Bloody brilliant book. Excellent recipes, excellent photography - not just photos of the food but photos of the markets, the farmers, the cooks. It's almost a photojournalistic essay that follows food from the soil to the plate. Plenty of vegan recipes too. Most of the recipes are easy and don't take long to cook. It's split up into various sections - vegetables, beans, risotto, pasta, bread, cakes. And a couple of others that I can't remember. I've had this book from the library for over a year and I wish I could keep it.
If you are vegetarian and you like Italian food, then this might be the best book you'll buy. Except now it's unavailable so you'll have to borrow it from the library.
