5.0 out of 5 stars What Italian food is all about 26 Dec 2009
By Jardiniere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
At first glance, you will realize this is no ordinary cookbook. The recipes are arranged by seasonal menus, and there are no pictures of any of the completed dishes. One actually needs to sit down and read this book to get the full scope of its genius. Anna Del Conte gives an essay on each menu and additionally includes tips on advance preparation for each dish. Each dish I have tried is truly sensational. The menus are so very well thought out, that you will be wanting to have guests over to partake this authentic Italian cuisine.

My favorites include Chicken Liver Canapes, Pasta with Chickpeas, Fish Lasagne, Leek and Rice Torta, Baked Ziti with Eggplant, Beet Salad with Grapefruit and Watercress, Eggplant Canneloni, Roast Stuffed Turkey, Venison Stew with Onions . . . I could go on and on. I've had this book for over 10 years, and it is invaluable. There are, no doubt, flashier Italian cookbooks on the market, but this one is the only one you will need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 21 Sep 2012
By jannielane - Published on Amazon.com
I have had this cookbook for at least 15 years, and never grow tired of it. I have not tried every recipe, but every recipe I have tried is satisfying. The recipes are arranged by season and within the season by menus for particular occasions. However, it is easy enough to mix and match recipes to create your own meals, should you find dishes in a menu that do not appeal to you (too many chicken liver recipes for me). I particularly love "Manzo alla California," the most indulgent pot roast imaginable. Several years ago, I compiled a menu for my gourmet group entirely from this cookbook, and every dish was excellent. Recipes are straightforward and do not require extraordinary cooking skills. Introductions to menus and recipes reminisce about the author's life, and are friendly and encouraging. It's a nice book to read and an even nicer book to cook from, as the stains on several pages of my copy show.

Some wonderful recipes, I made and really enjoyed the tomato and Carrot Soup. This book is really worth having on serious cook's bookshelf, as it's loaded with good recipes.
