Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Caggiano (Northern Italian Cooking, a northern California restaurateur, offers an appealing array of some 200 recipes. Rigatoni with mushrooms, prosciutto and cream, and chicken with herbs are typical of the delightfully fresh dishes that can be prepared with a minimum of fuss. Experienced cooks will enjoy more challenging fare like pasta roll stuffed with spinach and cheese, which calls for homemade pasta to be rolled out by hand. Many will be pleased by the variety of regional recipes represented, from alpine pasta and chick-pea soup or apple strudel with raisins, pine nuts and jam to Neapolitan fusilli with meat sauce or calzone stuffed with cheese. Caggiano confidently nudges at the cuisine's boundaries, presenting cucumber and pink grapefruit salad as a logical variation of classic Sicilian oranges and fennel, and cold roast beef with capers and anchoviesthe Italian version of a quintessentially English dish. The division of the recipes into spring/summer and fall/winter sections is only a minor nuisance. Illustrations not seen by PW.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Paolo Gaudiano on December 28, 1999
Format: Paperback
Being from Italy I am very skeptical about italian cookbooks. When I found this one in a bookstore I thought it looked better than any cookbook I had seen. I have now owned it for about 10 years and have given it to countless friends as a gift. I have made a majority of the recipes and have never been disappointed. I am particularly happy with how simple most recipes are: as is the case with true Italian cooking, only a few ingredients and a little bit of time can make some spectacular dishes. Without question an excellent book for anyone wishing to experiment with Italian cooking, and even for Italians longing for some great recipes.

Format: Paperback
I have used this book for several years and cooked many of the recipes in the book. Everything I have made has turned out great, and a few of the recipes have become standard fare for our dinner parties including the lamb stew with marsala. One of my favorite recipes is the Osso Bucco which is a twist on the classic recipe with its use of red bell peppers. It does take some time to prepare, but it is well worth the effort! This is the main book I use for cooking and I recommend it highly!

We love this book so much, we wore out the first copy. This is our SECOND COPY! This cookbook from Biba is excellent. The recipes are actually authentic (at least from my childhood.)

Format: Paperback
I have a bookshelf full of cookbooks. The ones I don't use, I give away, so the shelf is only full of the books that I use regularly. However, this is far and away the one that I use the most! I love this cookbook. I have never been disappointed with any of the recipes in this book. I received this cookbook 18 years ago from an Italian-American friend who is a phenomenal cook. I LOVE it. I have given it to many friends. My husband and I bought 5 copies used on the internet since this lovely book is out of print. We kept two copies for our children (5 and 7) and have given the others away as wedding gifts. What else can I say. I LOVE THIS BOOK, and find the recipes easy, tasty, and a great hit at parties.
