Nigellissima : Instand Italian Inspiration
Nigellissima takes inspiration from Italian cooking to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate, pronto. At the heart of Italian cookery lies a celebration of food that is fresh, tasty and unpretentious; Nigella Lawson reflects this in recipes that are simple and speedy, elevating everyday eating into no-fuss feasts. Italian food has colonised the world. Nigellissima shows us how and why in over 100 delicious dishes - from telephone-cord pasta with Sicilian pesto to the crustless Meatzza, from Sardinian couscous to Venetian stew, from penne to papardelle, from ragu to risotto, from Italian apple pie and no-churn ices to panna cotta and sambuca kisses - in a round-Italy quickstep that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas feast as its mouthwatering centrepiece. From the traditional to the unfamiliar, here are recipes to excite the taste buds and the imagination, without stressing the cook.

Our customer reviews
It's a glossy book and the photography is clever and flattering. But....I'm not sure that a serious lover of Italian food or cooking would get much out of it. If you want beautiful Italian food, clear recipes, a passion for ingredients and less self-absorption, try Antonio Carluccio, Gennaro Contaldo or Jamie Oliver.show moreby Jennifer Clews
