5.0 out of 5 stars This book ticks all the right boxes, 11 Dec. 2006
By 
This review is from: 30-Minute Italian: Fast, Creative Italian Food (Pyramid Paperbacks) (Paperback)
We use this book so much that I don't even bother to put it back on the shelf. It has a permanent spot between the kettle and the fruit bowl. The recipes are a glorious combination of speed and authenticity - fast and easy with short lists of ingredients all readily available. Tempting photography on every page, and for most recipes, so you know what you're aiming for. I've used it for special occasions too - for the simple catering of christenings, birthday parties and family get-togethers.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best quick cook book i have found, 20 Feb. 2000
By 
This review is from: 30 Minute Italian (Hardcover)
This has some exciting and very tasty modern italian recipes, and they really can be cookd within 30 minutes. some are quick pasta (but not your standard recipes, try the zingy lemon and basil orso) and others are quite elaborate - say guinea fowl with fresh herb sauce or pan cooked rabbit with sage (which i cooked with chicken thighs for a party of 8 in less than 30 minutes).
if you like modern italian, and want to eat it every day, not just special occasions, then this book is for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Most use cookbook on the shelf!, 3 May 2011
This review is from: 30-Minute Italian: Fast, Creative Italian Food (Pyramid Paperbacks) (Paperback)
I bought this cookbook a few years ago and rate it as my most used cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and i am always pleased with the results. The risotto recipes are a stable in my household and make very economical dinners especially the butternut squash risotto where all the ingredients are readily available in the kitchen.

I made the lemon polenta syrup cake a couple of weeks ago for my parents and in laws and it was a great success served with cream and ice cream.

The book is a must have i would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine 30 minute cooking, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 30 Minute Italian (Hardcover)
Best Italian cookery book I have. Everything in the book can be cooked in 30 minutes (or very close). Chocolate risotto a bit odd, but the lemon polenta cake is terrific. Duck with cranberry and balsamic vinegar is a show stopper.
