Book Description

Sept. 14 2009

After four seasons as host of the hit TV series David Rocco’s Dolce Vita, David Rocco has become one of Canada’s most popular celebrity cooks. His show is aired on Food Network Canada, in Italian on TLN television and in French in Quebec via TVA. Chosen as one of Flare magazine’s 20 most stylish Canadians, David is celebrated beyond our borders; his show airs in 100 countries. As a proud Italian Canadian, David says his love of food, cooking and preparing meals for friends and family is part of his DNA: “I’m not a chef, I’m Italian!”

This gorgeous cookbook is full of everything that makes David’s TV show such a favourite: beautiful food photography and locales, and, of course, David’s sense of dolce vita, the sweet life. It’s all about taking a relaxed approach to the everyday, and the foundation of this lifestyle is simple, elegant food. David emphasizes the philosophy of quanto basta, or “just enough,” and encourages readers to cook to their own tastes. Here is great food, simply and lovingly created.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Jan. 11 2011
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!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Cookbook Jan. 15 2011
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impeccable Italian Cookbook Dec 2 2013

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must in every household Aug. 28 2013
Verified Purchase
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.
