“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 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.
