I know I've said several times I'm not going to buy anymore cookbooks. I couldn't help myself.
I heard great things about this book. While waiting for a friend, I started to skim though it, then bought it.
It's excellent. Some of the recipes are beyond my culinary level but I found it accessible.
Giorgio Locatelli grew up in a small town near Milan and has been cooking since he was five. He owns a very successful restaurant in London. Most of the recipes have a Northern Italy influence.
This is more than just a book of recipes. Locatelli is an excellent writer. He gives great insight into the history of various foods/recipes. The book is well illustrated and I loved reading about his family.
It took me a while to read this book. I wanted to savor every single page. If you love Italian cooking, especially Northern Italian cuisine, I recommend this book.
