'I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of foodies: my brother is a chef, my mum is a great cook, and my dad is a wonderful eater! No wonder I have such a passion for the food of my homeland.'

In her second cookbook, Italian-born Silvia Colloca returns to the villages where she spent her childhood, in the regions of Abruzzo, Marche and Molise. Reuniting with family and close friends, Silvia celebrates the incredible array of fresh produce, its marked regional variations, and how this affects the local cuisine.

With her trademark warmth and good humour, Silvia shares family stories and recipes that are close to her heart, and shows how simply a handful of seasonal ingredients can be transformed into something truly exceptional, including homemade ricotta, roast potatoes with bay leaves and cured pork cheek, handmade noodles with monkfish ragu, wine-drenched peaches with mascarpone cream and the intriguing-sounding 'bear's cake'!

About the Author

Food lover Silvia Colloca is a woman of many talents: professional actress, trained opera singer, blogger and sensational cook. After spending her childhood in the kitchens of her mother and grandmothers, Silvia absorbed much of their Italian culinary heritage. Since moving to Australia eight years ago, Silvia has kneaded, beaten, rolled, chopped and pounded her way to an authentic Italian identity in her Sydney kitchen. Silvia is married to actor Richard Roxburgh and they have two sons, Raphael and Miro.

    A travelogue of escapism to rural Italy. Silvia brings her enthusiasm to her travels as well as the mouth watering dishes. An enjoyable book but a little impracticable for the kitchen table. The author is a most attractive lady but there does seem to be a great many photos of her as you turn the pages! I will be making some of the mealls often for entertaining.

                  Great recipes and lovely pictures of regions in Italy the recipes originated from. Nice to get some good home cooked recipes from traditional Italian homes.Having been to Italy both my husband and I enjoyed the TV series and got inspired by Silvia.
