So I'm almost ashamed to admit this picture showcases just a section of my cookbook library - and just a section of the Italian cookbooks at that. There are so many Italian cookbooks out there it can be almost impossible to know where to start, so a lot of people just reach for titles by the big name TV celebrity chefs like Giada, Lidia, Mario et al. Truthfully I don't think many of them are nearly as good as some of the lesser-known Italian cookbooks out there.

Based on my years in the kitchen, I've put together a list of my top 10 favorite Italian cookbooks. These are all books I've used recipes from repeatedly and found delicious and not too difficult to prepare at home. Are any of these books on your shelf? What are your favorite Italian cookbooks?
