cooking classes There are definitely some scores being settled here Hazan lambasts her editor recommended by Julia Child after some alleged snub has the editor not treating Hazan as she believes she should be treated.Other than that, some great bits Like many great cooks, she focuses on the fresh, local and traditional Honestly, I really enjoyed this book, but I love cooking and have been cooking

was very interesting reading about the advent of destination cooking courses, which are quite common now but when Marcella began teaching it was a fairly new concept For my taste there was a bit too much name dropping re who attended her classes over the years And she writes of many instances where relationships don t work out over the long term, both friendships and professional, and it comes through that she may not be the easiest person to work with or get along with I am all fired up though to go visit Italy this happened to me after reading Under the Tuscan Sun too and all fired up to go marketing and then spend some quality time in the kitchen So on that front this book succeeds very well If you re a foodie you ll probably enjoy reading this book The first section of this book was very interesting I enjoyed reading about Marcella s journey from Egypt to Milan and reading about her time at Lake Garda during World War II She has some very interesting stories to share, especially the one about the skeleton The last 2 3 of the book involved a lot of self serving name dropping and that was considerably less enjoyable The book became a slog to read The low point was when she

Ms Hazen didn t have a talented grandnephew to write this as did Julia Child in her fantastic memoir, My Life in France The beginning of the book is interesting as it is filled with memories of life in Italy during WWII, moving to New York as a nonEnglish speaker, and suchlike However, once her career becomes food oriented the pace and interest level slows way down I was especially put off by the

becomes food oriented the pace and interest level slows way down I was especially put off by the way she justified her final break with Knopf by entering her book that compiled old recipes into an awards program designed to honor new books over the publisher s protests She seemed to think that the fact that her cookbook won was justification enough when all it proved was that her celebrity made others overlook what the publisher very properly recognized it was an old cookbook in new format Fascinating memoir of the life of Marcella Hazan I especially enjoyed the stories of pre war Italy She had a long and eventful life If you ve used her cookbooks you ll love this. As the author says, this isa book of memories and remembrance than an autobiography A thoroughly enjoyable read of her travels from Italy to the US, of the woman many of us look to teach us classic Italian cuisine. I confess to not knowing about Marcella prior to receiving this book, last Christmas.Reading about a person s path to success is something I enjoy, particularly the turning points that launch the

person s path to success is something I enjoy, particularly the turning points that launch the person to the next level Marcella s career perhaps began through her love of Chinese food, and a Chinese cooking class in which she was a student When their teacher left on sabbatical, the students wantedSo they asked Marcella for lessons in Italian cooking that was one of Marcella s turning points.Marcella writes about her experiences with humor Having grown up in an Italian family, and written my own book about my immigrant relatives mistakes with English, I can appreciate Marcella s struggles In one seafood lesson, she quickly learned to substitute another word for skewer after instructing her students to screw their shrimp.Marcella s son, Giuliano, is the subject of my favorite anecdote Entering school in New York, with Italian as his first language, Marcella was concerned how he d adjust Lunch turned out to be the problem, not language Sending a kid to school in the 1960s with normal, homemade food such as veal stew, tortelloni, and tasty soups, while other kids eat bologna sandwiches, is indeed a way to be seen as the weird kid Homemade cannellini bean soup Oh, how I envied him The book is very well written, even with the exception, in the last third of the book, of many peoples names presented in excess, for my taste this felt like name dropping The chosen material is readable, enjoyable, and has a purpose Never does a chapter linger, or lose momentum I will purchase Marcella s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.And so, cheers to the students from that Chinese cooking class, who long ago asked Marcella for lessons I really enjoyed this book I just came back from a trip to Tuscany and her Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking has become my bible, much to the happiness of my family I wondered why with so many reprints it had not been updated to acontemporary look, now I know I loved reading about how she became a cook for her family in

to find all the right ingredients I remember a trip to Florida in 1969, my mother was Italian and we went to visit my dad s brother and wife, who after a year without my mom s cooking were craving just simple spaghetti and meatballs It took us all day to make the trip to all the stores necessary to find the herbs, canned tomatoes no fresh in December , pasta, and ground beef, veal and pork Forget the bread, that still is impossible anywhere One reviewer mentioned her struggles with publishers Yes, she did have problems with her publishers and she spoke about it But, the books were her creations and she trusted that the publishers would have the same passions for their work as she had I found it refreshing and interesting to see how things really go, and that failures can be overcome Bless you for Balsamic Vinegar I adored this memoir by talented, opinionated, entrepreneurial, tenacious Signora Hazan I was fascinated to read about her family history and so also some history of Italy , her travels with husband and their various homes in Italy, and her interests, which were not limited to Italian cooking, naturally.Her enthusiasm for meals as memorable as they are simple and her insistence on teaching others to cook good, unpretentious Italian food are both inspiring I suspect that her frequent squabbles I adored this memoir by talented, opinionated,

are both inspiring I suspect that her frequent squabbles with publishers and collaborators reveal a personality perhapsdifficult than she would care to admit, but that commitment to quality control and unwavering personal principles is what made her such a superstar and so incredibly influential I adore her and her approach to cooking My enjoyment of the book was only tinged by sadness at having
