Following her hugely popular RTE TV series, Catherine's Italian Kitchen, and her latest show, Catherine's Roman Holiday, Catherine Fulvio presents her personal collection of recipes to brighten up Irish kitchens with delicious flavours of Italy.
This wonderful selection of vibrant recipes, influenced by Catherine's long summers spent at her home in Sicily, have been gathered from Italian friends and her husband's family in Sicily and Rome, and perfected at her Wicklow cookery school.
With over 100 dishes for all levels of cooks, including familiar recipes with a twist - pizzas, pastas and risotto - as well as the unfamiliar - homemade limoncello, a traditional lemon liqueur, or Stromboli, a mouth-watering bread filled with mozzarella and pancetta, from the volcanic island off the coast of Sicily. So, expect the passion of Sicilian cooking, the heartiness of Roman fare, along with tasty treats from Tuscany, Naples and Venice.
Catherine's infectious enthusiasm for food pervades every recipe as she leads you through your Italian cooking experience. Featuring photography of spectacular Sicilian and Roman scenery taken from the TV series, this is truly Italian food for an Irish kitchen. Buon Appetito!
