Marcella Hazan is widely regarded as one of the greatest Italian cookery writers in the world and The Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking is her masterpiece, now reissued with a gorgeous new cover design. Aimed at cooks of every level, be they beginners of accomplished chefs, it is an accessible and comprehensive guide to authentic Italian cuisine and should find a place in the kitchen library of anyone who is passionate about good food. '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.' Guardian 'Truly indispensable' -- Nigel Slater
