Easy Italian-Inspired Recipes
by Nigella Lawson

Hardcover, 288 pages

I live for each new Nigella Lawson cookbook. Not only are they stunningly photographed and put together (much like Nigella herself), and have the most delicious recipes, but they are a joy to read cover to cover. Nigella's voice comes through in its characteristic intelligent/wry/flirty purr and you feel like she is talking to you directly.

Hers are the kind of cookbooks you want to read like novels, 
as well as cook from! 

Nigellissima celebrates Nigella's love for Italian cooking with 120 simple but delicious recipes that you can make any night of the week.

Nigella was still in her teens when she ventured off to Italy and learned to cook like an Italian. It is still her favourite of all the world cuisines and lends itself wonderfully to no-fuss recipes that centre around quality ingredients.

She shows you how to stock your pantry to complement your fresh bought groceries to make the most of your cooking on a busy schedule.

Contents Include:
  • Introduction
  • Pasta
  • Meat, Fish & Fowl
  • Vegetables & Sides
  • Sweet Things
  • An Italian-Inspired Christmas

Nigella always wanted to be Italian when she grew up, and so do I. I guess cooking Italian is the closest I will get!
