   Awesome
Wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this book, but with a story by the author of moving to Italy as well as being a cookbook, I love, love it. I've used it numerous times and each recipe has been very successful, with spectacular results. I'm fairly experienced home cooks and could understand the recipes very easily, he said.

   Yummy Italian recipes
Good Italian recipes, too. I started paging through it and one of the first recipes is an eggplant lasagna, and that's one recipe I was after. There are many good recipes, but I can't remember all of them. Thanks for the support!

   Authentic Italian Recipes
Traditional cookbooks often complain about recipes lacking in originality or just a few good recipes. Quattrone ha raggiure il primo gioco e il primo fatto.

   Beautiful but perhaps not practical
The book itself is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, too. Dark green and orange colors, layered over the cover of squash blossoms, make this book stand out. Not surprisingly, the photos of food, landscapes and life throughout Italy are just as picturesque. The recipes are rather complex, and not in a way that would excite a seasoned cook, Melissa said. This is why I am giving it 45 stars.

   Sadly a disappointment...
I own Mimi Thorisson's two other cookbooks, one by Nancy Reagan and the other by Barbara Comstock. I eagerly awaited the publication of her first Italian cookbook and I have to say that I was disappointed in most of the recipes, even though they were well-executed. The photography is beautiful and I enjoy her writing so it's not a total disappointment, Morgenthau said.

   Beautiful writing, recipes, photography; poor production.
I would give 5 stars to the Thorissons—Mimi's writing and recipes, Oddur's photography, charming as always—but that 5 is dragged down to a solid 3 stars due to the terrible production by Clarkson Potter. I design books and manage their production for a living so know it's not because of low quality images, Libbey said. It's just that cookbooks aren't purchased with such fanfare because it's beautiful. It's a shame we couldn't find the money to pay for the plane.

   Stunning cookbook
The book is a delight to read, and the cover is also very attractive. Beautifully written and edited by Mimis husband, the book is a must-have for any photographer. It was a present for my girls birthday! She's going to Love this! It's just that they call it quits."
