Back in New York City, I haunted book shops and the Library for an American "translation" of PENNE AL RADICCHIO E PANCETTA. A friend found it for us in "Trattoria Cooking" and gave us the book as a gift.
I cannot tell you how many times this easy-to-use, non-intimidating volume has saved dinner. The book is loaded with simple, authentic, family-style recipes. Every single one I've tried has turned out perfectly the first time, including the penne which is still one of my favorites. Caggiano does not drown her collection with overripe prose. Instead, she explains in one or two paragraphs why she has chosen the recipe and the region and specific trattoria it comes from. She also suggests the best wine to go with dinner. No glossy magazine photos either. Just good food. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
A small word of caution needs to be offered. Beware those of you who are calorie conscious. This book is not moderate in its results. Your grandmother's grandmother would be proud of these recipes. You will want to eat more of this wonderful stuff.
This is a nice big hardcover, but no pictures.
