SAVEUR: Easy Italian

The editors of SAVEUR magazine put together this e-book for iPad, iPhone, and iPod available through the Apple IBook store for $2.99. This is an interesting formatting decision and an astonishing price. The introduction claims that Italian food is inherently easy to make. This, too, is an astonishing claim for this girl from Texas. While my family enjoys pasta to excess, they would not have much knowledge of other Italian foods, so with this publication we have now eaten homemade Pesto Focaccia that was amazingly easy to prepare using my food processor and my large mixer with a dough hook. We also ate the Bolognese Sauce from page 38, but with purchased pasta. I will definitely use more of the recipes since the two that I have tried are absolutely wonderful. The recipes were easy to follow and clearly written, but they were time consuming. Do not translate the word ‘easy’ to mean ‘quick.’ I will utilize more of the recipes with time, but at $2.99, this cookbook definitely gives you value for the price.
