Editorial Reviews


"I love this book for the same reasons I love Deb and Gabriele. It is filled with passion and reminds us all how food always brings people together." —MICHAEL SYMON

"Gabriele and Debi create rustic Italian food the way I like it: cooked at home for family and friends. Like vinegar and oil, Gabriele and Debi are brilliant opposites and everything they touch is better and more delicious." —MARIO BATALI

Extra Virgin is a terrific book. I want to eat at Gabriele and Debi's house. Now.” —ANTHONY BOURDAIN

“I was married in Tuscany and the food of this region—straight-forward, earthy, romantic yet rustic, is very special and evocative to me. This book, like Deb, is a true beauty. —RACHAEL RAY

“Debi and Gabriele's Extra Virgin makes me yearn for the flavors of Italy. Amazing pastas, sun ripened salads, and savory dishes from the grill and the oven. Angry Lobster pasta, please.” —BOBBY FLAY

“There isn't a kitchen I would rather eavesdrop and peep into than Gabriele and Debi's. Extra Virgin has smartly chosen recipes, deft cooking, and drips with easy going sensuality.” —ANDREW ZIMMERN

“Recipes made with love by two people truly in love are what you have here. This book is the perfect place to turn for their delicious recipes and love on a plate.” —SUNNY ANDERSON

“The spirit of Tuscany and its delicious, heartwarming, family-oriented cuisine is all over this beautiful cookbook, and will inspire home cooks everywhere.” —NANCY SILVERTON

Extra Virgin is a soulful cookbook that brings love of food and family together with healthy, light, and luscious Italian dishes. Their book left me wanting more as only food and love can.” —CAT CORA

“This is a beautiful book—rich and gloriously realized. I can't wait to open some wine and start cooking!” —GEOFFREY ZAKARIAN

"I can't wait to share this book with my wife, because believe it or not, I may be the chef, but she rules the kitchen." —MICHAEL WHITE

“This is the definitive Tuscan cookbook, filled with savory recipes, gorgeous photography, and charming anecdotes.” —DREW NIEPORENT

"I can't cook to save my life, but if I could, I would walk vicariously into Deb’s kitchen wearing her black patent stilettos, and scream in my best Brooklyn accent, ‘Get it while it’s hot!'" —MADONNA

"Mmmmm! Tuscan-y! Yum, yum, yum!" —PAUL “PEE-WEE HERMAN” REUBENS

“This book is delicious.” —MARTIN SCORSESE

I love Debi and Gabriele's show on the Cooking Channel. I've made many of their recipes and they have all garnered stellar reviews. They have made me fall in love with Tuscan food and I couldn't be more happy with this gorgeous book that was just delivered.

I was thrilled to see that the book has the Roast Pork recipe with sage and rosemary - one of the best pork loin recipes I have made. The book is beautiful and the photos are stunning!

I'm editing this review as I have had further time to review the book - and am pleased that many of the recipes from the show are included in this book. I'm of the school (being the founder of the Cookbook Junkies) that I'd rather have a beautiful book in my hand than a sheet of paper while cooking. I can wholeheartedly recommend Gabriele and Debi's recipes - they work, are rustic and delicious. The beef stew, lasagna, pasta alla gricia, and tiramusi are just a few of the dishes I have made and are perfect - and am looking forward to the risotto with carrot honey that I am making this week as well as many others.

Gabriele has given me permission to start a group to cook through the book so - please come join us! Search Cooking through Extra Virgin - Recipes and Love from our Tuscan Kitchen on Facebook.

I love to cook. I love to eat. After spending thousands of dollars on books and magazines that just continued to disappointed me, I swore that I would never buy anything again. I even got to the point where I was tired of cooking shows on tv. I stopped watching them completely. Several years later, I was going through channels, and saw Extra Virgin. I just watched at first. Debi and Gabriele slowly memorized me with their genuine passion for food, I started to try their recipes, one by one. Each recipe I tried, exceeded my expectations. Not only that, it's so easy to follow! When they said they were going to release a book, I knew I had to get one. I pre-ordered it.

Their book is beautiful and filled with so much passion and love. I have never read a cookbook that had so much genuineness in it! They go into so much details about everything. Everything is so simple, yet tastes so elegant. Also, I've tried about half of their recipes and I have yet to find one that isn't fantastic. I'm learning so much about Tuscan food. I'm learning about foods I didn't know of! Like Speck or Guanciale. I now have to go to Italy. I have to go to Florence. I have to eat there. I even want to live there. That's how much passion and love Debi and Gabriele show in this book.

If you haven't gotten your copy yet, get it while it's still in print! This will be one of those cookbooks that you wish you had or be glad you bought it. Thank you so much Debi and Gabriele for all your hard work and dedication, it has gotten me back cooking new recipes again!!!

I also have never written a review for any product, anywhere.

I got the book and was tearing into it like it was Christmas morning! I love the show and even watch the reruns. I use to DVR the ones I wanted to be sure to cook. I learned how to make homemade mozzarella and limoncello! You have not lived until you have made homemade mozzarella. Take a tip from Gabriel and get the kids or as for me the grand kids involved, they will love it AND eat it like crazy. The recipes are not to many ingredients and unlike some others you can find the ingredients you need at your local market. The book is beautifully illustrated and I am so excited to start cooking through it. A must have REAL ITALIAN book for your collection! You will use it more than you think. I just have made the ROASTED PORK LOIN and the Limoncello so I thought I would post a picture for you. The taste is as good as it looks and not even a drinker but all my friends want the Limoncello which I have resting right now and they will get it on the 4th of July weekend! The fresh herbs make a big difference and I have my herb boxes that are growing very well. The recipes are truly delicious and EASY to follow directions. Hope you enjoy!

My Great Grandmother and Great Grandfather were from Italy and my Mother (their Granddaughter) taught me how to cook. While she was a very good cook and teacher, lots can be lost in a couple generations born in America, a kind of Americanized version of Italian cooking, usually overcomplicated. I barely remember my Great Grandmother but I do remember she didn't speak english but she sure could cook. I can still taste and smell her cooking even though I was only maybe 4 years old when she passed. This cookbook made me feel as though she were standing right behind me, showing me the way she cooked! This book is really full of heart, soul, lots of love and really great, easy to make authentic recipes! I felt inspired just reading through it and came up with some wonderful spinoffs of my own and after all isn't that what makes a great cookbook? One that not only has wonderful recipes but one that brings out your own creativity. I already have olive oil splattered all over it and notes on several pages. Now, thats a book you know is good! Can't wait for the next one while I'm cooking my way through this one! BRAVO, My Great Grandmother is smiling!
P.S. Loved the photo with the old chipped Deruta plate, beauty is not always perfection!
