Format: Paperback
I wholeheartedly recommend this excellent book to anyone interested in leaning about and practising Italian cooking. Each subject starts with an out lay of basic facts about the relevant ingredients and contains good "encyclopaedic" information. The recipes are, with some dedication, cookable !! I have learnt how to make a good risotto with por cini, and this year am trying to master the risot to with "frutti di mare". The style of writing is enjoyable. I understand a new updated edition has come out in 2000.

The world is full of books that pretend to talk about the Italian way of cooking. Some of them are good, others have nothing to do with Italian food. For me this is by far the best book if you truly want to enjoy, and to understand, the way we eat. And, btw, all the recipes and timings are correct!

As a cook and literary buff, I always thought of Harry's Bar in Venice as a monument that has provided me with great inspiration.
Tucked away on a corner not far from St Mark's Square, it is quite small with low ceilings but with an incredible view of the Grand Canal from its first floor. The decor is very relaxing with small comfortable chairs and tables in pleasant shades of apricot and cream. Upon opening the doors, you immediately drink in the atmosphere that is intimate, worldly, historically rich and alive.
I remember the first time I visited Harry's bar twenty-five years ago. I went to this legendary bar, made famous by Ernest Hemingway, after having promised myself that I would only have a drink. I knew the prices would be outrageous for someone on a student budget since Harry's Bar had enjoyed an international reputation since 1931. But the moment that last sip of wine was out of my glass, I had to ask for a table. I do not remember what I had for lunch that day at Harry's Bar. I do remember though, how impressed I was by the quality of the house wine, the simple presentation of the food that tasted wonderful and the professional and friendly service with which the Harry's Bar staff made sure that this was going to be a memorable experience for me. So, Harry's Bar became part of my growing up and thus gained a significant importance in my life.
Ernest Hemingway used to have his own table in one corner of Harry's Bar. At the end of World War II, Hemingway dedicated to the bar a page of his famous novel "Across the River and into the Trees." The list of famous people who frequented Harry's Bar is long and impressive.

I have used this book for nearly two years and it's the one I keep returning to for delicious easy recipes. There are lots of photos to teach you how to make gnocchi, or information for choosing parmigiana or olive oil etc. If a recipe needs a explanation of technique, like risotto or preparing artichokes, it is clearly and consciously given. I have learnt much about cooking in the Italian tradition and Signor Cipriani teaches and entertains from the pages of this book. The Bolognese and Osso Buco are not too be missed!

Recently we were in Venice and ate an excellent meal in Harry's Bar. I had the privilege of having the book signed by Signor Cipriani. He was pleased with all the sticky notes, tomato stains and other signs of use. Just as in the book, he had his meal, read the newspaper and greeted everyone in the restaurant.

The book, the restaurant and Venice I can heartily recommend.
