Review

"James Beard Award winner Green teams up again with photographer Legato (after The Fishmonger’s Apprentice) to produce a beautifully photographed directory on how to make all types of pasta in your own kitchen, with just a few kitchen tools. And don’t think only of Italian—there are a few representative recipes from other countries, such as pot stickers, pierogi, and udon noodles. Recipes vary by shape, flour type, and flavoring. By following the easy, step-by-step instructions and hundreds of photographs, readers will be inspired to make their own delicious creations. The book contains many useful extras such as nutrition information, resources, and a glossary, but those who want to serve a homemade sauce along with their pasta fresca may need to consult another resource. VERDICT: This is a terrific choice for any library as it will be useful for both experts and novices alike. Mangia!"—Library Journal

I have a lot of cookbooks, anymore it takes a pretty special cookbook to get my heart thumping and inspires me to immediately take it in the kitchen and get to cooking. Making Artisan Pasta is just such a book. I have other pasta books, such as the joy of pasta, and usually they are maybe 25% actual pasta recipes, and the rest is sauce or soup or casseroles using the pasta. There is nothing wrong with that, but Making Artisan Pasta is a book about the pasta, about what ingredients to use, how to use them, how to make the pasta, form the pasta, and tons and tons of ideas and tips on making amazing pasta.

The pictures are simply inspirational. From step by step photos of how to accomplish making the pasta, to beautiful and inspiring finished products. This book could be intimidating, working with dough and various ingredients and appliances and gadgets, making different shapes. But it's totally not, Aliza Green writes clear simple instructions that would make the most dough-frightened person feel enabled to make luscious pasta. Between her clear instructions and tips, and Steve Legato's amazingly clear instructional photos, this is a book to really give a person confidence and a can-do attitude.

There are some pastas that simply call for special gadgets to make them, it's the nature of the pasta, but if you don't want to spend a penny on new fun equipment there are still plenty of pasta recipes you can easily make. The author gives several techniques on how to make pasta. She gives three ways of mixing (hand, stand mixer, food processor) and different ways to roll out the pasta- rolling pin, sheeter (hand cranked pasta machine) and the extruders.

I have recently gotten into making homemade pasta and was looking for a book to provide me with a variety of recipes, techniques and education on various types of pasta and this slim volume totally delivered on that request. It is also filled with gorgeous color photos on evey page illustrating step-by-step instructions for producing perfect pasta every time. This is not a source book for sauce recipes - this focuses solely on making the pasta itself. I like its focus on simple, inexpensive hand tools rather than expensive gadgetry, and its in-depth info on various aspects of the simple ingredients used to create great pasta at home. I highly recommend this book.

I have recently acquired a pasta machine. I was just wanting to make simple pasta and looking for recipes. This book is maybe more for someone looking to make really, really fancy pasta or maybe sell pasta. it had a purist sort of bent to it. It went into wooden dies and hand shaping pasta, and it did have some recipes just for the pasta itself. It has lots of pictures.
One thing that raised my eyebrow a bit was the discussion on eggs. The author goes into a detailed discussion of eggs but I was left feeling like maybe she really didn't know much about them in spite of the fact she wrote a lot about them. For instance, we have free range chickens, and the best eggs are the ones right out from under the chicken, but the author says eggs aren't good for 2 days after they are laid. I suppose my family would just disagree. Also, she leaves out a very important tip about fresh eggs, that the easiest way to tell if one is bad is just to float it in water. Good eggs don't ever float. The best sink quick.
This book would be great for you if you are looking for sources to buy wooden or high end pasta shapers and plates.
If, however, you're an every day cook that has a pasta maker and could care less if your plates are bronze vrs plastic, there might be better beginner books out there. I'm going to try to find another one that's more appropriate for a beginner like me.

This book is wonderful; I was a complete pasta-making novice when I received it as a gift and I managed to succeed in making great pastas right away by following the clear, concise instructions in this book. The large, colorful pictures aren't merely pretty to look at; they offer a crucial benchmark against which to judge the success of your pasta-making endeavors. I particularly liked seeing how my own Ukrainian cherry dumplings looked like the ones in the book's pictures. It gave me a gratifying sense that I'd gotten it right.

Another nice touch is that the book doesn't limit itself to Italian pastas, but explores many noodle-making traditions from around the world, and you'll find global favorites among its pages such as Japanese udon noodles, Chinese pot-stickers, Turkish manti, and Polish pierogis.

While this book will provide hours of delicious amusement, I do regret that it contains a lot of recipes requiring specialized equipment that cannot be used for anything else. Unless you're willing to shell out about $40 for a cavatelli machine or $60 for a corzetti stamp, some of the recipes in this book will be off limits to you. I would also have appreciated a little more guidance on obtaining some of the less common ingredients. Recommendations on how to obtain good chestnut flour for the vast majority of readers who have never even seen it before would be nice, for example.

All the same, I would recommend this book with great enthusiasm to anyone considering taking up pasta-making as a hobby. I would love to see the author turn this into a series, with another book or two containing more recipes.
