I don't have much time but I am surprised this book isn't getting more reviews. When it first came I looked through and thought, "maybe there's not so much in this one from Domenica", but once I got time to take a look through, I made four things from the book the first weekend I played with it. All were interesting and so easy, I even was making them in a relative's kitchen with rudimentary equipment. The recipes don't necessarily look that different if you have a lot of italian cookbooks (as I do), but she adds little twists to each that are really interesting with so little work. The title "Rustic Italian" is a bit overplayed these days so maybe that's why more people aren't reviewing this little gem. It's a winner and I will be keeping it handy!-Eat&run
Excellent recipes. Well explained. We love this book.-Pally
I have made the carrot and squash soup which was nice and thick and good for autumn days in the north. Also pork scaloppine with marsala sauce. Sauce was great but i think i would do it with veal, instead of the pork. The salad with fennel, endive, hearts of palm, and farro is excellent!-Marlye Barbe
