The stories and pictures make this cookbook very special 23 May 2012
By Janie A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I like to read cookbooks the way I read any other kind of book, responding to the narrative portions and savoring the photographs. If cookbook directions are straightforward, the book will find its way to my kitchen. That's where this one is headed now.

I received "Hazan Family Favorites: Beloved Italian Recipes" as a gift and at first glance, it has all the fixings you'd expect to find on an Italian family's table, but this special collection offers some very personal and charming choices too.

Check out the Butter-Tomato-Onion sauce recipe, page 72. It has only four ingredients, yet Giuliano's father says he can tell whether the sauce was cooked by Giuliano or his mother. (This really is a family of serious food-lovers.) On my list to try: Fettucine with orange, page 87, Rice in the oven, page 93. Under the heading of Stuff Kids Love To Cook (I made up that category) I'll try the Chocolate Mousse, page 152, and Bechamel (white) sauce, page 77. I'll be making Lael's (Giuliano's wife) meat loaf, page 117. Guiliano praises his Nonna Mary's Ciambella, page 157, a simple yet special bread from his childhood (toasted for breakfast) and that's probably what I'll make first, based on his beautifully expressed "taste-memory."

I've read other Italian cookbooks, but this particular collection, with a foreward written by Giuliano's mother, famous Italian chef/author, Marcella Hazan, deserves its subtitle, "Beloved Italian Recipes."

The Delights of Family Cooking, Italian Style 28 May 2012
By Barbara Kitada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was at once, and immediately drawn to the beauty of each page as they unfolded only to find in each page, a mouth-watering recipe. I so appreciate the utter simplicity of Giuliano's recipes that make me feel like I am a gourmet cook after I prepare them and better yet, eat them. I also found delightful, his willingness and honesty to bring us into his home and introduce us to his family. I loved looking at those beautiful girls shaking it up, helping and contributing in their wholesome way to the very essence of these family recipes. Hey, if these girls can do it, so can I.

Pizza is on every corner and for the most part, forgettable. However, Giuliano's pizza is absolutely unforgettable with all of its luscious mixture of his amazing sauce and choices of fresh vegetables or meat, whatever is your liking or preference, and like an amazing chef, he is able to delight us with both.

Now for my favorite, which I recognize is not everyone's, brussels sprouts. Thank you Giuliano for giving us a recipe even haters of brussels sprouts I'm sure will enjoy. You give the trick to making them savory and sweet, boil them first, how simple and easy and then to be gratified with such tasty flavors mixed with the pancetta to tease and delight our palette. So all you brussels sprouts lovers and haters this is a must in experiencing gourmet cooking at its best. Vegetables can be a challenge and Giuliano is able to have us loving our vegetables.

This is a cookbook I feel everyone can find enjoyment in, simple, exemplary meals that make us feel like we are gourmet cooks. There is also the added pleasure of his intimate engaging pictures of his family through different generations of outstanding chefs, his boyhood growing up with chefs and then the very special look at his own family and his sharing with his daughters the joys and delight of cooking.

A very happy and satisfied customer,

Barbara Kitada

Perfect gift for anyone! 4 July 2012
By redgracer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It's very rare that a cookbook comes along that is as engaging a read sitting in the living room as it is a guidebook in the kitchen. With "Hazan Family Favorites," Giuliano Hazan has not only created a spectacular array of dishes you will want to make over and over, but the stories and commentary that accompany many of the recipes create a fascinating portrait of an illustrious culinary family whose history and shared lives were anchored by the kitchen. (His observations on the potato pancake recipe found in his mother, Marcella's, vintage notebook taken in turn from her own mother's Italian tradition being identical to a traditional hanukah recipe he makes yearly with his wife and daughters, is priceless). Among the many standout recipes are Risotto with Eggplant, Baked Tomatoes and Farfalle with Sausage and Peas, to begin a long list. Like Hazan's charming storytelling, the recipes are clear and elegant, and the book itself, with its retro photos, is gorgeous. Mostly cookbook, a bit of memoir, "Hazan Family Favorites" puts cooking where it is meant to be--among people gathering together--and it makes the perfect gift for that next large or small gathering.

Terrific Recipes, Beautiful Photographs...and entertaining stories. 25 May 2012
By Elizabeth L. Duda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hazan Family Favorites has quickly become my favorite cookbook. The photographs are gorgeous, and the descriptions are little narratives that make you feel like you are cooking with a trusted friend. I love that each recipe has a sub-title telling how long the meal will take to prepare from start to finish. From the quick and delicious Spinach and Chickpeas to the more involved Veal Stew with Mushrooms....Giuliano Hazan's clear instructions make you feel creative and in control. The book provides hours of enjoyment....browsing.....dreaming.....and actually cooking. Well done! I like the book so much, I've already purchased three as gifts!

Hazan Family Favorites is our favorite too 15 May 2012
By Anne Sarah Melamed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With so many celebrity chefs using ghost writers to quickly get their books to market, Hazan Family Favorites is a vibrant and personal account of Giuliano's food memoirs. His search for the flavors of childhood culminates in a collection of recipes that spans four generations- one influenced by Italian and Middle Eastern cuisine. It is food redolent with flavor yet neither complex nor time consuming to prepare.
As a food enthusiast, blogger and avid family cook, Hazan Family Favorites appeals to me on many levels. First, it is a practical cookbook I can use with my own family, with well written instructions, thoughtful layout and the use of a plethora of fresh seasonal ingredients. It is also a fascinating tale that traverses religions and continents, a story meant to be savored on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
