5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!! July 6, 2014
This was such a great book! I love to cook and I am always looking for new and exciting recipes to try. This book didn't disappoint. I absolutely love the recipe that was given for spaghetti. It tastes so great and it makes my stomach happy! I was impressed by the wide selection of recipes that the book offered. The cover alone was enough to make me want to read this one. I love Italian food and if you do too, this book will make your heart/stomach so happy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes as well as stories July 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't know what to expect before I loaded this on to my Kindle and started reading. The premise of the novel is a set of Italian recipes with each one accompanied by a story. This is the first of its kind that I've ever read or even heard of, so I thought I'd give it a chance and wasn't disappointed after finishing it a few days ago.

Daniel does a great job of creating the recipes and making sure that each one feels authentic and taste wonderful. All of the stories with each recipe is also well done and does a great job of connecting the food to the story. It's hard to figure out which one is more enjoyable. The story side or the recipe side of this novel, but I had to chose it would be the recipe side of the novel as the recipes are truly great and highlight Italian cuisine.

If you're looking for a great cook book to give you some great Italian dishes to try out all courses, with a few stories to read while your food is cooking, then this is definitely the book you've been looking for. As it does a splendid job of creating wonderful, quality meals.

4.0 out of 5 stars authentic Italian cooking June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many of the recipes are very close to those, my grandmother,who was from Sicily, made. These recipes are very good. My only critique is that the book could be edited better, but the recipes are very good. Buy the book if you want authentic italian recipes.
