Format: Hardcover
I'm not usually a fan of restaurant cookbooks, but the words "Simple, Seasonal, Italian" on the front cover called to me, and hinted that this might not be a typical restaurant cookbook. (Meaning: Full of regionally-sourced, hard-to-find and expensive ingredients and complicated, fancy cooking; at least that's been my experience lately.) And even though my research told me that Franny's became popular because of its pizza, I knew--just by looking at the cover--that this was not (just) a cookbook of pizza recipes. Looking through the Table of Contents didn't give much insight into the type of recipes I might find inside. But my heart started thumping as soon as I read the names of the recipes in the first chapter "Crostini". Yes, this book was not only calling me, it was hollering to me!

And I'm so glad I listened, because I've not been disappointed. I could rely on this single cookbook all summer long and be happy. This is the nicest and most user-friendly "restaurant" cookbook I've ever run across. There are so many good recipes that are mouth-watering just reading through them. They are not difficult recipes either. (For the most part, that is; I'll get more into that later in my review.) Plus, as I went through, page by page, there was the alluring realization that the authors of this book actually care about what they do and the love shines--brightly--through. It is obvious that the people involved in this restaurant are attentive, conscientious, and very good at putting flavors together.

But I can't disregard the fact that this is, first and foremost, a book featuring recipes from an Italian-oriented restaurant, and the recipes were created by the people who prepare the meals in this top quality and busy place.

My husband and I eat at Franny's and shop at Brooklyn Larder as often as possible. I was so excited when I received the book today. I immediately went through it and noticed they had a lot of the recipes for the dishes they make at Franny's and Larder. Can't wait to try the recipes, although food always seems to taste better when someone else cooks it.

I bought this book because I read that the gelato recipes were worth the price of the book. I have made two flavors of the gelato and they were easy to prepare and had great taste. I can't wait to make the remaining gelato recipes.

Format: Hardcover
Good variety of the many dishes that you might find at Franny's. It's one of my favorite restaurants, and the cooking comes through clearly in this book. Unlike many restaurant cookbooks, it seems like the authors took the time to make all of the dishes in a home kitchen. The book is full of helpful insights and advice peppered around the recipes which will translate to very manageable preparation. I love the ideas, and find myself often riffing off of the recipes, mixing things up based on what is seasonally available while honoring the spirit or palette of a particular recipe. I had been making my own pizza dough and was very happy with it, but recently tried the Franny's recipe which turned out to be much better than mine. This book has added a lot of options to my family lunches and dinners, and I am grateful for it!

I have read and used A LOT of Italian cook books. This one has a lot of good ideas, especially in the sections on small bites and crostini . If you are a pizza lover and are brave enough to give it a serious try at home -- a questionable enterprise in my apartment kitchen -- this has all the recipes you need. Solid work.

I love the restaurant. The recipes are simple and delicious. Take a look through first. Some people I know find it too simplistic. But I've made several recipes that are delicious and if you like the restaurant you will like the book!

I have not made one recipe in this book that did not turn out fabulously. The title says it all; amazing Italian fare that is indeed, simple to prepare.

I've made it a hobby over the years to collect unique but practical cookbooks. Franny's has been a great addition. I've not been to Franny's, but the book is written in a way that definitely makes you want to book a reservation. I love cookbooks that combine great recipes, beautiful pictures and importantly story-telling that gives a bit more insight into chefs, restaurants and cuisine. Franny's cookbook does that nicely. The home-made pizza recipes are wonderful, and practical for any at-home cook. The book also dedicates a ton of space to at-home charcuterie, which is not my thing, but I appreciate it as a cooking enthusiast nonetheless.
