Paolo Arrigo is passionate about food. Born and brought up in London, he is still very much an Italian at heart and was taught from an early age how to pick mushrooms, grow and cook vegetables and shout loudly when watching football. His whole life has revolved around food in one way or another and his company, Seeds of Italy, is an extension of that passion.
Vegetable based but not just for vegetarians, a cookbook that should come in for some heavy kitchen use. I found plenty of inspiration here, the mostly simple recipes grouped together by vegetable, very useful for the vegetable grower faced with a glut or lack of ideas. There is some gardening advice but with the authors connection to the company Seeds of Italy, what you do get is what varieties are best for the recipes, much more helpful than yet more cultivation information.
