My favorite [of the cookbooks reviewed] is Cucina Rapida, a delicious discovery for lovers of Italian food.  Most of the recipes can be done in 30 minutes or less, and the flavors are forthright.  I’ve cooked a lot from this book since it came out in early summer and have yet to be disappointed.  The recipe for Linguine with Shrimp, Spinach, and Lemon is bright-tasting, a memorable supper that I will make again for my family or for casual entertaining.
- Felicia Gressette, Akron Beacon Journal


Cucina Paradiso is a cookbook, not some dry, dull gastronomic text.  The recipes are seductively written, and powerfully appealing.  And Wright’s refreshing lack of arrogance...is a rarity among food writers today.
