I picked this up for supplemental info on marinara sauce. Me and my girlfriend have been experimenting with the garden ingredients and I believed this could help guide us into the right direction. Turns out that this book contains everything I needed for homemade pizza crust as well, which is a staple around my household. Date night has become more interesting since I have an array of awesome Italian cuisine that both me and my girl can enjoy :)
