“This cookbook is freaking awesome. Silverton truly wants to share what she knows with her pupils. Usually, that knowledge is passed on to her restaurant chefs and cooks. But with The Mozza Cookbook, for a brief moment, it gets to be us.” —Jenn Garbee, LA Weekly
“ . . . filled with beautiful rustic food photography and all the staple recipes.” —Kat Odell, Eater Los Angeles
“I was struck by how fully and faithfully a chef's personality can translate from restaurant to page. [The book’s] lavish presentation of unusually lovely photographs seemed just right. Silverton takes full advantage of California's vivid produce. Her book, like her menus, casts the universe as a luxurious garden. . . . lyrical and nurturing.” —Frank Bruni, Food and Wine

One of the things that sets the book apart is the writing in the book itself. Written by James Beard award-winning writer Carolyn Carreno, the notes on top of the recipes bring a human touch to each dish. This is not simply a cookbook, but rather a superb book with recipes. Carreno goes to the soul of both the restaurants and Nancy Silverton herself. Even if I didn't cook a lot at home, I would by the book just for the story of Mozza.
I realize this is a very glowing review but I want to assure you I AM NOT RELATED to Silverton or Carreno or chefs Matt Molina and Chris Feldmeier
I just really liked the book and wanted to let people know. Morty Goldstein, Grape Street, Watts California
