"BRINGING ITALY RIGHT TO YOUR KITCHEN!" 16 Oct. 2012
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of my favorite chefs for Italian cuisine is Lidia Bastianich, who I followed for many years as I was interested to compare her recipes with my dad's recipes from his Italian parents, who resided in Italy. Fascinated by her many appearances on television and the fact that I loved cooking Italian food, I knew I'd learn a great deal. After residing in Long Island, New York, 45 years as Lidia and her daughter do and knowing she owned at least 4 Italian restaurants in New York City which was only 1 hour from where I lived, I became more fascinated and inspired by her famous reputation and awesome books. Some of her favorite recipes have also become mine, with absolutely no regrets. This amazing cookbook offers several easy-to-prepare and enjoyable sauces, main dinners, and unforgettable desserts. Her work is easy-to-read and concise with new information on nutrition, stunning illustrations, revised and updated recipes, and much more. Her classic sauces have an aroma that will make you hungry instantly, and her famous recipes will provide treasured family moments. My favorite is Eggplant Parmigiana, and chicken cacciatore. The Savory seafood stew aims to please, and the Cannoli Napoleon is my all time favorite. Her mouth-watering recipes will bring compliments at family gatherings, and the desserts are simply delicious. In comparison to my dad's Italian recipes, Lidia Bastianich is a Winner, because I found both to be delightful. Highly Recommended to all cooks interested in Italian food, and the perfect gift for family and friends who love Italian cooking on any special occasion!

Amazing 22 Oct. 2012
By hotpink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ok.this book is golden. The recipes are a collection of everything you would possibly associate Italian cuisine to, and some with a twist. Most cookbooks contain a certain percentage of intriguing recipes as well as ones that make you just want to turn the page. Not this book, every single recipe stands out and begs to be made. Yes, some of the recipes are in her previous books, but it is so convenient to have all mouth watering recipes in one compilation. Truly a gem of a book. You will love it.

Think twice before buying 22 Oct. 2012
By Susan W. Shepard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you already own most of Lidia's ( quite wonderful)cookbooks beware-most of the recipes in this new book appear in those other books-hence the three stars and title. If you do not have any, or maybe just one, then do not hesitate to buy this cookbook.

A kind of "do-all" Italian cookbook by a real master 18 Dec. 2012
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
You could almost view this book as a basic text in Italian cooking but Italian cooking can be surprising in its simplicity. Often, only four or five ingredients go to make up a classic dish. It's the combination (broccoli rabe and sausage, spaghetti and pesto, spaghetti with oil and garlic) that works, but some combinations are unusual; tomato and apples in a sauce, but, why not? Tomatoes benefit from some sweetness and apples would work.

So there are basics in here like pasta and clam sauce or Lobster Fra Diavolo, but also some unusual things like the apple-tomato sauce, roasted pears and grapes, and octopus and potatoes. Lidia also includes some recipes you would not expect in an Italian cookbook; strudel, for one. In a way, this book reminds me of Julia Child's classic "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in its scope, and you could literally cook your way through this book.

The book covers the basics such as Italian-American meat sauce (which Lidia explains celebrates the generous amounts of meat available in the US compared to Italy), the basic greens-and-pasta, vegetables like artichokes and broccoli rabe, and the sausage-and-pasta and risottos we are familiar with. Then there are unusual or uncommon Italian recipes that are less familiar to Americans such as rice balls (a Sicilian speciality), a barley risotto which I'd only seen over in Europe, and many other regional dishes that are not as well-known here. The desserts are interesting; a limoncello tiramisu and almond-pine-nut cookies that I particularly like instead of the cliche amaretti or biscotti; something to serve simply with a cup of espresso to round out a meal.

In short, a good basic cookbook with additions for stepping out of the familiar, all explained by a master of cuisine. Highly recommended for anyone who loves Italian food but wants to expand their repertoire as well as master the essentials.
