Format: Paperback
The cookbook from the restaurant chain ASK contains over 100 recipes and is a mixture of completely original recipes plus some of the old-time ASK favourites (Penne Al Polla Della Casa being out favourite!) but this book is being published in conjunction with Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity in order to raise much needed funds for the hospital. I love cooking Italian food and I think it's possible that I may want to try nearly every recipe in this book. The book is split into sections that include Antipasti: Starters, Primi: Pasta, Primi: Risotto Farro and Potatoes, Pizza, Secondi: Fish and Meat, Contorni: Salads and Vegetables, Dolci: Desserts, Sauces and Basics. There are also useful sections that help you pair wine with food and give you hints and tips about making fresh pasta and ravioli. The recipes are clear and concise - very easy to follow and none of them are particularly daunting or require you to shop for a massive list of ingredients. The book itself is fantastic quality and a fab design. I love the feel of the matt pages and the photography inside is great - every recipe has an image which I like to see in a cookery book! I feel like this book is something I will use a lot over the years and I can't wait to get trying some of the recipes out.

I bought it for the Penne pollo della casa and it is remarkably similar to what you get in the restaurant. However, as I found with other restaurant books, you often have to make a sauce from a recipe before you can make another recipe. So it's not a quick option but some good ideas.

Everybody i know loves ask italian food, I brought this because i wanted to try my hand at some of their recipes.
Reason for four stars is because i was gutted that they didnt have the recipe for their fish stew.. But other than that
Its pretty decent :)

I brought it as a leaving present for a woman I worked with (wanted to cook dishes for her Italian husband). So I haven't used it myself, but she liked it.
