5.0 out of 5 stars Hail to the queen
Any book by the queen of Italian cuisine is a winner with me. This is fantastic. And she deserves our thanks for inspiring Nigella to cook.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gastronomy of Italy - Not a book for your Kindle
This is an impressive reference book on Italian food and cooking - and as such, does not really lend itself to the Kindle or iPad. You need to know what you are looking for in order to dip into it and if you do, it will have the answer. However, if you are looking for inspiration or a recipe, buy another book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything you could ever want to know about italian food, 20 Mar 2014
This review is from: Gastronomy of Italy (Hardcover)
Anna Del Conte is a giant of Italian cookery and it shows in this latest edition of her classic guide to Italian food. This is part cookery book, part encyclopedia and is crammed with information. If you have every wanted to know more about the history, meaning and regionality of the Italian food you cook and eat, then this is the book to do it. I dip into my copy all the time. There is a mass of recipes in here too, all in Anna's classic, simple style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and full of delight, 26 Feb 2014

This review is from: Gastronomy of Italy (Hardcover)
This was bought as a present for my wife, and she is SO pleased with it. It is the bees knees - recipes, history, comment, advice and very, very Italian.
I would almost go as far as to say that this is a masterpiece, and thoroughly deserves to be in the library of anyone who takes their Italian food seriously

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, interesting and very readable, 11 Feb 2014
This is a wonderful book about Italian cooking, not only offering a huge selection of delicious recipes but also an alphabetical history of Italian food and the people and ingredients behind it.

The book makes for a very interesting read, the colour photos are beautiful and make the food look very appealing, and it is a whopping chunk of book for the price it is sold for.

I am looking forward to trying some of these recipes out in future.

I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
