You may remember a while ago I reviewed Scala’s Pestos, well they have recently launched a new cookbook in partnership with Lawrence Dallaglio called “My Italian Family Cookbook”. Now being a huge lover of Italian food I was not going to turn down the opportunity to check this book out!
The book iteself covers light bites, suppers, food for friends, special occasions and some simply stunning desserts!
One thing I really liked was that the book is filled with pictures of Lawrence with his son, father and family in the kitchen cooking. It really is a family affair.
The recipies are also easy to follow and clearly detail how long it will take to prep and cook, although my prep time for recipies is always double! 😉 It also clearly shows how many people the dish will serve so no guess work required!
I found the dishes to be quite generous in their portion sizes as well as extremely flavoursome and rather delicious! I loved the range on offer and as a vegetarian I found plenty of dishes which were either suitable or easy to adapt without a great deal of diffculty, this can sometimes be a downside when you get a “celebrity” cookbook and not a dedicated vegetarian cookbook but this certainly wasn’t a problem with this book!
My Italian Family Cookbook is available from Amazon for £11.58
If your a lover of Italian food and like simply easy recipes then definitely check this book out!
