Fiori di Zucca: Recipes and Memories from My Family's Kitchen Table
# UK6122 Hardcover, 256 pages; 2013
As a food writer and chef, Valentina Harris knows a thing or two about good food. But her fondest culinary memories and the foundation of her own impressive cooking skills were shaped in her family's Italian kitchen, where an impressive array of world cuisines - Harris is the child of an Anglo/Irish Dutch father and a Chinese-born Italian/ Belgian mother - blended together. As a result, Fiori di Zucca is half cookbook, half family memoir, in which 85 recipes from 10 countries - including Classic Milanese Risotto (Italy), Lavender Scones (England), Cheese Soufflé (France), and Lychee Sorbet (China) - are served up alongside wonderful tales of Harris's Italian childhood, her globe-trotting ancestors, and the delicious meals that nourished them all.
