3.0 out of 5 stars Nice photographs of Italy, 11 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Greedy Italians (Hardcover)
Some great photographs of the two chefs and Italy, in fact more photographs of the chefs than their food, not all of the recipes have pics. I have dozens of cook books and this is one I will very seldom use recipes for rabbit and goat kid etc. Maybe be half a dozen things out of the full book I will use. Highly recommended if you like photography but not as a useful cook book.

I agree that the 'Look Inside' feature is nice, but it has its limits. So what I have started doing to prevent such unpleasant surprises, is to walk into one of the chain bookstores on High Street, sit down with a book that interests me and flip through it. When I get to the end I know whether it's up to my standards. Then I usually buy it from Amazon. But I must admit that I like the photography of country and people. It helps put the recipes into context with their roots. I also like the recipes using lesser known ingredients. I find this book is refreshingly different to most volumes on Italian out there, which are mostly reruns in different packaging. :-)

If you always buy from Amazon you'll eventually find the High Street shop is no longer there for you to browse. I can understand wanting to look before you buy (so many recipe books are all gloss and froth - I reckon a book is a good buy if I get from it two recipes than I use again and again) but maybe it would be more honest to use your local library for checking out a book. We need to be using libraries more if we aren't going to lose them too.

If High Street shops cannot stay competitive in price then they will inevitably go the way of the dinosaur. As the consumer, 99.9% of us will look for the best deal. There is nothing morally wrong with going to a bookstore to buy a book and then buying it at a place that gives you a good price. If a bookshop cannot keep their prices at a level where someone in their shop want to buy a book after looking at one, then that's ultimately not the consumers fault.

It's unrealistic to expect a small shop to match the prices of a global company such as amazon,sure I buy from amazon but also small shops,hopefully that way we will keep the choices that we have at present.
