Kirstin: Well this book, while not perfect, had me wanting to travel to Italy.
Maureen: It was a wonderful way to spend the month.
Kirstin: I know. Indulging in all our favourite flavours. Any favourites? I personally loved the broccoli and pasta recipe. But I have to say I was very dubious about the photography. Not of the recipes themselves, but of the scenes around Italy. They had been processed in some very strange, almost polaroid-like style which did not suit the book at all.
