Editorial Reviews

Review

"There's a happy quality to certain cookbooks: some mix of personality, light touch, simple organization, and warmth, and a winning percentage of must-cook recipes. Jamie Oliver's books have it. Jacques Pepin's recent, grand Essential Pepin has it. So does Pasta Italiana. Produced in Britain and authored by a TV food personality who is a "leading supplier of Italian ingredient to the UK food industry," it seems an unlikely import. However, this book is a chockablock with simple recipes that you will want to cook tonight: Shell Pasta with Peas, Carrots, Pancetta, and Chile; Spaghetti with Sicilian Pesto; Linguine with Crab, Fresh Chile and Lemon Zest (a lemony treat). A few are rich, many inherently light. If pasta makes you happy, then this will, as the Chinese would say, give you double happiness." --Cooking Light, March 2012

A pasta book? I hear you asking. What is this, the '70s? Of all the hundreds of once and future pasta books in print, why single out one? The short answer, I think, is design. With its bold colors and process photos, Pasta Italiana is a joy to look at and use, and it's full of accessible recipes that are nevertheless not overly familiar. It's linguine with crab, fresh chili and lemon zest rather than white clam sauce. It's rigatoni with asparagus, peas and porcini. These are fast, vegetable-friendly pastas for a summer night when you've got better things to do than sweat over your bolognese for three hours.”—2012’s Best Summer Cookbooks by NPR

I was lookin for healthy italian cookbooks and ended up with one by Gino D'Acampo-all the recipes I made from that one were excellent, so I purchased a few more including this one. He has strong opinions and lots of photos of himself, but once I saw video of him from British TV I saw that he is a "character", lots of fun, and so I take the signs of egotism with a grain of salt! The only impediment for American readers are that you must convert to non metric measurements. I think it is well worth it. The food is excellent.

I have several Italian cookbooks and I love them all, but I adore this one. It is simple, easy and fresh. A lot of the items I already make, but I do like seeing them in books. The photography makes you want to get on an airplane and head for Italy immediately.
