I have lived in Italy for many years, and love Italian cooking - I love it because it exalts simplicity, it takes a few basic ingredients and produces pure uncluttered taste sensations. It puts vegetables and beans in the place they should be on a table - at the head. Antonio's recipes are absolutely genuine and simple, and reflect all of this. These dishes are exactly what you find in Italian homes - things like raw artichoke salad, turnip shoots with pasta, pumpkin risotto, pizzoccheri, I could go on and on. The layout of the book is also simple and uncluttered, with great photography and interesting and valid introduction sections to each vegetable. This book will never go out of date and if you only have one book on Italian cooking, you should make it this one. I couldn't recommend it more.

This is a lovely book on an often overlooked subject, vegetables in Italian cooking. It's subdivided by category, with helpful photographs, and an introduction to the hows whys and whats of of each vegetable and its place in Italian cuisine. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious. Not strictly vegetarian, there are many dishes that contain meat. Carluccio is an Italian living in England, so one would think his book would focus on ingredients that are freely available here. However, he includes a few vegetables that I've never heard of and that he admits are rarely found in this country. A disappointment, if you want to try these particular dishes, but it gives you something to look forward to next time you go to Italy.

This book tackles the cooking of vegetables in a basic and simple to follow way without any of the faddish or moralising views of many modern vegetarian books. I have tried several receipies all of which were delicious and successful. It is a very useful addition to anyone wishing a little inspiration with vegetable cooking

I like how Antonio has formatted this cook book on vegetables and the various recipes on each vegetable subject..,There are some vegetables included that I haven't heard of, & which one won't be able to procure here in the UK though despite this it gives the book a greater dimension through curiousity. A very good Italian vegetable cook book that will compliment any kitchen.

A friend of mine has this book and I have often coveted it. Now I have one of my own. Having lived in Italy for over 4 years I love Sig. Carluccio's approach to vegetables and would recommend this book to anyone.
