This book is a must have basic if you like to cook Italian food. It has pretty much every sauce, every pasta, and every recipe that you'll ever need, plus insightful commentary on what you can do to improvise. This woman is the Queen of Italian Sauces.
My favourite of Marcella Hazan's cookbooks: quite apart from the wonderful recipes, the photographs of Venice, of the Rialto markets, of Victor Hazan dragging the shopping cart up the stairs to their flat, take one straight back to life in that magical city.
I just bought this cookbook and am getting going on trying a few recipes but everyone i talk to loves it. Great for beginning italian chefs.
I have all of Marcella's cookbooks. This is hands-down my favorite. Every recipe is a keeper and it is beautifully illustrated.

Nicely written. I didn't find myself inspired to try any of the recipes, though (probably my fault rather than hers).
