If you can't find a sauce in this book that you will love then, my friend, you must want to have sauces made with crushed flies! The book is divided into 26 chapters based on the main ingredient for the sauces that you may be lloking for. ie. sauces made from buttur/olive oil; cream and meat or seafood;cream;;nutmeats;tomatoes;tomatoes and meat;uncooked cheese ;vegetrables ... ecte ect Each of the recepies is clear cut SUPER FAST in most cases ( except the simmering for some sauces) and, MOST IMPORTANT, the author gives us a full list of the ingredient options. I just made the four cheese sauce and if you can't find the Fontina, Bel Paeze or Gorgonzola cheese the recipie calls for he gives us a list of other cheeses to replace the ones asked for in the ITALIAN recepie. WOW .... you know there are very very few cookbooks with that kind of simple foresight... I think the book must weigh in at over 500 pages ... has NO pictures (a disadvantage in my book) is all written in large capital lettesr and leaves a section for you to write when you tried the recepie and if you loved it or hated it ... If you like pasta dishes this book is a MUST buy .........

This book is very good for the new cook or the old pro. I got it as a wedding gift but I didn't cook at the time. As I got used to the idea of being in a kitchen this book really helped me out a lot. I know use it a lot and find myself wanting to give it to all new cooks!
Used book for years!

I really like this book. It is what it says it is- an encyclopedia of sauces. I've probably made over 100 of the recipes, and have liked most. I'm especially fond of the pistachio sauce and the mushroom sauce. If you like pasta, and want to have a variety of sauces to add to your repertoire, this is a winner.
Fantastic- essential for every cook

Perhaps one of the best features is the check list which allows you the oppurtunity to choose for yourself wether or not your family liked it. A true godsend to pasta!
