Nice addition to a Cookbook library,
This review is from: A Tavola!: Recipes and Reflections on Traditional Italian Home Cooking (Culinary Institute of America Dining) (Hardcover)
This cookbook from CIA is a nice addition for someone who already has some Italian cookbooks for the popular Italian recipes. It provides delicious recipes that may be somewhat different than you're used to which is nice if you're in a cooking rut and looking for something different to spark up your next dinner. One author is from northern Italy and the other from the south which provides a well-rounded variety of recipes. The commentary on different regions, customs, and differences with "American style Italian" is also a nice addition. My wife and I enjoy cooking for a hobby and do not consider ourselves expert cooks as the reviewer with over 3,000 cookbooks, but enjoy having this one added to our much smaller, but well-used collection.
