Book Description

25 Aug 2006
There is only one Harry's Bar. It is simultaneously a beloved Venetian landmark, a bar famous for its drinks, an international meeting place, and a luxurious restaurant. Harry's Bar is the finest, most sophisticated restaurant in the world. Over the past fifty years it has been the favourite haunt of the most glamorous stars: Orson Welles, Hemingway, Noel Coward and Richard Burton were all regular costumers. The bar's risottos and pasta dishes are its speciality. But other simple country food such as polenta, squid and beans are transformed into the most elegant dishes; and the book provides recipes for making the bar's famous cocktails, including the celebrated Bellini.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT USER-FRIENDLY COOKBOOK (A RARITY !) 5 Dec 2000
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about the TRUE Italian cuisine 29 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The next best thing to being at Harry's Bar. 7 Sep 2001
Format:Hardcover
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.
