy to miss out on the experience. This book takes you closer to that life.-Ah1234
