Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
BEWARE: this cookbook is written at an almost professional level. This means that this book will simply tell you to "combine ingredients and make into dough" without informing you how to do it or in what order. The book assumes you already know. Also since these are restaurant recipes, they are written like restaurant recipes. So if you are looking for a cookbook to teach you the basics of Italian cuisine, this is not the book for you.
Also, many of the ingredients are either totally obscure (esoteric liqueurs) or impossible to even buy (horse cheeks). That being said if you can even pull off half of most of these recipes you will amaze your friends and family. Just don't be upset when you realize you can't even try to make the other half.
Waste of money.
