The Perfect Italian Cookbook and Food Guide
January 11, 2012
My husband and I live in Italy and wanted to learn more about Italian food and techniques, but our Italian isn't quite good enough to jump straight into an all-Italian cookbook. The first 40 or so pages of this cookbook spell out the heritage of certain Italian dishes and explain culturally why some dishes come from certain places. From beautiful pictures to maps of the provinces and thick pages, I'm just thrilled with this cookbook! During our time here, I'm hoping to cook my way through the entire book. For now, I've loved the eggplant involtini and the linguine with clams was such a crowd pleaser for dinner! Great value for a really great guide to Italian food! Bravissimo!
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality
