Praise for Frankie’s Italian Bar & Grill

lavishly illustrated and with over 100 recipes, this intimate cookbook will bring you together time and time again.
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.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer of AMAZON-UK! on 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.

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

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Basset-mama on 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?

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.
