Book Description

1 Oct 2007

A sumptuous collection of mouth-watering recipes, heart-warming anecdotes and vibrant photography that bring the warmth of Italy to your kitchen table. Blending the character of Frankie Dettori’s family's traditional Italian home cooking and the sophistication of Marco Pierre White's world-famous kitchens, this is a feast for all the senses.

Good food, good wine, good company, good weather … all these are essential ingredients for a slice of the Italian life.

Frankie Dettori, everyone's favourite Italian export, is as well known for his love of life as his success on the course. With a chain of family-orientated restaurants under their belts, Michelin-stared chief Marco Pierre White and Frankie Dettori have teamed up once again to transport their special mix of delicious decadence and simple, down-to-earth home cooking.

Filled with sumptuous photographs of Frankie's family and the surroundings in which he grew up, as well as charming personal anecdotes, family recipes and sumptuous photographs, ‘Frankie Detorri’s Italian Family Cookbook’ brings you the all best recipes from the restaurant as well as Dettori family favourites and Italian kitchen secrets.

Blending mouth-watering recipes, tips and anecdotes, and photographs that exude the warmth and vibrancy of true Italian dining, this is more than simply a recipe book – it's a slice of real Italian home cooking just like mama used to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100+ recipes 20 Mar 2008
Format:Hardcover
from a dynamic Italian best friend duo:-
jockey, Frankie Dettori and top chef, Marco PIerre White!

'Here they share their favourite recipes that they have been cooking at home for years, handed down from generation to generation..........'

From Marco's introduction:-
...'If this book ends up covered in flour and sticky finger prints and with the odd note in the margin, then and only then will you have realised its true value.'

From the back cover:-

'Simple, heart-warming and delicious. Nothing beats Frankie and Marco's good old-fashioned Italian recipes - just as their mammas use to make them.'

224 super high quality shiny pages split over 9 main chapters:-

Antipasta - Starters
Insalate - Salads
Pasta e Riso - Pasta and Rice
Carne - Meat
Pesce - Fish
Pizza e Pane - Pizza and Bread
Contorni - Side Dishes
Dolci - Desserts
Gelati - Ice Creams

sandwiched between an introduction and an index.

Each chapter opens with a list of the recipe titles, in both Italian and English, contained between vivid cover photographs.

Each recipe is well laid out with the bi-lingual titles (where applicable), the list of ingredients on the left hand side along with the number of servings, preparation time and cooking time. On the right is the clearly defined method.
Each recipe winds up with a tip from either Frankie or Marco.

Some of the dishes are accompanied by mouth-watering photography along with a significant number of on-location and family shots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frankie Dettori's Italian Family Cookbook 28 Dec 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am astonished this book isn't in the top 100 for Christmas because it is a gorgeous book
The recipes are simple and superb, the photography is beautiful
I found recipes my Italian Grandmother made and I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic Italian cook book
Marco Peirre White also having an Italian backgorund helps

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmm - and that's just the pictures! 19 Dec 2007
Format:Hardcover
With the proviso that I have yet to actually try any of the recipies, this book is a winner. From page one to the end, the photos alone are scrumptious. And I don't just mean the food either - I've been a Frankie fan for years now and some of the shots of him with his lovely children are a delight. I hope this book is a brilliant success and would urge you all to buy it, especially if you like Italy and Italian food.
PS It's a pity perhaps that a couple of the photo plates of Frankie appear to have been reversed (scar, ring and watch) - pages 59 and 181?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Family Cookbook 17 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
My daughter recommended this book to me and I have not been disappointed. It's a good read with lovely pictures as well as having easy to execute recipes. My daughter cooked the spaghetti with clams when we were in the UK last week and it was divine.
