"For those who want to craft the kind of delizioso Italian delights one finds at the chef’s flagship New York restaurant, Felidia, [Lidia] Bastianich serves up more than 100 signature recipes she’s spent 38 years perfecting: Istrian-inflected dishes both sophisticated and homespun." —O, The Oprah Magazine 
 
"No one gets to the heart of Italian food like Lidia Bastianich." —Debbie Macomber,#1 New York Times best-selling author 

"One of America’s great Italian cooks." —Los Angeles Times

"Bastianich’s 16th cookbook and arguably one of her most user-friendly, streamlined to be 'as straightforward to cook as possible' and using a minimal number of pots and pans. . . . You’ll find a wide assortment of primi pasta and risotto cishes, which are the cornerstone of Italian cooking and perfectly suited for one-pot cooking: chicken eggplant parmesan, gemelli with pesto and tomato, chicken cacciatore and zucchini bread lasagna, to name a few. . . . Ever the teacher, Bastianich sprinkles tips and tricks throughout, and also offers substitution and serving suggestions." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
