All the pasta meals I've ever made, I bought the box of pasta at the store. But now I want to make the pasta from scratch, and I wanted a book that shows how to do this.
This book is about 9 by 11 1/2, it has large color pictures, pictures of all the different types of pasta, with information about them, it shows all that one needs to begin making pasta. It has step by step pictured instructions on cooking and serving different types of pasta. It has step by step pictured instructions on making pasta from scratch. It has step by step pictured instructions on making pasta using a pasta machine, which is what I wanted, because I just bought a pasta machine.
It also has some recipes that sound pretty good, but I haven't tried any yet. It has sauce recipes, like fresh tomato sauce, and alfredo, there is info on herbs and spices and cheeses and so on.
All in all, I think its a very good book for someone like me who is starting from the beginning, the pictured instructions are great.
If someone already knows the basics of making pasta, then they may not be so thrilled with it, but with this book and Alton Brown's Good Eats episode of "Use Your Noodle", I think I'm already to begin making pasta.
If you are looking for a book on making homemade pasta I recommend "Making Artisan Pasta: How to Make a World of Handmade Noodles, Stuffed Pasta, Dumplings, and More", by Aliza Green.
In summary, I would recommend this book to an inexperienced cook as a good place to start.
