And so it begins
This is my attempt to teach myself Italian cooking by working my way through Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. She is a bit cranky, but I think that is part of the charm. She reminds me of David Thompson in Thai Food, without the sense of humour. I won't be posting the recipes - you'll have to buy the book to see those. But I will give you my views on the process, and whether or not something is a success or not, and perhaps if anyone reads this they can give their views as well. Clearly Marcella is an excellent cook. Let's see if she can teach me!
