Whilst searching for Italian recipes I came across this compact book. I loved the Basil Mashed potato recipe, just adding basil, milk and parmesan made a lovely tasty addition to my weekly menu. Finding Italian food has been an eye opener for me and this book uses so many of my favourite food in such a simple tasty way ie. Spinach, mushrooms, pasta, pine nuts - writing this is making me hungry for a little Italian snack.

Previous reviewers seem to love or hate this book, however I am in the middle- there are some recipes I love and some which I wonder why the are in an Italian cookbook.
As usual the book is well presented, it's split up into sections: Light meals and lunches, Simple suppers, Perfect pasta, Easy entertaining, Side dishes and, Deserts and drinks. Each recipe is split into 2 to 3 easy steps so even beginning chiefs can follow them, and a picture of the finished recpie on the opposite page, so you know what you're aiming for!
The rissotto recipes is my families favourte, we have made it so many times with so many different adaptions, it's delicious. The fuss free lasagne is also very authetic, I not sure about fuss free it took along time to prepare but it tasted amazing and I have seen italian families when I lived in Bologna prepare lasagne in a similar way. On the other hand some recipes are just simple english ones with added pesto or pancetta to make it "Italian". But i think that overall there are enough good recipes to balance out the bad and to make the book well worth buying.

If only to prove that there is more to Italian food than pizza or pasta to your family and friends, this little GoodFood book could be for you as the GoodFood magnifying glass turns and focusses its gaze on all matters Italian.

Forming part of a great little library of squat, colourful books the reader is able to browse quickly through to find recipes of interest. As is standard for books in this series, they have been tested, tested and tested again to be sure that they are suitable for home cooks, thus almost guaranteeing that you cannot go wrong.

Split into a few distinct sections - light meals & lunches; simple suppers; perfect pasta; easy entertaining; side dishes and desserts and drinks - the book has its usual trademark excellent signposting so you can find things either by chapter, by browsing or through the excellent index at the back. After a while there is only so much you can say about these books, especially to an audience who probably knows about the series already. Each recipe features its own full colour photograph of the finished dish, that can inspire and possible assuage the fevered brow of a cook who thinks that they are doing it all wrong. The recipes are easy to understand, well laid out and feature all of the information that you would require in one place. Brief words of advice are also given along with the recipes, but to be honest these don't always add that much. Any advice is better than none though.

Compared to some of the other books in the series, the recipe selection here seemed a little less well, comprehensive, than others we have examined. Some of the recipes appear to stretch the definition required for being included in a book of Italian food, but that might also show just how certain dishes have became mainstream over time.

I love this whole range of cookbooks, but this book is my favourite so far! The recipes are super-easy to make and taste delicious. Every grocery store sells the products you need and they are affordable as well. I am a vegetarian (but do cook meat for friends and family) and find this cookbook very suitable for vegetarians(sometimes you have to make your own modifications to recipes of course).

I normally like these books. However, this is very disappointing... the recipes are just made Italian by adding an ingredient like pesto. They are not authentic/regional dishes. They are fine for a quick meal but that's it!

Lots of lovely ideas for italian meals. The recipes I have used work very well. The coffee marsala sauce on page 202 is wonderful and so easy to make - can serve it with lots of other things as well as the zabagliones or just with ice cream.

As all of Good Food recipe books, this is another stunner. Great ideas in a handy wee book. I am looking for new titles.
