Aimed at cooks of every level, be they beginners of accomplished chefs, it is an accessible and comprehensive guide to authentic Italian cuisine and should find a place in the kitchen library of anyone who is passionate about good food. 'Has yet to be bettered ...my copy is splattered with gnocchi, tomato sauce, gravy and oil, but I wouldn't replace it for the world. It does what it says on the tin, and more.' Kate Colquhoun, 'The Best 50 Cookbooks', Independent 'Brilliant' Heston Blumenthal 'There are dozens of Italian cookbooks on the market, but The Essentials Of Classic Italian Cooking is the only one you need to buy. No glossy photos; just 700 pages of wonderful recipes and instruction in basics such as bread-making. And all with the kind of detailed teaching left out of books that give more space to pictures than to text. A classic.' Guardian 'Truly indispensable' -- Nigel SlaterRead Less
A great cookbook - Up there with Joy of Cooking and Julia Child's French Cooking and the NYTimes Cookbook.
For serious home chefs.

If you want to cook "Italian"
Using Hazan's book on Italian cooking is the only way to cook authentically Italian. I would not use anything else. Food is good and easy to prepare. Methods and ingredients are converted into American usage, so no translation is needed.
