Instant Italian Inspiration from bestselling food writer Nigella Lawson

Nigella’s mouthwatering dishes have their roots in tradition but take us into fresh territory; knowledge worn light of touch but full on taste. While she stays true to the spirit of Italian cooking, her recipes are always quick and easy, designed to elevate everyday eating into no-fuss feasts for those days when we need to get supper on the table pronto.

Italian food now plays a familiar role in our everyday eating but Nigellissima goes beyond Bolognese to bring to our table 120 inspired recipes – from the crustless Meatzza to Long Fusilli with a no-cook Sicilian sauce (see jacket illustration), Italian Roast Chicken with Peppers and Olives to a Venetian Stew and a One-Step No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream -- in a round-Italy culinary quick cook’s tour that culminates in a festive chapter of party food, with an Italian-inspired Christmas spread as its celebratory centrepiece.

Nigella’s gastronomic heart is in Italy and in Nigellissima she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, the simplicity and the directness of Italian cooking, illustrated here with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight (and accompanied by a new BBC TV series).

          This has made a fun addition to my already groaning shelves, laden as they are with Lawson, Kiros and good old Jamie.. Nigella just hits the spot with my ethnically diverse family every time. She writes and presents intelligently, charmingly and always informatively. I can excuse the shiny cover.. the deliciousness within makes up for it.

            I love the intro before every recipe, Nigella talks to us, about the recipe and explains certain techniques, and what to look out for and any hints that she has to share.It's like a friend has written it to me.
            Love the book.

            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. Nigella's gastronomic heart is in Italy, and in this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist. Illustrated with gorgeous photographs to instruct and delight Nigellissima is accompanied by a major new BBC TV series.
