    The book does cover areas that I wanted to explore with using different kinds of flours in pasta making. This book also covers different methods of making pasta by hand or machine. If your your looking for sauce recipes for pastas you will be disappointed. If your looking for something that is gluten free you will also be disappointed. This book covered exactly what I was looking for and I was thoughly pleased.

    An excellent book, worth owning. Makes me wish I had the pasta-making equipment so I could dive in and start making all the filled pastas, sheet pastas, and dumplings that are some of the most intriguing recipes in the book. The brilliant photography really sells each dish and style of noodle, taking you step-by-step through the whole process. Moving this to my Amazon wish list!

    So many amazing things you can do with pasta I bought this book as a curiosity awhile back and just briefly looked through it hoping it would include pasta with alternative flours. It doesn't, BUT now I have gotten to read the entire book and am impressed at how much can be done with a few simple ingredients.

It doesn't, BUT now I have gotten to read the entire book and am impressed at how much can be done with a few simple ingredients. Noodles are my absolute favorite comfort food and the authors have included instructions for many of my favorites from many different countries, including ramen and other popular Japanese noodles; pierogi like my grandmother used to make; Turkish manti; herbs pressed into the pasta, etc. There is everything, and I mean everything you want to know about pasta. And, something that is important to me, there are colored pictures of the process of making each one and the end results. This is not a recipe book. It is a pasta and noodle making book with recipe suggestions as to what flavors would go well with the pasta ingredients. I am going to order a hard copy version of this book for my library so I can easily go to the tabbed pages. By the way, I AM gluten sensitive, so I intend to use the "recipes" as samples to experiment with other flours such as Einkorn and chickpea flours.

    Hands down my favorite pasta book. Great detail and excellent explanations. I feel like this book is great for both beginners and seasoned makers alike. Been hogging this one at the library, up to renewal number 3 :D

    I read the book. Cover to cover. Twice. I own a ridiculous number of cookbooks and it's a pretty special cookbook to get me to read it like a novel and inspire me into the kitchen immediately...or at least making an ingredients list immediately. Making Artisan Pasta is such a book. Aliza Green writes about pasta, about ingredients, how to make pasta, form pasta, and so many more ideas and tips on making fabulous pasta. The photos are similarly inspirational from the step-by-step photos to the beau I read the book. Cover to cover. Twice. I own a ridiculous number of cookbooks and it's a pretty special cookbook to get me to read it like a novel and inspire me into the kitchen immediately...or at least making an ingredients list immediately. Making Artisan Pasta is such a book. Aliza Green writes about pasta, about ingredients, how to make pasta, form pasta, and so many more ideas and tips on making fabulous pasta. The photos are similarly inspirational from the step-by-step photos to the beautifully styled finished dishes. Admittedly, this book could seem intimidating - from working with dough and all the different appliances and gadgets - but it's really not. Green's instructions can inspire the most dough-averse person to make delicious homemade pasta. And while there are recipes that call for specific gadgets, she offers adaptations and hacks in case you don't want to plunk down any money for said gadget. Perhaps one of my favorite aspects of the book is that it isn't limited Italian pasta. Making Artisan Pasta explores noodle-making traditions from around the globe, including Japan, China, and Turkey. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone considering taking up pasta-making as a hobby. It's inspiring and easy-to-follow. I have included links below to the book itself as well as the pasta machine and drying rack I use at home.

    Now that I am retired, hopefully I will have more time to devote to cooking.

I have been interested in making homemade pasta ever since I obtained an old hand pasta roller from my mom that used to belong to my grandma. In reading this book, the first thing I noticed is that one can spend an absurd amount of time and money making homemade pasta. Since the book was actually overdue to the library when I began reading it (it is very popular and has a waiting list), I wasn't able to give it the attention I would have liked. I read the basic techniques for making the dough and rolling sheets very carefully, but when it came to the lengthy sections on handmade pastas and filled pastas, I only had time to skim the writing and look at the pictures. (Yes, in my retirement I am reverting to grade school habits.) Certainly this is a book worth owning, and I will write down several recipes into my notes. As a final endorsement, even though this is primarily a cookbook one can pick up a fair bit of Italian culture if one is paying attention.

    This was an interesting little cookbook. The emphasis was definitely on artisan pasta- i.e., pasta as an art form- rather than practical/everyday types of things, but it definitely had a lot of creative ideas to get you thinking. I subtracted 1 star for the almost complete lack of suggestion for what to DO with these interesting pastas once you had it made, except in the very vaguest of terms: "This pasta might go well with seafood," and "Don't serve this pasta with a cream sauce."

    Very well put together with wonderful photography. All the instructions and recipes were well written and very inspired without being pretentious. I made several of the pastas, mostly the ones incorporating veggie juices, and they all came out perfect with the added bonus of the recipes translating well for pasta machine use. I'd judge that this book is best suited for someone who's already made their own pasta a few times as it can get frustrating trying a more intricate dish for a first time.

    Love this book! I will definitely be using my pasta maker more often! This book is full of gorgeous pictures, fantastic recipes, and super helpful tips. It breaks down everything from different flours and eggs, to work surfaces, to hand preparation vs machine. Plus there are many different recipes for flavored pasta doughs as well as filled and shaped pastas.

    So glad my best friend got me this for my birthday. This is an awesome one to own. Logical recipes. Gorgeous photography. I can't wait to start making these pastas. Any one know where one would purchase durum flour for cheap? Checked both my stores, nada.

    Every recipe I've tried so far has been 100% on point. Amazing book and I especially love the history included on pasta shapes and all the information on the ingredients. Highly recommend.
