i love lidia bastianich. i've browsed her many cookbooks but i have never purchased one. i'd like to puchase one in near future, but wonder if there is one that stands out as the best? or favorite?
please - i'd appreciate it if those who don't like her do not respond about how much they don't like her. obviously we all have different taste and i personally like her and would like good information about what to purchase, not reasons why i shouldn't.
caveats such as recipes taking more time than the book implies would be useful though.
