If you are my FB friend you probabaly already know this, there has been quite an online celebration in the last few days!
After 13 years as pans and pots manager of my somewhat public kitchen, I am delighted to announce the publication of my cookbook entitled “A kitchen with a view. Seasonal recipes from Alla Madonna del Piatto cooking school”.
I have written this book to condense for you my knoweldge and food-related philosophy based on my quest to better eating and a lifetime of sharing my kitchen with people from all over the world plus 14 years as a professional cooking teacher.
I hope you will enjoy it and use it until it’s old and broken and covered in stains of delicious sauces.
Please see below a photo gallery and synopsys.
“Use good quality ingredients in simple combinations. Embrace the rhythm of the seasons. Respect the balance of flavors and textures.”
Applying these principles to traditional, home-style Italian cooking, Letizia Mattiacci has created a collection of over 60 family-friendly recipes from her farmhouse kitchen in the Umbrian mountains above Assisi. Detailed guides to techniques, the quality and choice of ingredients, are sprinkled with stories on local customs and lessons from life. A Kitchen With A View, is a first-hand account of life in the kitchen of a modern Italian family and could hardly be more authentic.
Recipes for classics like fettuccini with black truffle, join new interpretations of traditional dishes, such as the Pear-amisu. Letizia’s style of cooking is light, fresh and accessible to anyone who wishes to cook, and eat, like a true Italian.
After years of experimenting with new and healthy ingredients, Letizia takes you step-by-step to learn how to make, among many delicious recipes, perfect wholegrain cappelletti, gluten-free fresh pasta and crunchy bruschetta bread.
With beautiful photography of the Umbrian countryside and its enchanting hill-towns, a Kitchen With A View, will instantly transport you into the heart of rural Italy and its people.
