Italian home cooks are more likely to cook simply, allowing fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes and fish to shine, with sparing use of dairy, meat, animal fats and sugars. The recipes are authentic and nutritious, catering to those with vegan, vegetarian, gluten-, grain-, egg- and dairy-free dietary preferences. The perfect way to love and nurture your favourite people, and celebrate the sweet life together.
