This inspirational cookbook provides a wealth of mouth-watering Italian recipes, from classic pasta and risotto dishes to less known but equally tasty Italian favourites. The Mediterranean diet is an exceptionally healthy one, and Italian cooking relies on using good quality seasonal produce in peak condition. Bold, natural flavours and vibrant colours are the hallmarks of Italian cuisine, and the recipes included in this book are both delicious and good for you. All the recipes use fresh ingredients with the emphasis on flavour and visual appeal. They are practical and easy to follow, accompanied by step-by-step instructions and full-page colour photography.
