Top Customer Reviews
The book concludes with recipes for ravioli, several fillings (including the cream cheese version) and related Italian specialties from the Ligurian region of Italy. Although the author clearly prefers traditional methods, there are detailed instructions for making pasta dough by hand as well as by mixer and for rolling it out by hand as well as with a pasta machine.
