    What authentic Italian cookbooks does anyone recommend? I currently only have Trattoria Cooking by Biba Caggiano.
    Thanks,
    Chef BK

    Anything from Marcella Hazan or Giuliano Buggiali comes to mind. Can't go wrong with those two.

    If you can find a copy of Ada Boni's Italian Regional Cooking, get it! Very informative, very do-able.

    Didn't we have a thread on this sometime recently?

    Gee, no. I did a search and there's no specific thread. But if you do a search on "Italian AND cookbook" on this board, you will find lots of other good recommendations. :)

    Also, I read in the TV Guide that they will be releasing The Sopranos cookbook in the fall sometime!

    Woo hoo!

    Authentic? Maybe not, but fun anyway.
