Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Master of Italian Cookery
Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Master of Italian Cookery
by Antonio Carluccio
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a right proper cook book!, 6 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Please don't expect an unbiased review, this man, Antonio Carlucci is a long time foodie hero of mine so the book has been read with a certain amount of rosy coloured tint in my specs'.
This is very well presented, it is just short of A4 in size, so it can easily be read propped up in a kitchen book holder whilst following recipes - (this from experience already)! Good quality paper with excellent, full colour photographs throughout the book showing the finished recipes - I only wish they could be tasted...
Mr Carlucci has given his vast, 70 year knowledge of pasta to the reader and presented it in a very readable and easy to follow way, he tells the reader when ingredients might be difficult to find and in some cases gives an alternative. There are explanations of over 100 of the more than 600 shapes of pasta you may have heard of, and a lot you haven't and explanations of how to make these shapes, or at least a good few of them, in one's own kitchen.
The recipes cover pasta in soups, salads, as a starter, a main course and as desserts, my wife has been making the Pasta Al Forno {Baked Pasta} for years and it is a firm family favourite. I can't wait to try the fantastic sounding 'Bucatini con Salsa di Peperoni Arrostiti e Acciughe' . {Large spaghetti with a roast pepper and anchovy sauce to you and me!}
The sauce recipes are all there too, easy enough to follow with method and cooking instructions.
This is a right proper cook book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Kit, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived late, but the parcel by courier had 'next day' on it so I suppose it was posted late? Anyway it was worth waiting for, a lovely piece of kit that does what it says it does and does it very well. Good price too!

Banjo for Dummies
Banjo for Dummies
by Bill Evans
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb instruction backed up with downloadable audio and visuals., 8 July 2014
This review is from: Banjo for Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not a well chosen title, it should be Five String Banjo for Dummies, the author, Bill Evans who is a very accomplished player, explains this at the beginning of the volume and in fact directs the reader to "look for another book for four string, tenor and plectrum banjos" which would be nicer on the front not on page 10!
Having said that this is as comprehensive an instructor as one could possibly find in a book and appendices of some 342 pages. It covers everything that the beginner could want to know, and much that a better player should know about playing this instrument, giving access to instructions on video and sound tracks that accompany chapters, these are downloadable and of high quality.
The first chapter familiarises the reader with the banjo, the different kinds, how to 'fret' and explores the parts and generally introduces the reader to the five string banjo.
Chapter two gives instruction on Tuning and the different methods available to tune correctly, then chapter three kicks off with the business of actually starting to play.
Different sections and chapters cover 'everything' clawhammer bluegrass, sliding, hammering and pulling. It describes the great Pete Seeger's method of playing and runs on through Scruggs style. This is so good a book even if you have no intention of playing its a damn good read all by itself!
Chapter 17 is headed Ten Great Players You Need To Hear and continues to give a quick appraisal of these ten players, so you can rest assured, you want a volume that covers all aspects -from the start- this is an absolute MUST HAVE, superb instruction backed up with downloadable audio and visuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its very nearlyTolkien!, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love it Love It Love It, wonderfully cast, beautifully acted the script is imaginative but don't expect it to stick tight to Tolkien's magic writing, I am a Tolkien fan but I do forgive the excursions from the book, this is a glorious movie... More, I want More!
