A lovely book, and my used copy from Awesome_Books is like new, so I must compliment them too. One reviewer has given this 3 stars as you cannot easily obtain many of the fresh ingredients in the UK. That's certainly something to be aware of, but that often applies to recipes in many of the world's most celebrated cookbooks. One key ingredient is always inspiration, rather than slavish imitation, as these writers constantly expound. Like that reviewer - "I recommed it" - but I give it 5 stars.

My wife saw this book in a restaurant in Rome on a recent holiday. She was taken by the sheer beauty of the book and the wonderful recipes. I am very happy to say that upon her return she bought it (from Amazon) and we have been using it ever since. We have tried a lot of the recipes and without exception the food is brilliant. I would say that this is not a book for novice chefs but persevere - it's worth the effort. To close I would say if you only buy one Italian cook book, buy this one.

Myself and five other people had the wonderful experience of staying in Anna Rosa Mignone Vasconetto's villa near Sienna in the spring of 1999. Rosa showed us her copy of this book and I have been searching for it since then. We enjoyed the views and the foods of Tuscany and this book brings back many fond memories. The recipes are authentic and delicious. All in all, an excellent reflection of the experiences of Tuscany.

Beautiful pictures, great recipes but... it is almost impossible to prepare these dishes anywhere outside Tuscany (e.g. fresh cannelini beans are almost unavailable outside Italy). I recommed it but rather as a book for reading (and watching pictures)than as a cook book.

HASH(0x98cf42f4) out of 5 stars A book to transport you 18 Mar. 2004
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have owned this book for three years now and whenever I want to transport myself back to Tuscany and the green rolling hills of the Chianti countryside I just open this book. Maggie Beer and Stephanie Alexander are true legends of food and wine in Australia and their innate knowledge and love of their art shines through every page. This book was the result of the two cucina divas combining their talents to run a cooking school in Italy.
The hardcover volume is beautifully bound with superb photography. The narrative is flowing and friendly and makes you feel like you are in a conversation with the two whilst cleaning porcini mushrooms or sampling thin slices of prosciutto.
The recipes are explained clearly and are in keeping with the simplicity and freshness of true Italian cuisine. This is a book for lovers of Italian food but also for lovers of food based on fresh, seasonal produce. The recipes are not complicated and do not rely on long labourious hours in the kitchen. The Rotolo di Spinaci recipe has won me accolades every time I have made it. I recommend this book to anyone interested in true Tuscan cooking.

By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A collaborative compilation and effort by Stephanie Alexander and Maggie Beer, Tuscan Cookbook: Recipes And Reminiscences From The Italian Cooking School is superbly enhanced with the full color photography of Simon Griffiths and showcases a cornucopia of wonderful dishes. From Salsa Agresto; Green Salad with Walnuts and Verjuice; Herbed Pasta with Fresh Tomato and Red Onion Sauce; and Figs Stewed in Amaro Syrup; to Spinach with Lemon, Garlic, and Pine Nuts; Baked Prune Plum and Mascarpone Tart; Cuttlefish Salad; and Pheasant in Vin Santo with Chestnuts and Pancetta, Tuscan Cookbook is as much fun to simply browse through as it is inspiring to plan a menu with. A true culinary treasure, the Tuscan Cookbook is a welcome and treasured addition to any dedicated gourmet cookbook collection.

HASH(0x98cf8954) out of 5 stars Extraordinary! 29 Mar. 2005
By Cosmas Bisticas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent "recreational" cookbook, perfect for your coffee table or library. Exceptional photographs and relatively few, but very well chosen recipes. I have tried several of the recipes and did not find myself even tempted to make alterations. The "Grilled Quail in a Grape bath" as well as the Mascrapone tart, were two of my favorites, so far! Buy with confidence, you'll treasure this one for years!

Book has been out of print for sometime, but is a wonderful reflection of the authors who fell in love with Tuscan cooking from an American point of view.

HASH(0x98cf88d0) out of 5 stars Printed with cheap ink? 24 May 2013
By MAardvark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
we saw this paperback book in the villa where the school was held, and it was beautiful. So, we ordered a copy. Though the cover is the same, the photos inside are dull and lifeless, and they are fewer and different, unlike the one at the villa corsano. Its as if this is a reworked printing where the publisher cheapened out on the ink and removed pages to save money. Awful.
