This is one of the best Italian cookery books I have ever read. I lived in Campania for several years and was thrilled to discover a book that featured many of my favourite recipes from the area. It's hard to find an Italian cookery book with such authentic recipes, which have not been adapted in some way for the UK.

It's true that the recipes are written for a large number of people, but this is clearly explained in the description and it's not exactly difficult to divide the amounts by 2, or 4, etc. to make smaller quantities.

Having spent a number of my formative years working in an Italian Restaurant its perhaps one of the cuisine styles that I'm most comfortable with as I know how to utilise the wonderful ingredients from that region of Europe to create wonderfully tasty as well as deliciously flavourful meals.

What this book by Gennaro does is give the reader the chance to create a few gems with an authentic taste of Italy. Its utilises seasonal vegetable and helps make meal times not only a family affair but a talking point for everyone to come together and share the experience. Add to this some wonderful combinations, great dishes to mix and match and something for all occasions really makes this a creative and delightful recipe book.

It sems the reviewer above found the book too complicated and needs pictures to help her understand what she's making. For the rest of us, however, this is another indispensible home cook book from Signor Contaldo, mentor to Jamie Oliver and owner of one of the best Italian restaurants in London. True to its title, the recipes are simple and straightforward, as all Italian cooking should be. At the same time they are imaginative - turkey with orange and pomegranate for example - and properly Italian. What I like about Contaldo is the way he takes you beyond the obvious without ever becoming fiddly or difficult. Cucina italiana from the master.
