Even if you do not cook any of the recipes in this book it is wonderful to look at.If you do follow the recipes you are in for a wonderful gastronomic delight.

Doesn't have the 'honesty' of her other books. I am a great fan of Tessa's work, but I think this is a book too far. It is overly designed and the recipes just don't grab me. Give this a miss and pick up one of her earlier masterpieces.

I bought this book as a gift for my parents who spent their 40th Wedding Anniversary in Venice. The photography and art work is stunning. The recipes look enticing and interesting and the text is easy to follow, but as I've not made anything from them I can't say if they are accurate instructions. Whether the recipes work or not, this is a lovely book to look at!

This is the most beautiful cookery book I have ever owned. I bought it because it is visually stunning, but the bonus is that the recipes are great too. I have also bought this book for friends, every keen cook should have this in their collection. 5*

As I was going to Venice, I thought I would get in the mood for the city by purchasing this book. It doesn't disappoint on a visual and tactile level. Absolutely stunning, sensuous photos that capture the atmosphere of this captiving city. This book is the only cook book that I brought purely for looks alone.

However, I rate it low from a cooking perspective, as I don't eat much fish and so wasn't to my taste. Though I will try rustling up some of the other recipes at a later date.

It will rest on my coffee table (safe from the splashes of liquids or food that my Nigel Slater books endure) to appreciate rather than to use.

Simply a beautiful book. Fantastic food with enchanting images. I bought this as a gift for my foodie Father, I have no doubt that he will cherish it.

If you can't afford to go to Venice you can buy this book and look at the pictures. Some marketing expert probably also had the cleaver idea of gilding the edges of the book. With that kind of focus it is already a no brainer. The author does not have any specific knowledge about Venetian food. She presents a bunch of recipes. Why on earth would you buy a cookbook from somebody who is not an expert on the subject. No stay away if you're interested in cooking. If you desperately want to dream about Venice, by all means give this book a try. But I'd rather recommend a budget airline ticket.
