Wonderful! Excellent! Amazing! Bravo, Nigella!,
This review is from: Nigellissima: Easy Italian-Inspired Recipes (Hardcover)
Okay, I'm Italian-American, so I tend to be enthusiastic about Italian food to begin with.
I'm also a huge Nigella fan.
And I totally love what Nigella has come up with in this about-to-be instant classic ... a beautiful and wonderful take on Italian food from her unique (and much beloved!) perspective.
I just got the book last night and I already see so many things I want to make right now, this minute ... Calabrian Lasagna, Green Pasta with Blue Cheese, Tomatoes/Mozzarella/Basil - My Way, Chocolate Pasta with Pecans and Caramel ... to name just a very few!
Plus the layout is beautiful and really readable - one recipe per page with a nice clear ingredients list and a very-helpful bolding for the key parts of the instructions. Fantastic photos (as usual with her books) and all of her excellent asides ... the things that make a Nigella book a Nigella book in the first place.
And no repeated recipes ... everything here for the first time in book form. (A few are from articles, she says. But they're all brand-new to me.)
And it's a lovely book too. The cover is lovely.
All around a million per cent recommended!
