3.0 out of 5 stars a lot of fluff Jan. 14 2013
By Patagaway TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
most of the info in this book is of little value to anyone who already knows a bit about cooking. There is some of the basic pasta making info that I had hoped was there when I bought it but not much and what was there was sketchy at best I was disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Feb. 20 2010
By Jerry Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is just the book I wanted. Being as there were no reveiws, I wasn't sure, but decided to take a chance and order.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book to Start With Sept. 18 2012
By KatieG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a previous reviewer wrote, this is a good book for beginners. It covers the basic types and shapes of pasta, equipment needed for preparation, and a small section (12 pages out of 124) on making homemade pasta. About half of the book is devoted to recipes for cooking and serving pasta and there is one page on pairing pastas with wines. The book did include a number of pasta types and flavors not usually found in the average US book on pasta but that may have been because it is published by a London firm.
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.
