Product Description

Book Description

Love Italian food? Look no further. Delia Smith's definitive collection of Italian recipes will bring a taste of Italy to homes country-wide

About the Author

Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery writer, whose books have sold over 21 million copies worldwide. Delia's first job as a cookery writer was for the Daily Mirror in 1969 - numerous phenomenal best sellers and television series followed including Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course in 1978 and Delia's Christmas, Summer & Winter Collections in the 1990s. Towards the end of the decade Delia commenced work on a new major project - Delia's How to Cook, publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying tv series. The Vegetarian Collection and The Delia Collection followed. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time 'Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking' - which has sold over 800,000 copies to date. Delia is married to the writer and editor, Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.

Having bought the first four books in The Delia Collection last year, I was delighted to see the latest edition to this series was 'Italian' (being a total Italian food addict!). Yes I have got some of the recipes in other Delia cookbooks, but it's an absolute luxury to have a really good selection of Italian recipes all in one place - thank you Delia! - this makes life a whole lot easier when you need a recipe pronto!

It was difficult to rate this book. I've given it 2 stars because, as I already own a number of Delia Smith books, I already have most of the recipes which puts me off buying the other books in this series.
However, if you don't, it contains some great recipes for lovers of Italian food - I particularly like the one for spaghetti with olive oil, chilli and garlic.

An excellent book and offering very easy but different recipes. You can 'cheat' a little too. If you like Italian food buy this and have a great time making wonderful food. Good excuse for a glass of chilled white wine whilst deciding which recipe to choose.

Most of Delia's books are great, and this whole series is excellent, with some of my favourite Italian recipes being de-mystified and at last within my grasp!

All her books are well researched and the menus tested, and so are well presented and easily followed.

Excellent yet again!

Always reliable, non patronising and helpful. Her recipes will never be bested as far as I am concerned. One of the few tv cooks that is worth the money spent making her programmes and producing her books.

The book, as always, was beautifully photographed and laid out – a joy to behold. No new recipes though – all stuff I already have really, but I shall definitely try out her versions. I can't resist anything Italian so it's good to add to my collection. You can always be certain that Delia's recipes will work, no recipe disasters here I'm sure.

I love Delia's recipes because they always work. I love the fact that she has done a book on Italian cooking only - you don't have to search through her other books (which I have a few of) if you want a particular Italian recipe. I wish I could afford all her books - except "Cheats!" I think her "How to Cook" series were plain enough for learner cooks

Looks good and the contents are the usual high Delia standard - glossy pages and good illustrations. Whay else is there to say!
