Mariangela di Fiore spent all her summers with her grandparents in Naples, where her granny taught her real Italian cooking.
In this book you will find a wealth of good recipes from Granny's kitchen, combined with stories from Mariangela's childhood in Naples. We hear about fresh fish kept swimming in the bath-tub right until they were prepared, Saints Day celebrations in the town and the story of the Mafia boss who revealed his hiding place because he bought expensive fish at the market.
The book is divided by different themes with corresponding recipes: Seafood (Granny's spaghetti with cockles, devilish king prawns, stuffed squid); The poor man's kitchen (pasta with garlic, stuffed tomatoes, oven-baked artichokes); A taste of summer (bruschetta, pennine with fresh tomato sauce, rice salad); Sweets (sfogliatelle, torta caprese); A day at the beach (bread roll with aubergine and tomato, squash with mint and vinegar dressing); last but not least: wonderful recipes for snacks, pizza, antipasti, supper and fish.
Enjoy the tastes and smells and cook real Italian food, seasoned with delightful stories.
