    1. Even if the recipes weren't wonderful, I love the photos and commentary. But ohmyfrikkingod, the pizza dough alone is worth buying this book.My review over at 101 Cookbooks Library (yes, I am too lazy to retype it):May 12, 2010This is one of my favorite cookbooks, hands down. The photographs are beautiful, the recipes are easy to follow, and you can feel Jamie's passion for this food emanating from every page. This is also one of my toddler's favorite cookbooks - she will thumb through and gaze [...]

    3. My grandparents came from Sicily and most of the dishes in this book are the dishes I grew up cooking and eating. These are the dishes I just throw together from habit not from a recipe. But there were two recipes in this book that I decided to try and they were both OUTRAGEOUSLY delicious! They were so good that I could not believe that I cooked them. The first one I tried was the pasta with anchovies in tomato sauce. It took 3 different pans but it was simple to prepare and had me almost howli [...]

    4. So much better than I ever imagined. This adorable guy actually writes an amazing and easy to follow cookbook. His take on italian was inspiring and I am so glad I was introduced to this book. His measurements are not exact and when he advises seasoning to taste, make sure you do. Here are the once I've tasted and the cookbook club cooks who made them:Sheela - funghi al forno ripieni di ricotta: *sigh* Mushrooms stuffed with ricotta. Say no more.Gretchen - Pollo alla cacciatora: This chicken ste [...]

    5. This is one of my favorite cookbooks, surprisingly written by a non-Italian. Jamie Oliver immerses himself in the Italian culture and brings out the best parts of their cookingmply prepared foods made with the best and freshest ingredients. I'm a vegetarian, and though the book includes meat recipes (and one really gross picture of a lamb being slaughtered), there are ample meat-free recipes that are extremely tasty. The book's highlights: a fantastic pizza recipe, and Spaghetti Alla Trapanese. [...]

    6. Who doesn't love Jamie? I used to love watching his first show, I think on BBC, and he was amazing! Never measuring anything, always fun, and totally stunning concoctions :-) This book is no different, he is exactly the same as he always is, and he is perfect! Get the book!

    7. Na época em que este livro estava em seu auge aqui no Brasil, acredito que entre 2007 e 2008, eu não o comprei, mas fiquei com ele na cabeça por inúmeros elogios que aqui e ali eu ouvia. Quando uma livraria na cidade fechou as portas, fazendo antes uma grande promoção de livros, este foi um dos que escolhi para levar para casa.Ele tem um estilo de edição parecido com alguns outros do mesmo autor, com fotos incríveis do David Loftus e um texto de entrada em cada receita, bem informal. A [...]

    8. I like Jamie. He, like Bittman and Pepin, is also focused on fast and healthy meals, but he's a bit sloppy when it comes to measurements. What constitutes a "small bunch"? How much is "some"? I mean, once you've got your bearings in the kitchen, you can probably sort it out, but if you're a new cook you might be intimidated by this "cooking by feel" method. However, I mainly checked this one out of the library for the amazing-looking Italian pizzas, and I'm looking forward to trying some of his [...]

    9. The usefulness of this book depends in large part on how many Italian cookbooks you already own. I previewed this via the library and fortunately so, because I already have most of these recipes, or close enough. But if this will be your first, second, or third Italian book, it could still be quite worthwhile and the instructions are straightforward with plenty of photos. It does seem to be about 50% Sicilian, which isn't what everyone expects from an Italian cookbook. A recipe for fresh tuna me [...]

    10. Jamie's 2005 cookbook is anything but pretentious or following any weird food-hypes. The book is typically Jamie; his use of the word 'tiger', the pictures of people cooking, rather than pictures of the food they are cooking, the insistence of using good ingredients and numerous pictures of a broad-smiling Jamie. He does not pretend to be cooking Italian like an Italian, but he presents a different take on Italian food which is known to people outside of Italy. His starting point is what the Bri [...]

    11. 4.5 for the non-Italian, almost perfect. The only reason I did not give it five is the same issue others have mentioned, the lack of specific measurements on certain things: "glug of oil" Is that a tablespoon? I normally wouldn't have a problem with this as I tend to cook by feel and mood, but some ingredients, like eggplant, are sensitive to the amount of moisture added so I can see this becoming a problem. Even if you have other Italian cookbooks do give this one a shot. Jamie's passion for th [...]

    12. For Oliver's 30th birthday a few years ago, he took a food excursion through Italy and then wrote a cookbook about the experience. This was a great read. The essays sprinkled throughout really do provide a glimpse at a different way of looking at food. The message came across loud and clear that Italians care deeply about food and that it is an activity worth putting your time into. I was inspired to try the potato, rosemary, and thyme pizza from scratch last night and it was delicious. Many of [...]

    13. The photography and recipes in this cookbook really captures what I call "everyday Italy." Yes, the famous sites and dishes are great (and worth seeing and eating if you go), but Jamie focuses in on what it's like to live in the country on a day to day basis. It's simple and delicious food using the best ingredients you can get your hands on; it's focusing on getting off the beaten path and trying something new/something you never thought you could make successfully at home. I enjoyed this cookb [...]

