Briliant in every way. Beautiful, unaffected writing and simple Italian cooking the way it really is in Italy. This book shows me how to cook like my Italian friends. But what a surprise when I unpacked it - this elegant, classic work is printed so cheaply that even the title on the cover is lop-sided, the pages inside are packed with print to within a millimetre of the top of the page, the quality of the paper is horrible, and so on, the book is fat and tightly bound and will never lie flat or sit well in the hands. As bad as some of the horrible Penguin reprints of Elizabeth David or Jane Grigson classics - grey paper and grey print and everything printed squint and lopsided.

I'm really not a bibliophile - just I think this writer deserves better than this. Some drawings or photos would be nice too, but the main thing is the quality of the book. I hope we'll see a hardback edition some day that does justice to this marvellous writer.

This is an excellent book. One does not need photos, because Anna is so good at describing the dishes that one can almost smell the fragrance of the end product. I tried many recipes from this book, and they have all been a success.

What Delia is to English cooking Anna Del Conte does the same for Italian cooking

I've had this book a couple of weeks now and have made a few things from it - it's all been brilliant so far, I can't recommend this book highly enough!
