MEDIA REVIEWS
If this were the only cookbook you owned, neither you nor those you cooked for would ever get bored. -- Nigella Lawson
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 *
Brilliant. -- Heston Blumenthal
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. -- The Guardian
Truly indispensable. -- Nigel Slater
When I don't know what to do in life, I go to Marcella and she sorts me out -- Ruth Rogers, chef and owner of The River Cafe, London
