My current copy of the book, purchased in 1977 is falling apart.
If you get only one book on Italian cooking, either The Classic Italian Cookbook or the Essentials of Italian Cooking are your book.
This book is excellent- simple recipes that are fairly easy to make and thoroughly enjoyable--to make and eat!.
Though it took a long time in transit, it arrived within the proposed time. The jacket is a little worn but the book is in fine condition. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Judith Anderson
