Gina’s recipes are very straight forward and easy to make. The ingredients are all fresh and whole. She gives you suggestions on how to modify recipes if you follow a certain diet, provides a little history about the dish and the culture, and ends each dish with a wine pairing recommendation. She even includes her family in the book, which I thought was a nice added touch! There are so many recipes to choose from, that for me, the hardest part was deciding what to make first!

Since the beginning of last week, I had this craving for a savory and rustic dish. This book was recommended by a friend, and I was curious to see what it had to offer. I’m not exactly savvy when it comes to cooking, I usually just want to find the simplest, quickest way to get my food from scratch to the dinner plate. I don’t like drive-throughs or waiting in line for a meal. I’m not the type to wait to be served in a restaurant, and I dislike browsing through websites that are riddled with ads.
To my delight, this cookbook has simple instructions, and the categories are color-coded for easy access. I set out to buy the ingredients, and for sure, the instructions were easy for me to follow. Each recipe has its instructions clear and concise. I made the Chicken Cacciatore, and it came out delicious.
There’s a plethora of dishes to choose from, some wine pairings, and lots of great tips. I highly recommend this cookbook.
I can't wait to make every recipe in this book. Such soul food, full of flavor and the wine pairings are wonderful, especially for people who don't know much about wine like me, but still want to make nice wine pairings for a delightful dinner, or to entertain guests. I am loving all of the pasta dishes. So many amazing recipes you don't even know where to start!
