What is Your Favorite Italian Cookbook?

Even in the Digital Age I still love cookbooks, I know there are plenty of online recipes but I still like to leaf through a book.

Perhaps you like Lidia's Italy in America, or if you are from the the other side of the Atlantic you'd prefer Jamie's Italy

Getting beyond TV cooking celebrities there are plenty to choose from, for example I love Culinaria Italy

What makes a good Italian Cookbook?

There are a few criteria I look for Italian cook books.

  • Must recognize that Italy's cuisine is strongly regional
  • Methods must not be to complicated or fiddly
  • Ingredients, or close substitutes, should be readily available
  • Recipes should be put into a regional context
  • Wine recommendations
  • Pictures are nice but not essential
