Buy this book .. the recipes are simple, healthy and perfect. Having this man as his mentor, it's no wonder Jamie Oliver has been so successful.
The fish recipes cover a wide range including sea bass, hake (merluzza), halibut, etc.. From the meat chapters you will find stuffed pork belly, chicken breasts with lemon & thyme, chicken bites wrapped in pancetta & sage, duck breasts in limoncello, slow-cooked veal, stuffed breast of guinea fowl and rabbit with garlic & rosemary amongst others. There are lots of salad & vegetables included pureed chick peas, a great alternative to potatoes, and stuffed courgette parcels (a cheese & potato mixture). There is short chapter devoted to mushrooms too. I loved the chapter entitled Snacks. A selection of these makes a splendid buffet.Read more ›
As a vegetarian I was delighted to find that this BEAUTIFUL book, which is both visually beautiful & held together by the warmth of Gennaro's intimate personal anecdotes, is also CRAMMED full of vegetable dishes ~ 'orange & fennel salad', 'baked aubergine rolls filled with mozzerella', 'stuffed courgette parcels', 'sun-dried tomato gnocchi with black olive sauce', & 'risotto with fresh peas, broad beans and courgettes' to name but a few ~ the remaining inticing meat dishes i can't wait to make for family & friends, & may well be tempted myself.. 'anti-pesto of fresh peaches & parma ham', 'steamed meatballs', 'duck breasts in limoncello'!! 'chicken breasts with lemon & thyme', 'roast goose with apples and chestnuts in red wine', 'rabbit with garlic & rosemary served with brushetta', & 'breast of guinea fowl stuffed with herbs and served with a balsamic sauce' for example. There are also many ideas for 'pesce'(that's fish to you & me)',such as 'king prawns and crab with garlic & chilli', 'halibut with caper & dill sauce','rolled swordfish with fennel','sea bream fillets in a honey & white wine vinegar sauce', pasta dishes, soups, & basics, such as 'basic polenta with cheese' 'pasta fresca (basic pasta dough)', bread sticks (!Read more ›

A very disappointing cookery book, I found very few new receipes in it. I expected gems of Italien cuisine, alas nothing for me, a waste of money!Published on 10 July 2012 by P. J. Archer
