This is a beautiful little cookbook with some great Italian recipes. I loved the colorful illustrations, and thought that the directions were helpful and easy to follow. I liked the part of the book called "The Italian Pantry," where ingredients used in Italian cooking were described, and the inclusion of wine pairings was also nice. I believe that this book would make a good addition to the cookbook collection of anyone who is interested in trying some Italian dishes.

I tried six of the recipes

Just looking at the full-colour photos of 'SAVEUR Easy Italian' made my mouth water. The book is well laid out with various interesting facts and information dotted throughout. There is a photo step-by-step guide for one recipe; I would like to have seen more of these as this one certainly helped me.

The book even gives wine suggestions for the meals, which I think is a great touch. The recipes aren't suitable for vegetarians (although the photos might tempt some to eat meat) or novice cooks, but

What a great little cookbook, with 30 recipes and full color photos of amazing Italian recipes. Saveur gives quick introduction to the food, cooking tips, wine pairings and serving suggestions. Some recipes have photo step by step guides. Some recipes may not be suitable for beginner cooks, but if you like Italian and enjoy cooking you may enjoy Saveur Easy Italian. A great kitchen addition for Foodies. Three and a half star

Many of Italy's most satisfying foods are also some of the world's simplest to prepare.
This is one of the first cooking books I'm reviewing. Saveur Easy Italian has lots of tradicional Italian recipes that everyone needs to know. I made several of them. I personally like lighter meals so the Sauteed Greens, the Venetian Spring Risotto and the Vegetable soup were my favourite. Also, every cook should know hot to prepare Spaghetti with meatballs and Pasta with tomatoes.
Another thing I loved about

SAVEUR Easy Italian is a short but pretty primer with 30 Italian dishes. The pictures are beautiful, and the instructions come with a quick introduction to the food. There are some recipes that are familiar, and some that are totally new; some come from established chefs and others come from restaurants in Italy, carrying that tinge of authenticity. I look forward to trying some of these recipes.

I received a copy of this via Netgalley.

an emphasis on easy, not something Italian dishes are always known for, which makes this a great cookbook for those that love Italian fare but do not have the time or the skills of a master chef to achieve...some ingredients may be unfamiliar to tha average cook, and/or difficult to find in your local grocery, but overall, i found this a very accessible and approachable cookbook...

I reviewed this for Netgalley. There were only a small number of recipes in this book I would make. I thought it was a bit heavy on the fish recipes, which I am not a huge fish eater, versus meat, so it probably wouldn't be a book I would purchase. Plus, this book only has about 30 recipes in it so it is a much smaller cookbook.

Quick and easy Italian dishes from eggplant parmesan to minestrone soup. This book by the editors of Saveur covers many of the Italian favorites including a rich Bolognese sauce and zabaglione. It's all basic, simple and absolutely delicious.
