I'm a mom-of-two-little-boys-chef. We make a lot of homemade food (vs processed), but pasta is something I've never tried. It's a little daunting. I feel like I don't have the right tools. I've made dumplings and spaetzle - which are pretty elementary to fresh pasta, baked sheet pasta, stuffed pasta, and risotto.
Mastering Pasta is a great resource for new and mature chefs. The basic concept and instructions are given in each section before more the refined recipes. The pictures are phenomenal, of the pasta and other scenery - this could even be a coffee table book.
There's always a few things to point out that I would change (personal preferences). The pictures are great - but there are not captions for them. I would love to know where the scenery pictures were taken. I am also a simple (cheap) cook - I will not make most of the recipes in the book but will stick to the basic pasta, risotto, and 'stocks, sauces, and other basics' sections.
As always, thank you Blogging for Books - I will be a reviewer as long as you let me!
