Surprisingly good Italian food


This is so much better than Jamie's first Italian cookbook. From antipasti to pasta, rice and desserts this transports you to sundrenched Italy. Even his method for preserving tomatoes is exactly the same as the method passed down through generations of my family. I give it a 10 out of 10 and encourage you to put this book on your bookshelf as a great Italian cooking reference.

This is amazing, so full of not only great recipes but stories of the Italian culture and how incredibly diverse it is region to region and Jamie celebrates that in this book



Not a fan of Jamie Oliver, but this book is brilliant

Amazing. Would definitely recommend to everyone who enjoys t


Foodie & Cookbook Collector



A wonderful blend of authentic Italian recipes & heritage ..


I have already tested several recipes in the book. Jamie's instructions are easy to follow, and the recipes are attractive regional choices. The linked social commentary, accompanied by great 'Nonna' pictures, add to the appeal of this book,



Jamie has lack of detail in describing the fish he eats


Things aren't great when you read it





Well presented cooking book




4.4 7


An irresistible collection of classic Italian recipes, trusty old favourites like carbonara and ragu sitting alongside more inventive dishes including baked tiella rice with mussels or turbot al forno.
