KIRKUS REVIEW

An attractive and convincing aria in praise of pasta and its progeny--spaghetti, linguine, noodles, etc. In spite of the dumpy versions deadening the appetite at some restaurants and homes, the semolina-and-water-based product is not overly cursed with calories and is nutritious. Light, spicy and stimulating is the author's plea, and his simple-to-intricate recipes are imaginative and tempting. Homemade pasta, sauces, soups, meaty brews--and no tomato pastel With photographs of Italy by Samuel Chamberlain, and a glossary, this is perline for pasta people.
