The layout of the book is simple and as such easy to follow. Jeni's description of the different types of pasta makes it easy to prepare the menu and mood of the meal be it for a dinner party or just a family pasta evening meal.
Regional location of how, why and where the pasta originates from has actually given some insight to why some combinations in preparation and content do and don't work, not to mention some ideas for experimentation in flavour and presentation.
A preamble of the dish is provided with every recipe followed by the ingredients list, short sharp and nothing left to the imagination, makes it simple to check the pantry and make up the "shopping list".
The 1, 2, 3, step-by-step approach with insert photos again adds to the simplicity in the preparation and making of the pasta dish. The more involved dishes, like the making Ravioli, maintain the same step-by-step approach.
Now I know how to make Spaghetti with Anchovies & Olives with out over doing the Anchovies.
A good read, for the Beginner and the Proficient. Also makes a great present!!
The only downfall for me is that it doesn't even mention gnocchi, which are my favorite.
I am buying 3 or 4 books as gifts, and one for my college son in his new apartment with a kitchen! Buy it!
