"I love this book for the same reasons I love Deb and Gabriele. It is filled with passion and reminds us all how food always brings people together." —MICHAEL SYMON
"Gabriele and Debi create rustic Italian food the way I like it: cooked at home for family and friends. Like vinegar and oil, Gabriele and Debi are brilliant opposites and everything they touch is better and more delicious." —MARIO BATALI
“Extra Virgin is a terrific book. I want to eat at Gabriele and Debi's house. Now.” —ANTHONY BOURDAIN
“I was married in Tuscany and the food of this region—straight-forward, earthy, romantic yet rustic, is very special and evocative to me. This book, like Deb, is a true beauty. —RACHAEL RAY
“Debi and Gabriele's Extra Virgin makes me yearn for the flavors of Italy. Amazing pastas, sun ripened salads, and savory dishes from the grill and the oven. Angry Lobster pasta, please.” —BOBBY FLAY
“There isn't a kitchen I would rather eavesdrop and peep into than Gabriele and Debi's. Extra Virgin has smartly chosen recipes, deft cooking, and drips with easy going sensuality.” —ANDREW ZIMMERN

"I can't cook to save my life, but if I could, I would walk vicariously into Deb’s kitchen wearing her black patent stilettos, and scream in my best Brooklyn accent, ‘Get it while it’s hot!'" —MADONNA

I was thrilled to see that the book has the Roast Pork recipe with sage and rosemary - one of the best pork loin recipes I have made. The book is beautiful and the photos are stunning!
I'm editing this review as I have had further time to review the book - and am pleased that many of the recipes from the show are included in this book. I'm of the school (being the founder of the Cookbook Junkies) that I'd rather have a beautiful book in my hand than a sheet of paper while cooking. I can wholeheartedly recommend Gabriele and Debi's recipes - they work, are rustic and delicious. The beef stew, lasagna, pasta alla gricia, and tiramusi are just a few of the dishes I have made and are perfect - and am looking forward to the risotto with carrot honey that I am making this week as well as many others.
Gabriele has given me permission to start a group to cook through the book so - please come join us! Search Cooking through Extra Virgin - Recipes and Love from our Tuscan Kitchen on Facebook.
The photos, however, could've been better, more focused - a bit too blurred. Though the photos aren't the food itself, they represent the food, and, to me, don't represent well.
I would, though, recommend this book to anyone based on the joy with which the recipes are given to us all and the perfection of the food's soulfulness. This Tuscan food is truly a celebration of life.
I look forward to more from Gabriele and his tradition's gift of this essential, beautiful-in-it's-simplicity, lovely cuisine.
