'It wouldn't be a home for me without her books on the shelves' - Nigella Lawson 'Anna Del Conte is a food writer you'd like to have with you in the kitchen...like all of her cookbooks, this is a classic.'- The Independent cookbooks of 2018 roundup 'The doyenne of Italian cookery - Del Conte has published some of the most influential books on the subject' - Waitrose Weekend A brand new collection of recipes from Anna Del Conte that make vegetables the star of the show. Organised in an A-Z format from asparago to zucchina, Anna presents classic dishes alongside her own personalised (many previously unpublished) recipes created throughout her years as a writer. These range from classic recipes to more adventurous dishes including insalata caprese, parmigiana di melanzane, courgette fritters and squash ravioli with sage butter. Whilst Anna embraces classic Italian flavours, she ensures that the vegetable in the dish is at the heart of each recipe in her signature style. This is a celebration of vegetables that praises the flavour and texture of each individual root, squash, herb and pulse to teach a new generation of cooks how to enjoy fresh seasonal produce at any time of year.
