    • Well, this is a book you cannot read. It's rather a religion you have to practice, a science you have study, an art you have to master.



    • This is my new all time favorite cook/food stories book.Locatelli combines amazing stories, food histories, wonderful techniques and recipes and gorgeous photographs.My risotto is now excellent. My pasta dishes have reached new heights. To cook these dishes really well it helps to have the history and basic theory behind them and Giorgio gives the real goodsAZING!!!


    • This is one of the most underrated Italian cookbooks and I've looked through quite a few. I made the ragu, risotto alla lodigiana and spaghetti al crudo; all turned out really well. Locatelli is from northern Italy and the recipes are mostly from this region, so don't expect recipes like pizza. The book is quite old so the photos look outdated but it was the recipes and his passion in the stories that convinced me to pick it up. It has definitely helped me to cook and understand Italian food.


    • I know it's a bit weird to read cookbooks -- trust me, it's part of research for a book -- but the fact of putting these cookbook recipes in your head changes you. I've read a few others, but I judge a cookbook by how deep your hunger/craving is to cook something after you've finished reading a few of the recipes or the cookbook author's thoughts on food etc. By this standard, Giorgio Locatelli's hefty 615 page cookbook is a resounding success. I had the unconsumable craving to make my own beef- [...]


    • Locatelli's tome is part cookbook, part essay, part autobiography. It is heavy and wordy with not nearly enough pictures, but also personal, charming, and passionate. I think my favorite parts to read are the essays about different ingredients or famous Italian dishes. (e.g. pages just about salt or eggplant or risotto; where they come from, history, his tips and preferred methods for using them) They are fun and informative.His personal story takes up probably the smallest space in the book, bu [...]


    • Fantastic book of Italian recipes. I honestly cannot get enough from his recipes, so plan to get the next book of his "Made in Sicily" at some point. The books are not cheap but every recipe is outstanding (and not super complicated, either). There are a bunch of gorgeous photographs throughout the book (pretty much a MUST for me) and some stories in between (of his grandparents and such). The section on breads is particular great. A lot of step-by-step instructions and lots of variations to the [...]


    • Yes. The presentation of Italian food and culture in this book is just very, very correct and true. This is obviously a very personal work for Locatelli as he pours his heart into the pages, sharing stories of his childhood and obvious love of quality food and presentation. Above all, it is the sharing of good food that makes it truly great. This is one of those cookbooks that you can peruse for hours. The pictures are simple, beautiful, and will make you hungry. The section on risotto even has [...]


    • Locatelli's passion- and Italianess - really comes through in this book. Great stories, and thorough explanations of Italian cooking techniques and history, makes this a really great one for the recipe book shelf. Disappointingly, the editing is somewhat lacking (especially since this book was 5 years in the making) and you need to keep your wits about you when following a recipe as typos abound. He also tends to be a little over zealous with his quantities of butter, but that all just a matter [...]


    • Having read this book cover to cover, yum food and great stories.I have been a fan of Giorgio for years, then going to his restaurant in London was a highlight of that trip.Highlight of the book - risotto, simple dish requiring seventy-four pages. This cookbook is kept beside the bed, when not in the kitchen.


    • love the stories, the eating culture in Italy.em! the recipe of course.! cook like the Italian mama!the journey to find the ingredientsion to make the food for familyenjoy to see the face of satisfaction when they eat my food


    • I didn't read this book cover to cover, but what I did read I absolutely loved. Great photos on top of step-by-step directions make it a wonderful cookbook. Interesting stories on top of historical background information make it a fascinating read.


    • I learned to make really good lasagna through this book. Not just because it has a good recipe on it, but because locatelli really explaines the spirit of the dish.






    • Part cookbook, part food stories, part Italian culture hit right on the head, part chef's memoir, this is a great reminder that, at our best, cooks are what we put on the plate.
