This review is from: The Classic Italian Cookbook (Paperback)
Remember the taste of that Italian gnocci in Venice? Or the beef with olives in Verona? This book makes it possible for YOU to produce brilliant Italian cooking. The recipes are wide ranging, but many are very simple. For example pasta with sage sauce can be made in minutes. Whenever I have cooked from this book visitiors have been so impressed. Certain recipes are now firmly embedded in my standard cuisine. If you thought Italian cooking as just pizzas and pasta, well think again. This book is wonderful, exciting, but so easy to follow. Instructions are given for adapting basic recipes. I can smell the home made Pesto NOW. Bring the real taste of Italy to your kitchen, easily. I tried my version out on Pietro Lorefico, a missionaey from Sicily. " It is very good, just like we make. But more bay leaves, I think." he smiled surprised to find such food in Northern England.
