    She is thorough in describing the techniques and ingredients used in these otherwise fairly simple and straightforward recipes that I always feel in good hands. After living in Italy myself, I also like to chart the ways in which she has integrated important Italian culinary culture, and language that expresses it. She works hard for the money, and I appreciate it!

    Nancy Silverton is a fabulous chef that I have followed for years.

They all turn out really well and are super tasty.I recently ...

    Honestly, I did not like the layout of this book at all. From the format of the font to what felt to me to be sloppy style, I simply didn't enjoy reading or using this book. I think cook books are a bit more difficult to review because, in my mind, there are two aspects to the book itself - the writing and the recipes. The reason I say that is that to a certain extent, the writing is what makes the recipes accessible. My challenge for me is that ...

    the recipes are long, but silverton mentions this at the beginning anyways, so you're prepared when you dive in (so long as you read the intro). she says she hopes you won't get discouraged by the length, but i hate to claim that this did deter me (1.5 pages for a crostini or salad recipe??), even though i love to cook/bake.the pictures were sparse (watch out, those who want a picture of everything), but the ones that were there were gorgeous. i ...

    I think if I could only have one cookbook it would be this one. With recipes for pasta, pizza and cheese what more could you want? But there's so much more. The recipes are very well-written and detailed, something you don't often see in many new cookbooks. I'm only disappointed that there aren't photos of every dish and that the photos that are in the book aren't captioned. A big pet peeve of mine.

    There are eight recipes in this book that interest me. Considering the size of the book and the cost, not worth an investment. The pictures are great - which I love in a cookbook. But over all, not one of my top ten. It lacks inventiveness.

    Made several recipes - all turned out tasty! Only 4 stars because it needs more pictures, and some more thorough explanations of certain specific techniques used in the book (e.g. making orcchiette pasta).

    The pizza recipe alone is worth the price.
