You know how they say, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover? Well, when it comes to cookbooks, I have a hard time following that adage. I just love pretty cookbooks, and, call me shallow, but I often buy them completely based on looks. There's obviously a reason for that saying, and, yes, I often end up with cookbooks that are pretty to look at, but don't deliver any substance. They sit on my shelf, trophies for people to admire. My one night stands that won't go away. But sometimes I find a cookbook that has it all. Domenica Marchetti's newest book, The Glorious Pasta of Italy, is such a cookbook: gorgeous on the inside and out, full of recipes that I've marked off to try, a companion I could spend a life time with.
