I bought this as a replacement having given mine out on loan and it going bye bye.
The lack of pretentiousness and simple instructions make for an easy to follow recipe book and the background & history help understand the BEST and most varied cuisine in the world.
Antonio embodies everything good about Italian food.

this large book is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach! each area of Italy is accompanied by recipes using produce indiginous to that region. there are even several pages describing wines of the areas. A total of 320 pages all for1p plus postage. Another triumph for World of Books!

My sister has this book and on reading through her copy one weekend, I really wanted my own copy. I purchased a very good pre-owned copy for 1p plus p&p. I can highly recommend this book as it contains the very basics of Italian cooking plus much more sophisticated recipes.

As well as some fantastic regional dishes, Carluccio takes you through the variety of different Italian foods which helps to prepare more authentic food. Easy to follow instructions.

I enjoyed reading this book. I've got quite a passion for Italy having travelled there a 27 times(!) and counting... mostly to Northern-ish Italy - Liguria, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio, Umbria, Venito & Lombardy. This book is written with such great passion but I just can't recommend it as its confusing to the reader.

It's written by an 'artist' and what are great cooks eh?.... But... What is it?... a travel book or a cook book?...Neither. Pages and pages of info - A-Z s of Veg, Meat, Cheese etc with lots of pretty pictures but only pictures to half the recipes here. If you read it as a travel/history book then its interesting reading but essentially 'useless', but if you want to cook a lot of what is offered here then you really need to be in Italy for the ingredients. Also, There is much talk of offal etc which given Italy's peasant cooking tradition is correct but possibly of little interest to a modern cook from outside AND inside Italy? Many of the ingredients, unless you live in London say, you just won't be able to get hold of. Italian sausages with fennel seeds anyone?

Other than a Sean Hill (for classic French technique) and Delia (bible!) book I am disappointed with most other cook books so maybe it was a tall order for this to impress me!

BTW I'm Dyslexic so don't equate bad English and grammar to 'Thick'.

The sections about the origins and uses of food ingredients are interesting and useful. Sadly I find the recipes are a bit uninspiring. Technically I am sure they are fantastic. I just can't get fired up about them. I don't turn pages thinking, 'Oh yes I'd like that to cook that one!' which I do with other books.
