I should start by saying that this book is incredibly `Italian' in terms of design; it is stunning to look at and the pictures are worthy of a coffee table book - which is perhaps where it's best to keep it!
Having grown up in a house with Italian grandparents and a father who is an Italian chef, I was surprised to find that the recipes were largely unrecognisable, time consuming and fussy. I'm sure that if you have a great deal of money to spend (someone has already mentioned the huge amount of ingredients required) and limitless amounts of time then this is the book for you, otherwise I'd try and go for something more substance over style!
