Patrimonio dell'umanit� dei salutisti, nel senso di "alla salute" cuoco...che bella parola dedica implicita al grande romagnolo di Forlimpopoli che ci ricorda - in tempi in cui troppo spesso la cucina � piacere per gli occhi, per l'autostima, per lo status symbol per i giornali, per tutto quanto non serve a nulla... ...che uno dei modi di conoscere il mondo � acquistarlo o raccoglierlo, lavarlo, mondarlo, tritarlo, impastarlo, stenderlo, affettarlo, brasarlo, stufarlo, bollirlo, friggerlo, impan ...more

This is not a sit down and read start to finish type book. So I read out of it every morning to inspire and give colour to my day - I presume like some people read the Bible.
This book is not your average book filled with recipes. This book is about life, it explains every aspect of living in illustrious terms. It is mesmerizing!
"Soup is only as good as the Sofrito" this is not only true of soup but also of life. Select every ingredient with attention, prepare it with your soul, add some good mu

In 1982 I bought a copy of Pellegrino Artusi’s La Sceinza in Cucina e l’Arte di Mangiar Bene, “The Science of Cookery and the Art of Eating Well,” from a used-book seller who also carried a few new books on the side. My copy was new. I didn’t want a new copy, but when I asked him if he had any used ones, he shook his head and replied that mothers passed their copies on to their daughters. He’d sold only three used copies of Artusi, as the book is called, i

This is a classic of Italian cooking, indeed it has been called "The Bible of Italian cooking". Written over a century ago, it contains timeless recipes that are a staple for each aspiring or accomplished Italian chef. The book reads well, it is written with wit and humour (e.g. why is a plum-cake called plum-cake when it does not have any plums?)and makes for a pleasant read even if you are put off by the abundant use of innards and offal in the recipes.

Un libro che non ha bisogno di presentazioni: basta il cognome dell'autore. Grande classico della cucina italiana, una vera miniera di ricette (non per tutti i giorni, il modo di cucinare è molto cambiato nel tempo), ma anche una lettura godibile e a tratti divertente.

I am not sure if this is the edition that I have but I love Artusi - the recipes take some work but the flavors and commentary are unsurpassed. (the date is the first read, I read the book constantly!)

Was recommended to me by a cook in Siena as the Italian cookbook. Amusing commentary with general recipes - more process than technical (yes!) - written in the late 1800s. I will try making the Nocino (walnut liquer) first.

It's like "the Joy of Cooking" for Italy. I've come to this book often enough as a good reference point for many traditional Italian dishes. It's a great and very useful addition to a culinary library.

Everything you need to know about Italian cooking from a scholarly perspective. Great reading to see how it was done in the old-days.

My goto for Italian. Some books tell you how to cook. Here I understand how to cook.

Un altro gradito regalo dopo l'atlante sui vini. E' ovviamente impossibile capire quale sia la mia passione.
