I too, am disappointed that Donna doesn't quote measurements. I watched the Cooking with Anna (Olson ) series and it was simply great... Complete with hints and measurements. And yes I have purchased her books and written (my) notes on the recipe pages...
I would like to do the same with Donnas book but by the time it comes "out" -- September I believe.... The momentum may have passed.
Please Donna, can you alter your cooking shows with measurements... We will still buy your book, in fact more of us would probably do so because of the absolute reference it would bring.

Does anyone have the ricotta gnocchi recipe....please?

I saved that episode so I could make that and I did it tonight.
1 cup ricotta
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Parmesan
2 eggs
She mixed it till it just came together, tipped it out on a floured bench, kneaded it a little, cut it in two, rolled it into a snake and cut them. Cook in salted boiling water until they float then cook off in a frypan with your sauce.
She added roasted garlic to the mix as well which I think it needs. It's a touch bland.

I am looking for the spelt bread recipe also. Obviously not on the site with the other recipes from that episode. Love her recipes. Little piqued that I have to spend $65 to order new book online (including delivery). I will buy it when it hits the shops assuming it is not that price. Foxtel very expensive and I agree with Jan747, would like to have quantities of ingredients.

Please go back to the original format. So trying to be Nigella all the pics of Donna with her mouth wide open laughing and running on the beach with coffee and so on is just ott. We have to watch all this self promotion then are told on website there will only be a selection of written recipes there will be videos which Donna often does not give the quantities. You have to buy her new book at around $55. All the other Chefs I watch always give correct recipes. We are already paying for Foxtel to see this show but have to purchase her book to get all the correct recipes. This is ridiculous and a bit pointless giving it a miss from now on.
