Early recipes from Lidia's Italian Kitchen. I love her PBS cooking series, so have collected all of her books, early and current. Love the recipes! Great tasting food!

This book is perfect for italian-americans who already know the basics of real italian/italian-american food: garlic, olive oil, parsley and often a little pepperoncino. Another reviewer complained that there were few pictures in the book -- well the audience that this book best serves already knows exactly what a kale bruschetta looks like; the beauty of the book being that it's inspirational, and a little different than Southern-Italian cooking. Lidia's from the northeast of Italy, but this is not austrian nor croatian food -- take what you know and use it to make "gnocchi with butternut squash sauce,""garganelli with pheasant in guazzetto," and panna cotta. Lidia's recipes are extremely easy to follow and are well-organized. They look like a well-educated female italian relative wrote out her best stuff for you. Expand your reportoire in a way that's easy and suitable for your cooking style -- buy this book.

I continually go back to this book to look for meat and seafood dishes that fit with Italian-American tastes but that are new and different. The other night I made pomegranate roasted chicken with Gran Marnier, brandy, and rosemary. Also good is baked squid with potatoes and parsley, cheese and herb ravioli(ricotta, ricotta salata,parmigiano,mascarpone)that is good made with any greens and topped with a sage/light cream sauce. If you're like me and didn't know many Italian meat dishes (my Neapolitan family kind of doesn't know what to do with it), you will love it if only for what you learn about meat. You won't see the brilliance of this book until you try the recipes. Very very good for the somewhat experienced cook.

Disappointed. Most recipes require ingredients not readily avaialbe in rural America.
