Alastair Little's Italian Kitchen by Alastair Little

I think Sophie and I must be related!

She has the same taste buds and enthusiasm as I.

I love Sophie, good pedigree, we have her mum to thank for her insight to meditteranean cooking.

Worth buying.

Makes me smile to read it.

The book is no nonsense, this is how to do it, with recipes and techniques with a more professional approach, which educates which I find helpful.

Not pretentios, variety of recipes and will give you a chance to show off - with a change… Read more
