Delicious Italian dishes and family favourites explained in concise, easy to follow recipes. I've made spaghetti carbonara twice, which is made with eggs not cream! Who knew?

I'd been looking through an Ottolenghi cookery book because I wanted to make some of his lovely rice dishes that have vegetables in them -- wanting substitutes for stodgy potatoes or just plain brown or white rice as an accompaniment to meat and fish. Marie Claire Cuisine offers these plus inventive Spring/Summer salads, and quite a few Asian style dishes with chicken, shrimp, squid or beef. The illustrations are to die for and a great enticement to try the dishes. I've made the fennel and grapefruit salad (p.130) twice with the suggested accompaniment of cold sliced pork roast. It was delightfully different and refreshing for Spring. It's a beautiful book and is responsive to the way many of us want to eat now -- light, fresh and using creative combinations of vegetables, fruit and Asian spices.
