      Enjoyed this cookbook, there are recipes I look forward to making.

      I've gotten into the (probably good) habit of checking cookbooks out from the library to preview them before buying and/or adding to the wish list. My cookbook collection already exceeds the space available to it, so I'm thinking this is a prudent habit - and one I should've picked up some time ago.This book had to go back to the library before we had a chance to cook from it - which is really too bad, as the recipes seemed even more approachable than many in Molto Italiano, which we already own [...]

      This has a number of great traditional italian recipes along with new ideas to add interesting flavors/options to your menu. Recipes appears to be easy to follow and there's quite a bit of culinary background information on tools and ingredients as well.

      The original Batali and still one of the better books in his repertoire.

      Few recipes my family would be willing to eat or I would be interested in cooking.

      Mario: Love his cooking, love his show, love his history of food, love his passion for food and it's history. If you are a fan, be sure to read HEAT by Bill Buford.
