About the Author

Marcella Hazan (1924-2013) was born in the village of Cesenatico in Italy. She earned a doctorate in natural sciences and biology from the University of Ferrara. In 1956 she married Victor Hazan, an Italian-American who subsequently gained fame as a wine writer, and the couple moved to New York City a few months later. She was widely considered by chefs and fellow food writers to be one of the foremost authorities on Italian cuisine.

Industry Reviews

Truly indispensable. -- Nigel Slater There are dozens of Italian cookbooks on the market, but The Essentials Of Classic Italian Cooking is the only one you need to buy. No glossy photos; just 700 pages of wonderful recipes and instruction in basics such as bread-making. And all with the kind of detailed teaching left out of books that give more space to pictures than to text. A classic. * Guardian * Brilliant. -- Heston Blumenthal Has yet to be bettered . . . my copy is splattered with gnocchi, tomato sauce, gravy and oil, but I wouldn't replace it for the world. It does what it says on the tin, and more. -- Kate Colquhoun, The Best 50 Cookbooks * Independent * If this were the only cookbook you owned, neither you nor those you cooked for would ever get bored. -- Nigella Lawson
