Product Description

In Light of Lucia the energetic and passionate Luciana Sampogna, owner of the popular cooking school Cucina Italiana, shares the rites of passage of the Italian woman from childhood to motherhood, mapped by Italian tradition, superstition and celebration through food. Learn why flour is 'god' and be swept away by the romance of eating pizza on the back of a Vespa with your bello. This is Italian cooking from the heart.

With 120 proven recipes from a cooking maestra, including the best fresh pasta recipe this side of Italy, fried prawns with salsa verde, and simply irresistible Ricotta fritters, Luciana caters for all tastes and levels of cooking experience. But this is more than a cookbook, it's the story of every Italian woman's life journey and the food that accompanies it.

Light of Lucia comprises a stunning mix of recipes, photography, illustrations, nostalgic black and white family portraits and inspiring words, bringing Italian food and culture to life.

About The Author: Luciana Sampogna has run the Cucina Italiana cooking school for the past 10 years, the last five in Sydney. She was trained under Sorelle Simili who previously worked with the renowned Italian cookbook author Marcella Hazan and the 85-year-old artisanal bakers, the Simili sisters.

As reviewed by Toni Whitmont in the April, 2010 Booktopia Buzz.

Luciana runs Cucina Italiana, a cooking school, from her home in Sydney and having made the tortellini under her instruction from scratch, I am a complete convert. So much so in fact, that I asked Luciana to make a video exclusively for Booktopia customers so that you too could share her full and flavoursome world.

Light of Lucia is truly a wonderful cookbook with an emphasis on home cooking, recipes put together with love and with an eye to all the occasions that make Italian culture the treasure trove of riches that it is.
