Best-selling author and Italian celebrity chef Benedetta Parodi brings together her best recipes for the first time in English. With over two million books sold, Benedetta Parodi is a culinary sensation in Italy. The celebrity chef has now compiled her favorite recipes and tips into one book, bringing to the table a warm, unpretentious charm that shines through. Easy to follow, her recipes are new twists on the traditional, injecting classic Italian fare with freshness and spontaneity. The book is familial and accessible: there is a section for cooking when you simply have no time; another for when you are looking to treat yourself; another for classic Italian food; and one for when you want to impress. The dishes are flavorful while remaining simple: pumpkin risotto, pizza with gorgonzola and figs, chicken and pepper spiedini (skewers), and torta with caramelized oranges. There are hosting tips as well, such as how to choose the right table decorations and how to match the table to what is on the menu.

I expected more. There were some interesting recipes, but just not as much as I was expecting, or would like to see in a cookbook of this size. I've seen much better photographs in other books that gave a much more enticing (sp) point of view.
