    Dear Gina,

    I have received your fantastic cookbook and cooked one of your recipes last night, the linguine alle Vongole with clams. I cooked it for my family and it was a big hit! Besides I love all your recipes it’s more than a cookbook, the book is filled with lovely stories an photos. The variety of recipes are ranging from simple dishes to complex recipes that challenge the more intermediate cooks. The variety of salads offered in your book is amazing. I can’t wait to cook the next dish Gina!
    thanks so much XX
