5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico! 14 Sep 2013
This is the Gino book I have been waiting for, 100 recipes using a minimum of fuss and maximum of flavour that will have you spending many a happy hour in the kitchen as well as some great info on Italy and best of all that insight into what it was like for Gino growing up and life in Italy, its certainly on a par with the Two Greedy Italians books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 17 Oct 2013
I'm generally a terrible cook but can honestly say that these recipes are so simple and bursting with flavour that even I've impressed the family. A lot of the recipes use similar ingredients to each other so it's a cheap and easy way to cook, lots of colour and flavour, best cook book ever (and I've bought loads)

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable book 24 Sep 2013
By red0209 TOP 100 REVIEWER
I like this book. It has a good feel to it with an impressive variety of recipes with some good background information and a few well placed hints and tips. If a recipe requires a little more explanation, the book doesn't try to squeeze the recipe onto one page, it continues onto the next one as necessary. It has the recipe title in Italian at the top of the page, and in English in a slightly smaller font underneath. I appreciate that this book is to accompany a TV series so as such it's not just a standard recipe book, but one minor criticism is the inclusion of unnecessary photographs of Amalfi and Rome, with a couple of Gino D'Acampo also. Mostly of Amalfi and mostly double page photographs, these aren't really required, particularly as a fair few recipes don't come with accompanying photographs. I also think the chapter on sides and salads was mostly so straightforward that this wasn't necessary either. Generally though it's a very good book with some interesting recipes and good additional information. Read more ›

A really lovely book which compliments the amazing series that I have been glued to since it started. I have already made one or two of the dishes which are so different and tasty and I can't wait to try even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, simple yet amazing food 15 Oct 2013
I love this book. The recipes use only a handful of ingredients compared to many other cookbooks and the food is wonderfully tasty. Used it to create a 3 course dinner for friends and family and it went down a treat. The simplicity of the recipes means you have time to enjoy your guests' company rather than being stuck in the kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars #easyteam recipe reviewer 10 Oct 2013
By Toppo
I got this book as part of my #easyteam duties and I found it easy to recreate the tiramisu recipe and it looked as good as the pictures in the book. I have yet to try any of the other recipes and look forward to doing so.
