Nigella’s take on Italian food, the clue in the title - Italian Inspiration. If you’re looking for authenticity then this isn’t the book for you but there are some good pasta ideas, new takes on Italian favourites, using traditional ingredients, twisting and changing them to something new and quick to prepare. I’ve seen moans about hard-to-come-by ingredients and fancy kit but as all Nigella Lawson fans know, there’s always something delicious to find in her books and she’s a great motivator. Not her absolute best but definitely worth adding to the kitchen book shelf.

Synopsis

Nigellissima Instant Italian Inspiration by Nigella Lawson

Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts. Italian food has colonised the world. Nigellissima shows us how and why in over 100 delicious dishes - from telephone-cord pasta with Sicilian pesto to the crustless Meatzza, from Sardinian couscous to Venetian stew, from penne to papardelle, from ragu to risotto, from Italian apple pie and no-churn ices to panna cotta and sambuca kisses - in a round-Italy quickstep that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas feast as its mouthwatering centrepiece. From the traditional to the unfamiliar, here are recipes to excited the taste buds and the imagination, without stressing the cook. Nigella's gastronomic heart is in Italy, and in this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight Nigellissima is accompanied by a major new BBC TV series.
