5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy this book, 6. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is an incredible book. I have read it from cover to cover, and even lugged it on vacation to read (yes, I am a bit obsessive). Everything that I have tried so far has been wonderful. Marcella's recipes are very approachable, and, best of all, they work! I am not Italian, nor have I ever been to Italy, so I can not speak to it's authenticity as Italian cuisine, but I can speak to the fact that this is wonderful food. She does insist on high quality ingredients, with which I am in total agreement, but I wish that she had included name brand names and resources in this updated edition. I have yet to be able to find anchovies in salt--even on the internet! The tomato and butter sauce is now my favorite pasta sauce, the veal marsala is delicious, and the cream and butter sauce is also wonderful. She goes into incredible detail about making pasta, as well as pairing fresh and factory products with the appropriate sauce. I would highly recommend reading the first part of the book before diving into the recipes, because she discusses several cooking techniques, as well as how to determine quality in your ingredients. If you love simple, wonderful food, you will not be disappointed with Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get this Book!, 30. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I have several dozen Italian cookbooks; I am not Italian, so everything I know about this fantastic cuisine has to be learned; I don't have a Nonna (grandmother) to teach me time-tested recipes. If you want to cook Italian and go beyond tomato sauces, this book is the place to start. Try the minestrone, especially the variation with fresh basil and arborio rice, the soup from Piedmont with borlotti beans and red cabbage, I could go on and on. The recipe for osso bucco turned out perfectly the first time; the chicken with garlic and rosemary is simple and classic. Once you really get into Italian food, you'll want to purchase books on the food of the various regions of Italy, but this is where you start!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delicious, Delicious, Delicious, 1. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is it: The single indispensable cookbook -- not just for Italian food, but for good food. Marcella's (sometimes acerbic) commentary on ingredients and recipes is wonderful, but the reason to buy this book is for the dishes. Almost everything I've made from this book has been an absolute treat, from the succulent mushroom and ham pasta sauce to the delectable stuffed tomatoes. And with the size of this compendium, you'll never run out of new tastes to try.
My one quibble? The desserts don't seem to measure up to the rest of the dishes. The two I've tried -- lemon almond cookies and the farm wive's pear tart -- were disappointing. The cookies tasted great, but had the texture of cardboard, while the "tart" was more like a clafouti; although I baked it far longer than the recipe called for, it remained doughy and wet. With all that ripe pear in the batter, though, it certainly tasted acceptable!
With two disappointments out of the 30-or-so fabulous recipes I've tried, this is still single finest book I've ever cooked from. (and much better than her recent huge success Marcella Cucina). Oh, the soups! Oh, the pastas! Oh, the vegetables! Oh, Marcella!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Where's the mouth-watering photos!, 29. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is well written and entertaining. The recipes are easy to follow and tasty. But, what I found to be most useful are the tips and tricks to Italian cooking. It clearly describes how to use olive oil, basil, and other herbs and spices. It tells you the origin and uses of Italian ingredients, as well as how and when to select them. The skills you will learn from this book will go a long way! The only thing this book lacks is photos. If you are like me and thouroghly enjoy seeing what your creation should end up looking like, then compliment this book with another. My best X-mas gift was "The Complete Italian Cookbook" by Carlo Bernasconi and Christian Teubner ISBN:1-898250-85-5. This is a 1999 book and not yet available through Amazon. Plan on spending a bundle, but it's dynamite! And for the photo lovers like me, it has 440 pages of recipes with at least one photo per recipe. Many photos are taken to show the step-by-step process. ALL photos in this book are HIGH quality color. You will find more photos in this book than your local-corner photo lab!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Now That's Italian, 17. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I divide my life into two periods: Life Before Marcella Hazan and Life After Marcella Hazan. Life is better now.
In my pre-Marcella life, I sought flavor in more and more ingredients--more spices, more herbs, more cheese varieties. My recipes were longer than the space shuttle's pre-flight checklist.
Marcella taught me the truth about flavor: it usually springs from a few, carefully selected ingredients, lovingly prepared.
Take Marcella's Tomato and Butter sauce for example: it is probably the best thing I've ever had in my mouth, yet there's almost nothing in it. Marcella reveals the key to this magic: imported Italian tomatoes (yes, it does make a difference) simmered slowly (uncovered) with the butter and onion.
Similarly, the pork braised in milk is full of mouth-watering flavor. The ingredients: pork and milk. And the chicken with two lemons? You guessed it; the ingredients are two lemons and a chicken.
These foods will make you happy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If I had to pick just one cookbook, this would be it., 2. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is an extraordinary cookbook. It has recipes to tempt every palate. If I had to pick just one cookbook to own, this would be the one.
The recipes in this book are clear and easy to follow, and in addition, Ms. Hazan tells us about ingredients, which kind of eggplant is best, what kind of pasta would be tasty, etc. She also has sections on technique, such as how to make pasta. These recipes are the kind you can make and make again and not get sick of them. There are many simple yet extremely tasty dishes, such as my favorite, smothered onion pasta sauce.
Truly, this is a great cookbook that everyone should have. I can give it no greater recommendation, except to say that I shall be living abroad for half a year and only have room for a few books, and this is one of the few I'm taking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best cookbook ever!, 3. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I have well over 1,000 cookbooks and this is the one that I use the most. The recipes are well written and easy to follow. The ingredients are easily accessible - in fact I usually have most things in my cupboards. Every recipe that I have tried in this book has worked prefectly. When looking at some of the recipes there seem to be so few ingredients that you wonder just how tasty the finished dish is going to be, however because of the techniques used you are NEVER disappointed. Just to give you some idea of how much I have cooked out of this book, I have cooked every fish or seafood recipe except for 3! My two favourite recipes in the book are the Mussel Soup and the Tomatoless Osso Bucco. If you are looking for a good Italian cookbook this is it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply the best., 13. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I got to know Marcella Hazan's book via a selection in Dutch, and even in this truncated version it became one of my favorites. Now I have the real article, I can only say that this book is an alltime classic. Its chapter on fundamentals is required reading for anyone who loves coocking. It ranges far beyond Italian cuisine. The 115-page chapter on pasta and pasta sauces is treatise that would in itself justify the purchase of this book. The recipes in this book start with good ingredients and many work miracles by just combining three or four ingredients in the right way. This is coocking - and writing about it- at its very best. words can not convey it. just try it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to Prep an Artichoke, 25. September 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I owned both of Marcella's previous books in paperback; a friend for whom I had prepared many of these meals (veal stew, baked semolina gnocchi, Roman style artichokes) rewarded me recently with this new volume. What I appreciate in the author are her unyielding standards ("hmmm, blindfolded, Marcella, I'd like you to tell us which is the Kraft 'grated topping' and which is the parmagianno reggiano..")and her clarity. Her step-by-step instruction on prepping artichokes is the best example of clear, instructional writing that I can name (and one that I've seen re-packaged and uncredited by other food writers).

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a cookbook!, 6. Januar 2000
Von 
David Wihowski (Milwaukee, WI USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I own many Italian cookbooks. This has to be my favorite. It is jammed with recipes that are easy to follow and provide a wonderful taste of Italy. Ms. Hazen knows both Italian food and what ingredients are available to Americans. She combines this knowledge to create a useful, yet very Italian cookbook. Ms. Hazen is also a practical cook and simplifies some of the cumbersome, traditional Italian techniques without sacrificing flavor! I have made at least 50 of the recipes, all successfully. There are at least 100 more I want to try! Her recipes take me to Italy via wonderful, authentic, Italian food.
