Gennaro shows that good family cooking doesn’t have to be complicated. Whether you’re looking for a soup, a salad, a quick pasta dish, a slow-cooked Sunday lunch or something for a special occasion, this book has the recipes for you. 

Everyday dishes such as Trofie pasta with green beans and basil, Ricotta dumplings and Beetroot salad sit alongside special occasion meals such as Rack of lamb with artichokes, Roast chicken with lemon and herbs and Homemade ravioli.

There are dishes for all ages, with plenty of recipes for kids, including pizzas and simple pasta dishes, and lots of ideas for getting the children involved with the cooking. Gorgeous desserts such as Summer fruit jellies, Coffee meringues and a delicious trifle, and traditional Italian preserves such as Preserved peaches and Small filled peppers make this book irresistible.
