4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to a Cookbook library Dec 28 2011
By PL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This cookbook from CIA is a nice addition for someone who already has some Italian cookbooks for the popular Italian recipes. It provides delicious recipes that may be somewhat different than you're used to which is nice if you're in a cooking rut and looking for something different to spark up your next dinner. One author is from northern Italy and the other from the south which provides a well-rounded variety of recipes. The commentary on different regions, customs, and differences with "American style Italian" is also a nice addition. My wife and I enjoy cooking for a hobby and do not consider ourselves expert cooks as the reviewer with over 3,000 cookbooks, but enjoy having this one added to our much smaller, but well-used collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment...... Feb. 11 2012
By Dee Manding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Surprisingly disappointing offering from the Culinary Institute, from whom I'd expect better. Another book like so many out there in a crowded field, full of uninteresting recipes, that most families I know wouldn't really be all that eager to see mom making for dinner. To its credit, it does have some very interesting narrative on the differences between traditional Italian cooking and its Italian-American offspring, and how that American variant appears to Italians. Food photography is a cut above, as is usual with CIA books. Aside from that, not much in my opinion to make this much of a valued reference for most people, and certainly not worth the rather high price.
