    Gennaros Limoni
    ISBN: 9781911663188
    Publication date: 01/10/2021

    Ask a foodie about the Amalfi Coast and lemons immediately spring to mind. The sweet, aromatic, large and thick-skinned Sfusato Amalfitano is the extraordinary and delectable citrus fruit which Gennaro Contaldo grew up with.

    Lemons were and still are a part of daily life for locals of the Amalfi Coast, and, when Gennaro came to the UK over 40 years ago he continued this tradition. From a sliver of zest in his morning espresso to helping with minor ailments and even household chores, lemons have a wealth of uses.

    No part of the lemon is wasted - flesh, pith and skin are chopped into salads, juice is drizzled over meat, fish and veggies, while the aromatic zest adds a complexity to a dish's flavour. Even the leaves are used to wrap meat, fish and cheese for extra flavour, or finely chopped and made into a tea infusion.

    Lemons can cleanse, refresh, preserve, 'cook' and add a vibrant flavour to dishes as giving colour and an uplifting aroma. From Ravioli with Ricotta, Lemon and Mint, and Sicilian Chicken Involtini, to Lemon Biscuits, and Coffee and Lemon Semi-freddo, this is not only a beautiful and inspiring homage to the most revered of fruit but Gennaro's most inspirational book to date.

  • Growing Food the Italian Way
    Growing Food the Italian Way
    ISBN: 9781743538968
    Publication date: 08/08/2017

    In mid-2014, passionate grower and gardening author Fabian Capomolla decided to up stumps and move to Italy for a year with his young family in tow. From his time living in Lucca, and from watching as a child his nonno grow his own food, Fabian discovered that growing food the Italian way is defined by how they approach the task: with simplicity and without overcomplicating it.

    This book will show you - in simple, Italian-style terms! - how to set up and maintain your veggie patch, and the extensive A-Z plant guide will help you decide what to grow in it. There's a chapter on problems you might encounter and remedies to fix them, along with handy tips scattered throughout. Some of these tips have been expanded into easy-to-follow activities like how to build your own barbecue or make your own insect repellent. You'll also find a selection of simple and delicious recipes so you can cook just like Nonna, and a glossary to help decode common gardening terms.

    In Italy the most important things are family and food. Growing your own food is about providing for yourself and your family. It is a celebration of food, which is a celebration of life. To grow the Italian way is to enjoy life. Nothing else really matters. Basta!

    AUTHOR INFORMATION

    Starting off in advertising before taking the leap to fulfil his dream of helping people grow food, Fabian Capomolla co-founded Little Veggie Patch Co. and now has his own completely edible backyard in Melbourne.

    Delve into the art of loving and living in every moment.

    'Italian' is as evocative a word as any, but what does it really mean? The answer is a lifestyle that many envy, from one of the world's most beloved countries - aperitifs and the art of drinking coffee. Feast days and a quiet August. Cities steeped in history, where the past is always present and countless style and fashion icons reside. In a country where wine is produced in every region, food is deeply entrenched in tradition, and some of the world's greatest artists, composers, and thinkers have lived, passion is everywhere and la dolce vita thrives.

    This book is a celebration of what it means to be from Italy - an education in drinking to savour the moment, travelling indulgently, and dolce far niente - the sweetness of doing nothing. From the innovation of Italian fashion and design, the golden age of its cinema, the Roman Empire's cultural echoes, and some very good espresso, take a dip into the Italian psyche and learn to eat, love, dress, think, and have fun as only Italia can.
