As far back as I can remember, I have been a fan of certain Italian dishes... pizza, spag bol, canneloni... so when I had a chance to experience authentic Italian fare I was stunned to find out that not only had I seen but a bare fraction of what was really there, but the dishes I was used to aren't all that authentic!

Overall, some stunning options for dining, which I will be investigating in great detail next time I have company over for dinner... I plan to give their 'Ragu Bolognese' (Page 30) a try, to see how a traditional recipe matches up to my personal variety, and since they even suggest it be used as a filling for Canneloni (page 23) that will scoop two bowls with one spatula.
