"Not merely another handsome book about Italian cookery, Eataly: Contemporary Italian cooking is only the most recent offering of a food revolution... Eataly is a bible, a guide for modern life, lived without undue waste of time, concentrating on the freshness and background of every ingredient... The recipes concentrate on freshness and simplicity, with some imaginative combinations of flavours... Most useful, perhaps, is the handsome and beautifully illustrated glossary... There are invaluable and informative lists of different varieties of rice, cereals, cheeses and dried beans. Eataly is a celebration of such ingredients, and of an intelligent understanding of the importance of taking food seriously and with discrimination - both valuable messages in an age of haste and expediency." —TLS (Times Literary Supplement)
"Fresh Italian twists." —Vanity Fair
"Eataly is the latest in Phaidon's famously elegant line of cookbooks, but we're loving it for more than its simple aesthetic and inviting textured cover... [The visual glossary] is arguably the most useful 40 pages ever published in a cookbook." —Tasting Table
"If Eataly is the church of Italian cooking, consider this is its holy book... [T]he photos are all frame-worthy, so even if your pal's stove is mostly used for storage, they'll appreciate the coffee table food porn." —Travel + Leisure Online

"Eataly: Contemporary Italian Cooking is a rare thing: a book I'd recommend heartily to someone who owns a few food books and cares little for the silly, cherry culture but wants to cook well at home with an Italian accent. And a book most avid food book consumers will want to own, too, for the freshness of its food ideas and the guarantee of recipe reliability that comes from a publisher such as Phaidon." —The Australian—-
