The must-have volume on Italian Food,
This review is from: Made in Italy: Food and Stories (Hardcover)
I have not been able to put this book down (and believe me, it's very heavy!) since I received it a couple of weeks ago. It is a wonderful mixture of recipes, detailed descriptions of distinctive ingredients like parmesan, olive oil and pasta and stories and reminiscences from Giorgio's life. While it is eminently practical, it also includes recipes for many signature dishes from Locanda Locatelli as well as shortcuts and adaptations for cooking at home.
Along with Marcella Hazan's 'Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking', you could not have a better guide to Italian food.
