I did start this book thinking, oh no not another Italian cookery book but the Chiappa sisters’ writing in the introduction of their love of good Italian family food soon won me over. Their ebullient style, the deliciousness of the food really does make you want to get stuck in and conjure up a good Italian meal. The recipes are family favourites and it shows, I loved the chatty and enthusiastic recipe introductions and the sisters confidence is infectious and it will soon be one of those books stained and spattered from overuse in the kitchen.

Synopsis

Simply Italian Cooking at Home with the Chiappa Sisters by Michela Chiappa

This is the very best of Italian cooking with Michela, Romina and Emanuela in At Home with the Chiappa Sisters . 'Wales and Italy, family and food: for us, these four things are inextricably linked and at the root of our upbringing. Whether at the family home in Wales or when we spend holidays in the small hilltop village we are from in northern Italy, we have always heard Dad say that 'la tavola' (the table) is the central focus of our lives. It's where we cook, eat and socialise as a family.' Michela, Emanuela and Romina Chiappa grew up in Wales in the heart of a close-knit Italian community where food was always at the centre of family and social gatherings. Whether searching for porcini in the hills near their parents' home, or making pasta for Christmas Eve with the whole family, to sharing food at the annual Welsh-Italian summer picnic, the three sisters have been immersed in the Italian way of cooking all their lives. In their first cookbook they share their cherished family recipes, including all the pasta dishes recently seen in their Channel 4 series Simply Italian . From snacks, soups and salads, to mains, side dishes and desserts, At Home with the Chiappa Sisters brings you good, simple, fresh Italian food. Michela Chiappa works as an agent in a sports management company, as well running a coffee and pizza cafe in Cardiff with her husband. Of the sisters, she's the risotto expert and also loves to make pasta sauces. Romina works for a luxury fashion brand is London, and loves to bake for friends and family. Emanuela runs an online business selling bespoke homemade gifts for children, and works as a nanny. She loves to cook time-consuming means and entertain large groups.
