I have only used this book occasionally. I rarely cook Italian even though I really like it (no capers please!) – usually its reserved for a restaurant visit. I’m not sure why.
With this post I am out of Time-Life Foods of the World Cookbooks to display, for the moment anyway. I would like to add to the collection in the future, and if I do, I will definitely post it. This has been interesting exploring this series – I have forgotten how many great recipes there are in here and have overlooked for some reason or other. I have been attempting to add a few more to my reportoire for the future, so you may see the completed recipes posted one day.
As always if you see a page you would like to see in better detail (on this or any of my cookbooks), drop me a line (my email address is on my About Me page) and I will get back to you.
Each image links to a larger picture if you want to read or use the recipe.
Each spiral bound book measures 9 inches by 6 inches and is about 1/4 inch thick.
More photos, recipes and information after the jump…
Zuppa di Pesce – fish soup and Zuppa di Cozze – mussel soup. I *LOVE* mussels and am going to make this in the early part of Fall, when it just starts to get chilly again.

Vitella alla Sarda – braised veal with tomato sauce and black olives and Polpette alla Casalinga – meatballs.
Gelati – ice cream and SO good! But since I usually buy mine pre-made from Whole Foods I should give this recipe a chance.
