Scrumptious! Oct 4, 2005
I don't like to cook! I don't even like to grocery shop! I do like to eat and love to eat well. And I love good, rich Italian food. And because my husband really loves good Italian food, I read and actually made several of the dishes from Carmela Tursi Hobbin's cookbook, Carmela's Cucina. We were not disappointed.
The dishes were scrumptious and relatively easy to make and didn't take hours and hours. I also found that many of the ingredients were already in my kitchen, and that's a plus. It was also interesting and so enjoyable to read the personal stories that were included.
Some of my favorite recipes are:
Crab Crostini; page 19 (I could make this appetizer be a meal.) Potato Dumplings Daniela Ruggeri with a sauce; page 71 (I love potatoes!) Vegetable Lasagna; page 74 (It's easy!) Stuffed Zucchini; page 105
I could continue, but that would spoil the fun for all the cooks who are going to love this cookbook.
Armchair Interviews says: If you love good Italian food, Carmela's Cucina is one book you'll really enjoy.
