Simplify your sandwiches the Italian way!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Simple Italian Sandwiches: Recipes from America's Favorite Panini Bar (Hardcover)
Marold's review is spot on and I recommend and concur with it; it does a salient and well written job of describing this book and its culinary context among other sandwich cookbooks.
Just to add my own few additions: it is a small tome, but well done in content, written, photographic and recipe coverage. Its focus is limited to Italian with accompanying condiments and is only about 1/3 concerning panini. So for those looking for only panini, 2/3 will be irrelevant. But do not overlook possibilites of the brushetta and tramezzini here exhibited.
Ingredients are easy to obtain if sufficient deli/bakery source for Italian bread/meats available. Would have been nice additon to show some sources online for ingredients and panini presses, etc.
Truly good, simple delicisio foods to make, serve and enjoy.

Rod, buddy...It's bruschetta and pronounced bru-sket-a, not bru-shet-a (and you hold the t sound a little since there are two of them). I hope everyone who enjoys a good Italian sandwhich of this kind enjoys a panino, not a panini. Panini are more than one panino. As you can have one tramezzino and several tramezzini. Same thing for a yummy canolo. Or, if you're a pig like me, a couple of canoli.
