Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Americans trolling for something novel in Italian cookery need look no further than Lawson’s latest book, which displays with vivid photographs her unique take on fast, simple dishes. Uncompromising purists may carp that these recipes are not authentic regional Italian; Lawson aims to modernize classic Italian cookery principles to better suit contemporary kitchens. Pastas range from a beautifully baroque yet quickly prepared lasagna to a simple toss of pasta, gorgonzola cheese, fresh spinach leaves, and pistachios. Italian Americans conversant with giambotta will recognize a cousin in Lawson’s Italian Tray Bake, loaded with chicken, sausage, and potatoes. Lovely inspirations for vegetable side dishes include roasted brussels sprouts gently herbed and mock mashed potatoes made from semolina. To ensure family contentment, the author has made use of the palates of her own teenage children. A few recipes, such as a turkey breast stuffed with sausage and cranberries, make outstanding centerpieces at party buffet tables. --Mark Knoblauch



An Observer Best Book [2012]
A Sunday Times Best Book [2012]
“Easy style, friendly chatter, simple directions, short list of ingredients and delicious results.”
National Post
“Italy has clearly formed Ms. Lawson’s palate, but this book incorporates her British, American and working-parent cooking habits to produce a friendly mix of recipes…. Modern, accurate and useful.”
Julia Moskin, The New York Times 
“The cuisine of Italy puts the author in a playful mood and the results are delightful. This feels like her freshest book since How to Eat 13 years ago…. Every page sparkles with her infectious desire ‘to be Italian.’”
The Sunday Times (Best Book)
“Expect bold, attractive flavours and well-presented instructions.”
Daily Express
“Nigella is positively Sophia Lorenesque here, which fits rather nicely with the food—a kind of naturalised Notting Hill version of Italian dishes.”
—Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent
“Nigella deals with the question of authenticity in a characteristically intelligent, crisply argued and well-written way.”
The Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
