Product Description

Review

"David Rocco is surely Canada's answer to Britain's Nigel Slater, a cook who makes simplicity an art form. David Rocco's Dolce Vita is a celebration [of] family, friends, good wine and good food. Buon appetito!" -- THE GLOBE AND MAIL --THE GLOBE AND MAIL

About the Author

DAVID ROCCO says, “I’m not a chef, I’m Italian!” He learned to cook at his mother’s side and is the epitome of an Italian food lover: adventurous, opinionated and fantastic to be around at dinnertime. Formerly a model, Rocco spends his time developing new concepts for his company, Rockhead Entertainment, with his wife and business partner, Nina. They have three children and split their time between Toronto and Italy. For more information, visit davidrocco.com, follow him on Twitter @davidroccosvita or become a fan on Facebook.

This is the first cookbook that I read from cover to cover like a book. Rocco's inspiring stories are accompanied by vivid photography. Most of the recipes are incredibly simple and therefore easy to build upon.

I love his show, so I bought his book. The cookbook is great it's like a storybook. The recipes are easy. Buy the CD so when you are cooking his recipes you can listen to the music. One of the best cookbooks I have purchased in a long time. I have over 50 cookbooks and he is in my top 5.

My decision to buy David Rocco's cookbook was inspired by watching his program on The Cooking Channel. The natural ease in which he shows his culinary expertise is truly authentic and classic Italian. His techniques are made simple enough that anyone who has had a desire to cook Italian food will be captured by David's style and flair for the cuisine that is enjoyed all over the world.

His way of incorporating the Italian lifestyle while in his kitchen in Florence, Italy only adds to the authenticity of his recipes many of which I recognized from my Grandmother's own kitchen. His flair for the "sweet life" of Italy comes through in this cookbook and anyone who has never cooked will be tempted to follow his talent to create these culinary delights.

I would highly recommend David's cookbook for anyone who has been to Italy or is wanting to visit this land of gastronomic heaven and come back with the desire to create many of the same dishes.

This book is wonderful for anyone interested in Italian cooking (or eating). It is high quality, gorgeous and beautifully put together. Great to keep in the kitchen or as a coffee table book even. The recipes are all simple, delicious, and accompanied by beautiful photos and stories of Italy. It really gets you passionate about the aromas and flavors of traditional Italian cuisine. I gave this to my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he has made every single dish! There is a good mix of appetizers, entrees, mains, desserts and drinks. Highly recommended.

If you like Italian cooking you will love this cook book. The recipes are not mangia cake and are extremely simple. We initially borrowed this book from the library and loved it so much that we needed to buy it. We have made some recipes multiple times because they were really that delicious. Try it! Amazon had the best price. I bought 2 so I could give 1 as a gift instead of bringing a bottle of wine. It made me save on the shipping.

An interesting approach on how to write a cook book. It not only has interesting, easy to prepare recipes, but it also gives the reader a novel way of looking at how the italian culture and food are so interwined. It gives the reader a behind the scenes look as to how and when these recipes started. If you're like me and loves to cook but hates all of those recipes with 101 items and hours of preparation then this book is for you.

I LOVE this book. I found it at my friends house and she is a great cook. After only browsing through for a few minutes I ordered it right away. I love that David has a story about each recipe and why you would make it and maybe pair it with. Great for anyone who wants to impress but with as much ease and simple ingredients as possible!
5 stars!!!!!

I love this cookbook. David Rocco has a flare for cooking. There are some really nice simple recipes using staple ingredients. Many recipes brought me back to my childhood, as they were very similier to the way my mother cooked as I was growing up. Yummy! Loved all the scenic pictures of Italy as well. I would recommend this cookbook.
