This volume has been in print now for a number of years and the recipes still feel fresh and challenging as well. It is not a book designed for those who don't already have some basic cooking skill - it is not a 'method' cookbook so if you need to know how to reduce a sauce properly etc then I should get something else to accompany this one e.g.Mastering the Art of French Cooking: Vol 1 for example. However, the recipes in themselves are largely uncomplicated with a focus on the very best of ingredients. There are a wide variety of vegetarian recipes such as Ribollita and Ricotta al forno (a wonderful green souffle), as well as a number of more unusual meat dishes too. Particularly good was the fascinating Pork Roasted with Balsamic Vinegar - one would expect this to be far too acidic and sharp, but with slow cooking, the meat (which is grilled first) is complimented by a rich thick treacle-like goo, not too sweet and with only a hint of acidity - an excellent dish especially for a large group as you can simply leave it to cook. Their game dishes are also very good and the timings of most recipes are pretty accurate for the average household oven. If you want to impress your friends and yourself with fabulous Italian dishes, then this is the book for you.

Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray's The River Cafe Cook Book and the follow-up River Cafe Cook Book Two changed my life. The recipes are easy to follow and yield consistently sensational results. After the first bite of their Panzanella--Tuscan summer salad--you'll think you're in heaven. And the Winter Minestrone--sublime. It's better (and a whole lot cheaper) than a holiday in Tuscany!

Despite the embarassing associations of this book - polenta eating, virgin olive oil drizzling Southern yuppies - when you get past these understandable feeling and pick one up, you will have bought one of the best cookbooks you will ever own. The chicken stuffed with mascarpone and rosemary is a favourite, but most of the recipes are incredible. Use the ingredients you can get hold of and don't use the amounts suggested if they seem ridiculous - and you are confident.This book improved our cooking 100%. Buy it, you won't regret it.

It's a standard book for any lover of Italian, coming from what is an institution in the UK. Combine it with some of the works of Carluccio & Contaldo you will not need anything else for Italian cuisine in my mind (Apart from perhaps Silverspoon). Nice and clear.

I agree with the other reviewer - the Winter Minestrone is fabulous - but so are all the other soups - the Sardinian fennel in Book 2 - and the stocks are so simple to make, yet taste SO GOOD! The vegetable recipes are a yum, the meat and poultry superb and the desserts, delicious! Absolutely brilliant. Try their Estate Olive Oils too!

Lovely book and have already tried several of the recipes to the enjoyment of family and friends. I look forward to trying some more especially as I have now shared the book with a friend.

The book arrived earlier than I expected and the condition is as described, so that's just as it should be. Many thanks to the vendor.

I flicked through this book at a friends house and couldn't put it down. The recipes are imaginitive but simple and most of them are quick. Lots of fresh ingredients and herbs are used and there are loads of recipes for vegetarians. All the methods are explained without jargon so you don't need any experience of cooking. All the recipes I've tried so far have been a great success.
