The book does cover areas that I wanted to explore with using different kinds of flours in pasta making. This book also covers different methods of making pasta by hand or machine. If your your looking for sauce recipes for pastas you will be disappointed. If your looking for something that is gluten free you will also be disappointed.

This book covered exactly what I was looking for and I was thoughly pleased.

An excellent book, worth owning. Makes me wish I had the pasta-making equipment so I could dive in and start making all the filled pastas, sheet pastas, and dumplings that are some of the most intriguing recipes in the book. The brilliant photography really sells each dish and style of noodle, taking you step-by-step through the whole process. Moving this to my Amazon wish list!

I recently took a three-series class on pasta making, and the culinary teacher recommended this book. We made pasta from the pasta mix recipe in this book, and it had a beautiful texture. We made the two-egg pasta dough, and made the spinach pasta recipe. It was absolutely delicious, and I loved the texture of the pasta. I had to own my own copy, but Amazon was sold out of the book version. Patience isn't my greatest virtue, so I downloaded the kindle version. Thankfully, the kindle version is p ...more

Now that I am retired, hopefully I will have more time to devote to cooking. I have been interested in making homemade pasta ever since I obtained an old hand pasta roller from my mom that used to belong to my grandma. In reading this book, the first thing I noticed is that one can spend an absurd amount of time and money making homemade pasta. Since the book was actually overdue to the library when I began reading it (it is very popular and has a waiting list), I wasn't able to give it the atte ...more

Very well put together with wonderful photography. All the instructions and recipes were well written and very inspired without being pretentious. I made several of the pastas, mostly the ones incorporating veggie juices, and they all came out perfect with the added bonus of the recipes translating well for pasta machine use. I'd judge that this book is best suited for someone who's already made their own pasta a few times as it can get frustrating trying a more intricate dish for a first time.

I read the book. Cover to cover. Twice.

I own a ridiculous number of cookbooks and it's a pretty special cookbook to get me to read it like a novel and inspire me into the kitchen immediately...or at least making an ingredients list immediately. Making Artisan Pasta is such a book. Aliza Green writes about pasta, about ingredients, how to make pasta, form pasta, and so many more ideas and tips on making fabulous pasta.

The photos are similarly inspirational from the step-by-step photos to the beau

This was an interesting little cookbook. The emphasis was definitely on artisan pasta- i.e., pasta as an art form- rather than practical/everyday types of things, but it definitely had a lot of creative ideas to get you thinking. I subtracted 1 star for the almost complete lack of suggestion for what to DO with these interesting pastas once you had it made, except in the very vaguest of terms: "This pasta might go well with seafood," and "Don't serve this pasta with a cream sauce." Still, defini ...more

Love this book! I will definitely be using my pasta maker more often!

This book is full of gorgeous pictures, fantastic recipes, and super helpful tips. It breaks down everything from different flours and eggs, to work surfaces, to hand preparation vs machine. Plus there are many different recipes for flavored pasta doughs as well as filled and shaped pastas.

So glad my best friend got me this for my birthday. This is an awesome one to own. Logical recipes. Gorgeous photography. I can't wait to start making these pastas. Any one know where one would purchase durum flour for cheap? Checked both my stores, nada.

This is the best pasta book I've found, in fact, the only one I think I need in my house. It has step by step illustrated instructions and fabulous recipes.

Every recipe I've tried so far has been 100% on point. Amazing book and I especially love the history included on pasta shapes and all the information on the ingredients. Highly recommend.
