This is the book, all right.

Easy to follow, very explanatory, plus a good-looking book.

If you want to cook "Italian"

Using Hazan's book on Italian cooking is the only way to cook authentically Italian. I would not use anything else. Food is good and easy to prepare. Methods and ingredients are converted into American usage, so no translation is needed.
