"I hope you'll use a recipe from this book to make pasta for dinner tonight!"
Accompanied by color photos that show the pastas in all their glory, the Italian-rooted recipes are completely doable, and will appeal to a wide range of cooks. Throughout, sidebars (like "Cooking with Spirits") offer useful information on techniques and ingredients; a glossary and basics section are also helpful. Though small in size, the book provides an inclusive store of superior recipes and instruction. --Arthur Boehm
