When first receiving this book I was more than pleased to find that it was much more than simply a great cookbook by one of the worlds' best chefs. This book gives an education from one of the best teachers going. Just by reading the tips and information under the titles, it is possible to not only feel more confident in the kitchen but to understand and have a real relationship with the foods we cook and serve and how they can make our families come together.

        Comments about PBS Lidia's Commonsense Italian Cooking: 150 Delicious and Simple Recipes Everyone Can Master -Hardcover:

        This cookbook is beautiful and contains recipes I'll make for the rest of my life. I made the chick pea and spinach soup, and it's delicious! That soup reminds me of a soup I used to order as a child at "Mama Rosa's" Italian restaurant, and when I told my Mom about this she came over to try it (anything Mama Rosa made was to die for, and we both miss that soup--until now!). Also, it was easy to make.

        I can't wait to cook and eat my way through this book! I highly recommend it for every cook out there, from the beginner to the advanced.

                    Just as the title suggests, "Commonsense and easy". Also mouthwatering recipes while just reading. I LOVE Lidia. She makes everything so easy in the way that she clearly explains each step. Her approach to delicious meals is refreshing and non-intimidating. I love this book!
