To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As someone who has some experience in making pasta, I purchased this book to learn more from another who appears to have vast experience in this area. I found the general background information quite helpful. Well organized and easy to combine with practice. I found those suggestions and recipes that were familiar to me to be quite accurate and expect that the information that went beyond my experiences was equally well based in practice and experience of the author. The book is easy to read and deserves a five except for a little difficulty when it comes to translating recipes from mortar and pestle to food processor. Some elements seem to be missing although I believe they can be figured out. A four and one=half would be more appropriate but I an limited by the star system.

This book has recipes and intsruction for nearly 60 different pastas, stuff I would never have imagined could be made at home. Add to that a couple dozen ragus and sauces, and you have a wonderful cookbook.
