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.

Very colorful book with lots of pictures of the dishes.
I've tried some of the recipes ... loved the mushroom gnocchi.
It's a must for any one who likes Italian food.

I've never written a bad review but I wanted to balance the reviews that have been posted previously.
I don't think people that have cooked Italian food previously will be satisfied with this book. The pictures and layout of the book is wonderful, and some recipes are good. But most of the recipes are too simplistic in nature.

I am all about "la cucina povera" (the poor kitchen) as my parents are Italian immigrants. However some of the "recipes" that are given are not recipes at all. I say this because there are too many 2-3 ingredient recipes.

- Bistecca Fiorentina - Porterhouse steak, salt and pepper (page 287)
- Lemon-Infused Grilled Scamorza - Scamorza Cheese, 4 Lemon leaves or zest of 1 lemon (page 241)
- Beppe's Family's Pasta Pranzo - 9 cups flour, Lukewarm water (page 205)

Yes, Italian food is about simplicity due to a focus on fresh ingredients, but this book does not do it justice. The genius of Italian food is lost in this book. Italians make such incredible food with limited ingredients (not one or two!).

If you are interested in Italian food, better resources would be:
- The Silver Spoon (A little expensive but covers all regions of Italy)
- The Classic Italian Cookbook - Marcella Hazan (step by step instructions of classic recipes)

Hope that helps!!

Lots of good, simple recipes. Lots of yummy photos of David Rocco and of Italy. Many of the recipes are re-imaginations if those published in "La Dolce Vita", and can be found on his website. Nonetheless, no regrets in forking out the dough to add this to my collection.

This is a well layed out and beautifully illustrated book. David was gracious enough to sign my wife's copy when he come through Vancouver. Needless to say it is of her favorite cook books. David passion and enthusiasm come through on each pages. Well Done Paisano!

You gotta love these books. David and his team put together a cook book that's fun to read, a joy to look at and when you get down to actually doing the recipes, a pleasure to consume! We have "Rocco Nights" where 3 or 4 couples get together and each couple prepares a course from one of his books for our dinner party. 'Made in Italy' does not disappoint. Buon gusto!

Easy to follow and great photos to go with the recipes. Also David Rocco adds some history behind certain dishes. I love these recipes.