    14. From the worlds richest chef his worst book as a follow up to his worst TV series.To me Oliver was totally out of his depth, perhaps he hadn't researched enough before his visit. Maybe his increasing wealth made him drop his standards.I found the TV show almost embarrassing and the book does little, if anything, to change my mind.To cook Italian, get a cookbook by someone who cooks the cuisine regularly and knows what they're talking about. This applies to any cuisine.Keith Floyd who made TV ser [...]

    15. For anyone beginning to explore Italian, this book would be a perfect starting point. I say this as not only does Oliver provide wonderful recipes, the Italian-ness of them is explained. Each dish has a story, and Oliver is an expert in telling it. I'd also highly recommend it as this is from a chef who is not only trained in the Italian way of cooking by Italians, but wrote the book, and discovered many of the recipes, because he went to Italy and bothered to look beyond pizza and pasta (though [...]

    16. First of all, I have not read all of Jamie Oliver's cook books. I have read a few. This is by far his worst I would reckon if I was to hazard a guess. Brutal. The only areas of interest in this book are the fresh salads. I am not Italian, but I know I personally have better Italian recipes in my head than what I found in this book. To me, the whole book seemed like Jamie was camping in the hills of Italy, grabbing whatever was lying around and making feasts which were not even fit for a hobo. To [...]

    18. As a fan of cookbooks and italian food in particular I definately would recommend this book to friends and family. I use this all of the time, even just as inspiration. Jamies pizza dough recipe has become a staple in my household and paired with a pizza stone it creates a authemtic italian pizza experience! Our household is vegetarian and although there are many meat dishes in this book I find it gets more use than some of my veggie books. I love reading this and thinking of ways I can adapt a [...]

    19. I can't not like this book. While I wouldn't describe myself as a fan of "the naked chef", Jamie's beliefs about food do resonate with me. And the fact that he goes bumbling around Italy appropriating the recipes of grandmothers and fishermen makes his cooking even more endearing - it reassures me that my amateurish efforts may not be half as laughable as I think they are.Oh, I do love Italian food too - and the gorgeous pictures! So I went into the reading experience already naturally biased.

    21. I painstakingly hand copied a ton of excellent sounding recipes from this book. I wish I owned it, but the library copy will have to suffice for now. I especially loved all the little stories in there and definitely gravitated to wanting to try out recipes from my Sicilian heritage as not much has been passed down to me from my family. Also, kind of funny, but several pictures of the Sicilian men totally have some of my dad's facial characteristics including his nose. So now I know where that co [...]

    22. Makes a mean minestrone soup. His little tips and summaries are better than the recipes themselves.The goal is simple, good food in lieu of any fancy, ornate stuff. I also cooked the risotto, eggplant parmesan and a butternut squash pasta dish. They were all good, but the minestrone worked the best for me.This is probably worth a spot on my cookbook shelf, but until then I'll just renew my return date from the library.

    23. How can you not love Jamie Oliver? From his pinchable cheeks to his amazing food to his food politics - he's got it all. I really admire what Jamie has done for the sustainable food movement: he focuses on local, sustainable food without hitting you over the head with his politics. The food and the photography in Jamie's Italy is something special. I just can't say enough good things about this guy. Jamie, are you listening?

    24. My not-so-secret passion is cooking, and I can while away countless hours leafing through a good cookbook, preferably one with lots of Pavlovish photos. My favourite? Jamie Oliver’s Italy. Filled with fabulous photographs of the man grilling rabbit, lamb, and quail over smoldering vine clippings and olive wood, the makings of a rustic kitchen stuffed in a beat-up vintage Coleman cooler…mmm. This book speaks to a simpler way of life that holds great appeal to me.

    25. I FINALLY got a library card ;-) and this was one of the first books I checked out as I am trying to trin myself that I don't need to own every cookbook out there. (Baby steps!) This book is full of delicious-sounding recipes and great photos as is typical of Jamie. I have only tried the Eggplant & Mint Bruschette so far but it was simple and tasted great. Here's the link to the recipe and photos: kahakaikitchen/20

    27. YUMMMM. Jamie Oliver presents more authentic Italian cuisine (a relieving departure from Americanized ethnic cookbooks) without pretension to being the authoritative "last word" in Italian food. The recipes are a mix of the simple and the complex, providing a range of meal possibilities that can actually be used in daily cooking.

    28. been loving watching jamie on tv for quite a while (even naming my unborn child 'olive' after his surname 'oliver') sooo looking forward to read his books. my copy of this jamie's italy is still in US, waiting to be handed to the rightful-antisipating-owner ;p herbayu, kapan pulang?

    29. I haven't made anything from this one yet, but it's very pretty - and in parts gruesome. Jamie Oliver believes that you should know where your food comes from, and makes no qualms about showing the animals that you're eating. Those parts can be difficult - but the cookbook is great.

    30. Just two stars because the recipes won't really be of use to me. BUT it's a gorgeous book and I LOVE that he narrates the entire cookbook. I would definitely pick up his other books. And would recommend this if you plan on doing any rustic Italian cooking.
