Product Description

Review

?David Rocco is surely Canada?s answer to Britain?s Nigel Slater, a cook who makes simplicity an art form. David Rocco?s Dolce Vita is a celebration [of] family, friends, good wine and good food. Buon appetito! ?

About the Author

DAVID ROCCO says, “I’m not a chef, I’m Italian!” His cooking learned at his mother’s side, David is the epitome of an Italian food lover: adventurous, opinionated and fantastic to be around at dinnertime. Dolce Vita is shown in over 150 countries around the globe and as of 2010 has been airing on the Cooking Channel to over 80 million homes in the U.S. Formerly a model, David Rocco spends his time developing new concepts for his company, Rockhead Entertainment, with his wife and business partner, Nina. They have two daughters and split their time between Toronto and Italy. Check out his website at www.davidrocco.com.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. Dionne on July 26 2010
This is the first cookbook that I read from cover to cover like a book. Rocco's inspiring stories are accompanied by vivid photography. Most of the recipes are incredibly simple and therefore easy to build upon.

I LOVE this book. I found it at my friends house and she is a great cook. After only browsing through for a few minutes I ordered it right away. I love that David has a story about each recipe and why you would make it and maybe pair it with. Great for anyone who wants to impress but with as much ease and simple ingredients as possible!
5 stars!!!!!

I love this cookbook. David Rocco has a flare for cooking. There are some really nice simple recipes using staple ingredients. Many recipes brought me back to my childhood, as they were very similier to the way my mother cooked as I was growing up. Yummy! Loved all the scenic pictures of Italy as well. I would recommend this cookbook.

Love it! Love it! Love it! David Rocco is a culinary genius! His recipes are delicious and easy to make, plus he uses easy everyday ingredients so you can make these recipes without going out to the supermarket for those hard-to-find things.

I had to buy a second copy of this book because my daughter took my first copy. We both use the book as our starting points whenever we cook Italian. Great recipes, great photos, and great tales told.

This book is wonderful for anyone interested in Italian cooking (or eating). It is high quality, gorgeous and beautifully put together. Great to keep in the kitchen or as a coffee table book even. The recipes are all simple, delicious, and accompanied by beautiful photos and stories of Italy. It really gets you passionate about the aromas and flavors of traditional Italian cuisine. I gave this to my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he has made every single dish! There is a good mix of appetizers, entrees, mains, desserts and drinks. Highly recommended.

If you like Italian cooking you will love this cook book. The recipes are not mangia cake and are extremely simple. We initially borrowed this book from the library and loved it so much that we needed to buy it. We have made some recipes multiple times because they were really that delicious. Try it! Amazon had the best price. I bought 2 so I could give 1 as a gift instead of bringing a bottle of wine. It made me save on the shipping.
