Pasta Cookbook Recommendation

Greetings and Salutations Everyone,

Having fun going through the forums. Very appreciative of the high level of discourse and good humor. I’m home.

Looking for a pasta cook book. One that doesn’t use volumetric measurements. Metric is welcomed.

I’ve been making linguine and ravioli for over ten years.

Favorite is my KitchenAid Paste roller.

Thanks in Advance,

Do you want the main focus to be on the pasta itself or on recipes using pasta (or maybe equal focus)? It sounds like the former, but I thought I'd ask.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Never said anything 'bout sauce. So.. Why do you?

What is so unreasonable about him asking for clarification? (In fact, he never mentioned sauce, either.)

Pasta can be used to refer to both the ingredient and to dishes using the ingredient. Most "pasta cookbooks" will concentrate on the latter.

Thanks Franci. She has another book comming out Oct 14, '13. See below link

http://www.amazon.com/Sauces-Shapes-Pasta-Italian-Way/dp/0393082431/ref=la_B0026BZGRI_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1380184613&sr=1-2

Sauces & Shapes: Pasta the Italian Way, which Oretta and I cowrote, has sections on sauces, soups in which pasta is used, and fresh pasta, plus a long introductory section that is sort of a user's manual for pasta.

      Does anyone have any thoughts about Alice Waters' new "40 Years of Chez Panisse"? Not a recipe cookbook - more of a memoir/history/picture book.

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
