Gregg Wallace has fallen in love with Italian cuisine. Along with his wife Anna, and a little help from her Italian parents, he has created a simple Italian cookbook so we can all enjoy traditional Italian cuisine at home.
For Italians, food is not just about recipes, it’s a way of life. It’s about making time for each other, forgetting work and worries, and enjoying tasty, satisfying meals. Gregg and Anna share the dishes they have explored, laughed and argued about with their family, from vitello tonnato to orecchiette and crespelle to veal chops, bagna cauda and bowls of vongole. Brought to life through stunning photography in the Tuscan countryside and buzzing food markets, you’ll discover traditional recipes, cooked the authentic Italian way.
‘I want to do this book and I want to do it with my new Italian family. Everybody knows this is my favourite cuisine…it is to my mind the greatest cuisine of the world. It’s family food, it brings people to the table, it’s not difficult to do, everybody can learn to cook this way…I have discovered so much love in this new family of mine and it’s centred around the table. I want to share this passion, I want everybody to taste their own slice of it.” – Gregg Wallace
