"For those who want a taste of excellent, yet different Italian cooking, The Puglian Cookbook is not to be missed." Midwest Book Review
"The region's flavorful cucina povera (peasant cuisine) is the subject of The Puglian Cookbook, a new book from Chicago-based Viktorija Todorovska, a passionate ambassador of the oft-overlooked area. Of Amazon.com's nearly 100,000 cookbooks, hers is one of only three focusing on Puglian cooking, and it catalogs the area's legume-, vegetable- and tomato-heavy dishes with great enthusiasm." Tasting Table
"The Puglian Cookbook: Bringing the Flavors of Puglia Home, paints a vivid picture of the region and its culinary traditions." WBEZ-FM, Chicago Public Media
"This is the kind of book you picture well-worn and loved, spattered with olive oil and maybe some tomato sauce. A cookbook that won't leave the kitchen." Marcia Crawford, Nutrition Minute
"...a 157-page collection of the essentials of Pugliese cooking, with recipes ranging from a tomato-topped flatbread known as puddica to baked squid stuffed with cheese, breadcrumbs, and capers to the potato, rice, and mussel casserole tiella." Mike Sula, Chicago Reader
"Arrivederci fast foods and trans fats! Viktorija Todorovska...[is] bringing the foreign experience to kitchens everywhere with her new cookbook, The Puglian Cookbook. The quick fix meals are simple, savory and, most importantly, healthy, with their basic pantry ingredients, fresh herbs, some cheese and olive oil." Today's Chicago Woman
"...turns humble spuds into something still simple but very flavorful, and adds some veggies to your diet, too." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

If you're interested in regional cooking and trying something new for your family, I think you'll enjoy this. Photographs are gorgeous (and realistic! Todorovska took them at her home without a stylist).
What I enjoy the most from this book is that the recipes are simple. They use simple, fresh ingredients that the author took the pains to research to make sure they can be purchased. But please do not confuse simple recipes for simple tastes, these dishes are anything but that! The flavors here are beyond compare for the time you will spend on them. We have not made everything in the book, but a good couple dozen now and they have all been fantastic.
I can now admit that there are few things in cooking more enjoyable than cooking an anchovy filet in olive oil and watching it melt like butter.
IF you are looking for something new to try and tired of the same old dishes you have been making then this is a great book. If you are an experienced cook then this is also a fantastic choice for the new flavors of the small part of Italy.
I would say that this is not your everyday spaghetti and tomato sauce cook book, but one of my favorite dishes from it is a spaghetti one !
We have her other cookbook, Sardegna and are traveling there next summer and will compare her book with our dinners.
You'll love her "Cucina Povera" so popular with the "farm to table" trend now. Good basic comfort food.
If you have never had the privilege of meeting the author, you can have the pleasure of her company in your kitchen by treating yourself to The Puglian Cookbook. While the recipes will indeed bring the flavors of Puglia to your home, you will have the added benefit of Viktorija's warm personality encouraging you every step of the way!
Would i recommend this book? absolutely, but honestly i would suggest not buying it in kindle form i would tell everyone to buy the actual book, or in my case buy some copies and give the book away as a gift to my friends.
give this book a try you may never know you might find a lot of goodies like i have..
