At last an Italian cookbook that has the heartbeat of Italy - Georgio Locatelli, like a surgeon, travels deep into the essential core of Italian food and cooking - revealing more and more its love of spareness, simplicity and the importance of perfect ingredients. I think this is a book that can be used by both chefs and cooks, and is especially for those of us who will travel miles to get the right kind of mozarella.

Though I generally steer clear of chef cookbooks, this one is a joy from start to finish, from the beautiful essays on ingredients to the recipes themselves. Rarely short, but always worth the extra effort.

In contrast, slightly 'cheffy' recipes with multiple steps, but worth it for the extremely delicious food they produce. Have used many times with great success.

Giorgio Locatelli a tome of a book to delve into and get lost for a while - with obvious input from Dan Lepard - another great writer and baker.
