"Grill Italian hooks the cook in the introduction. Who would not want to light the grill after reading the author's description of an alfresco dinner in Sicily ? The recipes are generally on the simple side, relying on the fresh ingredients and herbs for flavor rather than on heavy marinades and bastings. I love the frequent trick of alternating items on skewers with cubes of oil-soaked bread or that of sprinkling on bread crumbs to add texture ? Sausages, onions and oranges skewered together offer a delightful change of pace."
- Florence Fabricant, New York Times


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.  Ive 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.
