Recommends it for: Anyone cooking in the Italian style
If ONLY I’d consulted this book before a) making pasta dough for the first time, and b) unsuccessfully attempting to make ravioli for the first time!

This is the one book on Italian cookery that every home cook needs a copy of. All others are optional extra. Bugialli is precise, helpfully descriptive, and clear in his recipes. There is even a helpful table of conversions from US cup measures back to metric measures.

I own a 2005 hardcover edition. Hand-draw illustrations, no shiny, glossy food photography, lots of text, lots of additional explanations, old fashioned and absolutely lovely. I adore this book. It has sauce stains in it and I keep writing in it when I change something, I write the page numbers of my favrouite recipes on the first page, it looks a mess, great book!
If you want a really good cookbook for Italian food, get this.
