Honest, Authentic Italian Food,
This review is from: Two Greedy Italians (Hardcover)
I loved this book. It's written in a really down to earth way, with no pretentious language or complicated cooking techniques. I also love how Antonio and Gennaro share some of the foods they enjoyed as children - some of these are very simple while others are more extravagant. Recipes are accompanied by brilliant, evocative photography of the food itself and also of Gennaro and Antonio while on their travels. There are also sections of the book where they talk about religion, the family and street food for example, which puts all the recipes into context. If you love real, authentic and traditional Italian food, you will love this book.
