We cannot ever underestimate our debt to Italian cuisine - it is arguably the most delectable, the most influential, and the best-loved cuisine in the world. Quite apart from the perpetual presence of the best-known Italian exports in our lives - pasta, pizza and Parmesan cheese, to name but a few - so many things we eat have their roots in Italian cuisine. Ursula Ferrigno learnt to prepare traditional Italian dishes from her grandmother at an early age. This books contains 120 of her favourite, authentic Italian recipes based on readily available ingredients that are easily prepared by the home cook. Easy Italian begins with an introduction to some of the key components of the Italian storecupboard. The chapters that follow cover Antipasti, Soups, Breads and Pizza, Pasta, Polenta and Rice, Fish and Shellfish, Poultry and Meat, Vegetables and Salad, and Desserts. Packed with Ursula's characteristically simple yet flavourful recipes, ranging from Spinach, Olive and Onion Pesto and White Fish baked in Tomato Sauce with Caponata, and Chocolate Coated Figs, this book is a must for the enthusiastic home cook.
