The doyenne of authentic Italian cuisine, Anna Del Conte is our undisputed authority on Italian cooking and a true storyteller. This evening promises tales of family, history and ingredients with lots of humour and the message that simplicity is everything.
We will celebrate the publication of a new modern classic, Anna Del Conte on Pasta. Her famous book, Portrait of Pasta has been updated with new recipes and illustrations to make it into a charming collectors edition. ‘The book that actually changed the way the English thought about Italian cooking… and the instrumental force in leading us from the land of spag bol, macaroni cheese and tinned ravioli’. Nigella Lawson.
