Fun, flashy and delicious!
on August 14, 2011
Self-dubbed punk-Italian fusion, Nadia G. offers a gorgeously presented collection of delicious every day dishes, served with her trademark attitude and trashy-glamorous style. The recipes are straight-forward and yummy, but bear in mind that you will find a lot of rich pasta and comfort food meals. There is one so-called diet chapter, but mostly, you'll find self-indulgent and tasty treats. This is not vegetarian friendly! But she has a wonderful section of helpful advice for basic cooking tricks (getting organic meat, investing in high quality olive oil, knowing how to buy fish, etc.), and a great checklist of stuff you should always have in stock in your pantry. I've always loved to cook Italian-inspired food, so I found my tastes were indulged in this collection of classic culinary ideas with a twist.
If you like her Internet show and dig her devil-may-care attitude, you'll love the colorful book, as it it full of glossy pictures of Nadia in various sexy outfits, showing off her awesome food. I only wished it had a hardcover, as it always makes it easier to prop open on the counter as you cook.
