Five of the best books about pasta

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books about pasta:
by Bill Buford

An accomplished writer and editor puts down his pen and picks up a knife in the kitchen at Mario Batali's acclaimed NYC restaurant Babbo. After that first trial by fire, Buford travels to Italy to study the art of pasta-making under the old masters. Funny, fascinating, and -- of course -- elegantly composed, his adventures in the world of fine dining are a delight to savor.
Read about the other books on the list.
