Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon

Pasta: Every Way for Every Day shows what a versatile, as well as healthy, food pasta really is. Written by Eric Treuille, director of the Books for Cooks cooking school in Notting Hill, and Anna del Conte, author of 12 books on Italian cooking, it explains the various types of pasta, how to make them and how to cook them. The level of cooking is described for each recipe and there is plenty to choose from "quick cook", "no cook" and "slow cook" recipes.

Throughout, the authors give their own hints and tips, from the proper way to boil pasta (never fling it in a pan with some water and a pinch of salt) to freezing tomato puree (easy when you know how). There are suggestions for fast and simple sauces, pasta that children love and pasta to impress friends, as well as recipes to use when cooking for large numbers and dishes that can be cooked in advance.

The recipes are easy to follow with the methods of preparation in the same order as the list of ingredients. This is a book that is suitable for hopeless cooks as well as the clever ones. If you follow the recipes, it is unlikely you will go wrong. --Judith Spelman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Pasta Book June 18 2004
I love pasta and always like to use this book when I am creating something from scratch. I have found this book to be very helpful in teaching me about cooking pasta and all of the wonderful sauces that can go with it.
The first portion of the book is excellent because it explains how to choose pasta in terms of ingredients and size/shape for a good pairing to the selected sauce. It also goes into techniques like tossing and using the right amount of cooking time. The recipes were clearly written and accompanied by many full-color photographs of what the dishes looked like when done.
Overall I have had a lot of good results with the pesto, tomato, and meat recipes. My cream sauces have not turned out as well though which is why I gave this book a four instead of a five. Regardless, it IS excellent and I believe a sound investment if you are looking to add a solid pasta book to your cookbook collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dec 18 2003
By A Customer
I am an Italian-American and very picky about my Italian cookbooks. This one is excellent, we have made probably about 30 different recipes in it and only 2 have been clunkers. What I really love about it (besides all the gorgeous photos) is the alternative suggestions for sauces and pasta styles. I wish all my cookbooks looked like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Pasta Cookbook! July 18 2002
By A Customer
Do you like pasta? Then buy this book! I was looking for a book by Anna Del Conte and decided to try this one. Boy, am I glad I did. It's the best cookbook I own. The authors give basic instructions on such things as making "perfectly cooked pasta every time," and there is an endless number of easy, delicious recipes that also tell you which pasta to use and what can be done in advance. The "at a glance" format makes it so easy to quickly navigate through this book. And there's so much more! You will treasure this book.
