The Top One Hundred Pasta Sauces
The Top One Hundred Pasta Sauces
by Diane Seed
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have book, 3 Nov. 2011
I honestly can't recommend this book enough for anyone that likes to eat pasta however is always left disappointed by shop bought sauces. The recipes in here will surpass anything available from the supermarket.

Some of my favourites include:

- Putanesca (Whore's spaghetti) which is quicker to make than boiling the pasta to go with it and costs around £1.
- Lemon pasta which honestly tastes like lemon cake.
- Pea, bacon and onion pasta with pecorino.

As this book was published back in the 80's it may feel a bit dated so if you want food porn photos, a smiling author on the cover and lists of exotic ingredients that come in tiny pots and cost a small fortune this really isn't for you. This is simple, basic cooking that when done even with average ingredients works. Would be useful to have an index or contents as sometimes its hard to find the recipe you want but its not a huge book so not too hard.

Also while I cannot verify it does have an authentic feel with little stories on the origins on different sauces (many recipes from her friends) and the history of a traditional Ragu (takes 24 hours and I haven't tried it) or Bolognese.

Surely a book from 1987 that is still getting reviewed and bought on Amazon can't be bad.

Enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy:, 3 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Camera Buddy 120GB (Camera)
I bought two of these to take travelling. Both had faults within 1 month of usage.

1. The battery life is non existent and cannot be relied on and you constantly think that it'll run out at any time.
2. Frequently freezes.
3. Doesn't always copy the photos.

One of them broke and I almost lost all the photos from it and it took 2 days until it worked long enough to get all the photos off.

I have a vosonic hard drive and this has been far more reliable even though it is older and been abused much more.

Don't be cheap and pay a little bit more and get piece of mind.
