Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking

What Julia Child did for French cooking, Marcella Hazan did for Italian. Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking ($30) combines her previous two publications in one large volume. Important Italian ingredients are explained in great detail, and authentic dishes like fresh pastas and risottos are made accessible for the home cook. For anybody who loves cooking with fresh ingredients and real Italian cuisine, this book is a must have.
