Manuela Darling-Gansser’s journey across Italy reveals authentic recipes made from ingredients according to the seasons. Like its landscape, Italy’s food is of enormous variety, changing greatly with the seasons and places. Marvellous ingredients, such as local vegetables and fruits, fresh herbs, rich spices, and exquisite cheeses are magically combined to produce memorable pastas – from light and fresh to hearty, stylish simple fish and meat dishes, and desserts that just have to be tried.
Drawn from travels to Costa Smeralda, Lugarno, Piemonte, the Swiss Alps and Sicily, Manuela’s recipes are a collection of her favourites from each of these facinating places. Divided into four chapters: Spring, Summer, Autumn and winter, this collection of seasonal recipes is sure to become a kitchen favourite.
