Format: Hardcover
I own 200 cookbooks of which 30 on Italian cooking and this book comes second only to "CULINARIA ITALY" by KONEMANN.It is virtually packed with information about Italy and its food ,all accompanied by hundreds of full colour photographs of the land, the food ,the techniques and the people.Descriptions of the growing of certain vegetables,of the making of essential ingredients(e.g. pasta ,both in the home and in factories)and of the particular cuisine and tastes of every region ,make this book an immensely satisfying and enjoyable book to read. There is a plethora of recipes, authentic and tasty and explanations on the many preserved meats, salamis and cheeses of Italy.If you are interested in Italian cooking, or Italy as a land this book is essential.

Format: Paperback
This book is 50% A-Z description of Italian ingredients, organised into categories; and 50% recipes and illustrations. The book describes the ingredients in a lot of detail and illustrations are well chosen. I would buy the book for the A-Z. The recipes are fine, but more showcases of the usage of some of the ingredients. The author is an Italian restaurateur living in London and seems to travel extensively to Italy. This is a guarantee for quite a bit of authenticity of the information.

Wow !

What a find on Amazon.com !

$ 33. USD hardcover on EBAY, plus shipping, but only .74 cents for the same item on Amazon.

Carluccio's Complete is not just a recipe book, but an encyclopedia of Italian and English terms, and descriptions of game, fish, fowl, meat, cheeses, vegetables, and other regional Italian specialties.

I have this next to my Larousse Gastronomic, but it is referenced more. A real treasure !
