Four Seasons by Manuela Darling-Gansser

I am so drawn to Italy. I am passionate about food and not just the food on the plate. From glittering palazzos to humble seaside bars, from the derelict and forgotten islands to thriving vineyards, Manuela Darling-Gansser's journey across Italy reveals authentic recipes and long-held food traditions. Like its landscape, Italy's food is one of contrasts rich spices, fresh herbs, exquisite cheeses, hearty pastas, decadent desserts, and plenty of oranges, lemons and pistachios. And all Italians would agree, the best food is cooked at home. Drawn from the best of Italian cuisine, Manuela's recipes are always tempting and make it easy to introduce the flavours of Italy into your home. Divided into four chapters: Spring Summer, Autumn and Winter, this collection of Manuela's favourite recipes is sure to become a kitchen favourite.
