"There are two important influences in my cooking life: my mother and Anna del Conte. Anna is the best Italian food writer. She changed the way the English thought about Italian cooking" (Nigella Lawson)
"My favourite Italian food writer" (Delia Smith)
"The best Italian food writer around" (Nigella Lawson)
"Something of a hero... Her lemon risotto is heavenly, her plums cooked with wine, spices and rosemary a delicious staple. Her writing is warm and unaffected, and full of fascinating historical detail" (Guardian)
"Lots has changed in the food world sine Del Conte first published these recipes in 1993, but they remain classics of their type, with a few interesting curve balls thrown in for good measure, such as risotto with smoked salmon and whiskey" (Irish Times)

Baci di Dama biscuits are lovely but, after you've put 1-2 tbsp of the sugar in the mix, what do you do with the rest of the 120g? I looked up other Baci di Dama recipes online and found that you roll the biscuits in it just before baking.
Pomodori Ripieno do Riso calls for 'Italian rice, preferably Vialone Nano'. I couldn't get that so I used Arborio, usually described as a practical alternative to Vialone. After following the recipe to the letter, the rice was not cooked. And I don't mean it was al dente. I mean that it was hard! And it's not my oven temperature, that was checked with an oven thermometer.
We have become used to clear recipes which, if you follow the instructions, work well. Delia is the queen of this, but there are many other cooks who also offer foolproof instructions.
This is potentially a lovely book and I will try more of the recipes, but the sloppy lack of attention to detail is most disappointing.
Who am i to disagree? This is a great cookbook.

If you love Italian cookery and haven't got any of Anna del Conte's books, then you should add them to your kitchen library. You won't be disappointed!Published 7 months ago by David James Sulman
Del Conte is one of the best. Very few cooks match her talent
Simple to follow and always an authentic result. Forget the Nigelissimas.
