Whether telling you how to prepare artichoke hearts in olive oil or how to make pasta from scratch, they give clear easy to follow instructions combined with lively anecdotes about traditional Italian eating and cooking.

Over two hundred authentic favorite recipes (including most requested by fans) that show how to create authentic yet refreshingly simple everyday Italian meals for both the home cook and professional chef.
