My requirements were pretty simple, a good vareity of "interesting" and exciting Italian dishes.
I am fairly competent at cooking, but like many lack the vision and style to really make my dishes shine, sticking to fairly simple ingredients and not really experimenting much. I do love Italian food and always have, so I decided to buy this to give me some ideas and try to take things to the "next level"
The book is very well presented with a nice selection of recipes covering a great variety of dishes from the expected pasta, to pizzas, fish dishes, salads, meat free, some breads too and a yummy selction of stunning deserts. There really is something here for everyone no matter what your particular taste in food is.
Instructions are clear and easy to follow, though as others have mentioned not all have photos, and yes there are some pages with the Gino photo shoot look too (I like photography so I don't mind) but it's an interesting book, that makes you want to be creative and is genuinely fun; and vary from very easy to a bit more advanced (again all skill levels will find something for them in here) Some of the dishes are genuinely impressive and sure to go down very well with guests or the family. The savoury pancakes with mushrooms, spinach and basil pesto are quite outstanding, and the Italian sausage is sensational.
As with all cook books there are ingredients that are basic and easily at hand, and some will require a bit of hunting down. As we know though you can improvise at times, so I wouldn't get too hung up on that.Read more ›
