The Italian Regional Cookbook, Hardback Book


Famous for its bold flavours, seasonal ingredients and vibrant colours, Italian has repeatedly been voted the world's favourite cuisine.

Take a closer look, though, and you will discover that there is much more to this nation's food than the ubiquitous pasta, pizzas and risottos offered at many restaurants.

Italian cooking expert Valentina Harris examines each area in turn, with a carefully curated selection of recipes, and detailed instructions and photographs to help you achieve an authentic, and completely delicious, end result.

This comprehensive book is a must-have reference for anyone who is passionate about cooking authentic Italian food.

It has 325 recipes and 1500 specially commissioned colour photographs, and forms a great cook's culinary tour of Italy's regions, including: Lombardy; Piedmont; Liguria; Emilia-Romagna; Veneto; Tuscany; Umbria; Sardinia; Campania; Sicily; Puglia; Basilicata; and Calabria.

An extensive introduction examines in detail the history and traditions of classic Italian cooking, the ingredients and how to prepare and use them.

This large deluxe hardback is the first time Valentina's prestigious Italian regional series has been published together, in a newly designed single compendium volume, with new additional recipes, updated dishes and special photographs.
