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.

"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."
