  • Pleasure provoking ... [Rachel's] recipes seem to beam her readers into the kitchen with her as she cooks, helping us to absorb the tastes, textures, sounds and smells of everything along the way.

    Nigella Lawson
  • I love this book. Every story is a little gem - a beautiful hymn to each curl, twist and ribbon of pasta.

    Nigel Slater
  • Rachel Roddy describing how to boil potatoes would inspire me. I want to live under her kitchen table. There are very, very few who possess such a supremely uncluttered culinary voice as hers, just now

    Simon Hopkinson
  • When I describe this, [Rachel's] third book, as a journey into the world of pasta, I am short-selling what a soaring and glorious read it is...The intensely curious Roddy is an earthily sensual writer unencumbered by an excess of ego

    Nicola Miller
  • Rachel Roddy's writing is as absorbing as any novel

    Russell Norman
  • Oh I wish I could write like Rachel. She is a natural: recipes that instantly make you want to cook and then eat. I love this book.

    Angela Hartnett
  • Roddy is a gifted storyteller, and a masterful hand with simple ingredients

    Guardian Cook
  • Unpretentious, unusual and delicious

    Country Life on Five Quarters
  • An A-Z of Pasta is not only immensely user-friendly and practical, it is also a labour of love...Open the book on any page, get into the kitchen, and you are guaranteed a delicious meal
