    This is my favorite book she's written. It is not a tome of authentic Italian recipes that she's collected over the years, but is instead a book and Italian food translated for the English kitchen. Her pastas are fantastic (my favorite being the Pasta with Zucchini) and the Chicken with Tarragon Salsa Verde is fantastic and light. When you're looking for real indulgence, her chocolate pasta with pecans and butterscotch sent me to the moon and back, being both delicious and unique.  Of course, one of the other great things about this book is being able to read Nigella's wonderful prose when she discusses the genesis of the recipes. Her love for Italy bleeds through the pages, and it's a fabulous read. If you want quick, uncomplicated, and delicious food, this is definitely the book for you.

    One of Nigella's best

    While Nigella Lawson's book Nigella Kitchen is my favorite, Nigellissima runs a very close second and is by far one of the loveliest cookbooks to have come out this year. Nigella's descriptions at the beginning of each recipe are as well-written as ever and the photography is by far the best of her books.

    As the book says right on the cover, this isn't truly authentic Italian food, but that doesn't stop any of it from being delicious, and in fact I rather like that she uses fresh British ingredients (particularly smoked fish) in many of the dishes. So far I have cooked several of the pastas and the Christmas almond/orange cake (albeit not at Christmas) and they were all hits; elegant and fuss-free and great for relaxing entertaining.

    I resent paying so much for such a small ecookbook. But the writing and recipes are so wonderful I can't really regret it.
