Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Generally, a good cookbook is one with traditional and contemporary recipes, quality color photography, and clear instructions anyone can follow. A great cookbook includes all the above and educates us on every page, making us more knowledgeable culinarians. In her fifth cookbook (see also Dolci, 2011; The Opera Lover’s Cookbook, 2006), Segan not only fulfills the great vision but also enables us to virtually visit Italy’s 20 regions and savor its pastas. No piece of information is too arcane to omit. She’ll inform us about the passive cooking trend and different shapes of pasta, about the uniqueness of the Jerusalem artichoke and the richness of Carnevale foods. Segan will also not stint on the prefatory details (i.e., the basics) that quite a few authors rush through. She takes time to explain the how-to’s, selection process, and skill-building. But, oh, the pastas you’ll experience! Not content with the same ol’ same ol’, she identifies the ones most guaranteed to please American palates, whose names alone will seduce: ricotta bites, bucatini dome, trout and snails, meat and pear open ravioli, pancake pasta, and chocolate-stuffed shells. She lives up to her own billing, well demonstrating a “fierce, profound, and zealous reverence for Italian pastas.” Pasta glossary (in photographs) appended. --Barbara Jacobs

Format: Hardcover
This is one of those wonderful cookbooks that brings a whole host of new flavors into your home. But the surprise to me is the relative simplicity of the recipes. I never thought I'd be able to make fresh pasta dishes during the week, but last night I made a most delicious "Incannulate con Olive" and the whole operation took less than 90 minutes. There's something here for every palate and, so far, each recipe has felt like a new discovery. Highest rating!

My daughter bought this cookbook for me and I plan to cook the entire book! There are so many recipes that bring back memories of long dinners with my big Italian family. Pasta Modern opens with “Here in the states, we imagine Italy populated by black-clad grandmas, patiently stirring enormous pots of tomato sauce for Sunday’s family dinner. But today’s Italy is a different scene: vibrant, ever-changing, and moving forward.” Francine Segan shows us just how true that is! The recipes are authentic, from many different regions in Italy and are presented with a description of the meaning behind the recipe and how it was traditionally used. Some newly invented recipes like Pasta Sushi (yes, Pasta Sushi!) are particularly intriguing. I found every recipe category to mostly use dried, ready-made pasta, which is very helpful. I was concerned that there would be hard to find ingredients, but you can find most items at your local Italian grocery store or a specialty store. There is truly something for everyone’s tastes in Pasta Modern – a stunning presentation of pasta.

I was so happy to receive my copy of Pasta Modern and Francine Segan does not disappoint. The front of the cookbook offers educational cooking tips such as, how to choose your own pasta, quality ingredients and even a section on how to fine-tune your pasta cooking skills. This really empowers the home cook to approach cooking pasta the way Italians do! Each recipe features a brief description of the history behind the dish, the region and the recipe. This will make for not only amusing dinner conversation, but also helps you understand the flavor profile. A highlight chapter for me is the Pasta for Dessert, which has recipes such as Chocolate-Stuffed Shells, Pasta Truffles and even a Sweet Pistachio Couscous. The book is filled with beautiful, bright photos that really bring each dish to life. There is also a special section in the back that is “Pasta Glossary” with over 50 noodle shapes and types with photos and descriptions. Pasta Modern is a cookbook that features tradition and centuries old recipes - one that every pasta lover should add to their collection.
