Rated 5 out of 5 by VictoriaBeck Perfect Couples Gift!
I bought this originally to gift to my brother and sister in law, and I loved it so much that I bought another for myself! The stories that go along with each meal add a certain comfort to this cookbook; giving it more of a 'love story' feel! The recipes are difficult and a labor of love, but it is fun to look through and be inspired. Perfect for a date night with the husband after the kids are in bed! Crack open the wine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyAntoniaGirl A Gift Too Beautiful To Give
I bought this book to give my best friend for her birthday. She's getting married later this year (I'm her maid-of-honor! Yay!!) so I thought it would be a wonderful addition to her future kitchen shelves. I flipped through it several times and stayed up late one night completely enthralled with all the delicious recipes and relatable stories. I snapped cellphone pictures of the Affogato recipe, the Thyme and Parmesan Roasted Sweet Potatoes, the Cacio e Pepe with Parmesan Frico, and of course, the Chocolate Chaud. After drooling over the enticing pictures, I decided it was just too good to give away, I wanted to keep it for myself! It’s very Italian-grandma-meets-red-lipstick-wearing-blonde, with romantic stories of bistros and cafés in Italy. It was just much more “me” and less suited for my friend (we’re opposites in just about every way imaginable). I ended up giving my friend a different book from Anthro, the Q&A book for couples, which she and her fiancé loved! Double score!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mlh1980 Can not wait to try!
This book is a complete win! The pictures are amazing, the recipes wonderful, and the stories she tells to go along with the dinners are so easy to relate to! No one is perfect. But create an amazing dinner and it may seem like that for one sweet night in together. This book would make a wonderful gift, however I'm keeping this copy and plan to use it frequently!
