"My real love of cooking started when I left home. This is where I had the opportunity to explore in my own kitchen and create something special. Leading up to this, I was always surrounded by food – big families, European background. An abundance of people always meant an abundance of food. Little did I know my appreciation for food would soon turn into a love affair.
This book is merely a guide to give you the basic tools and knowledge to understand the connection between ingredients and flavours. This is my way of cooking, and I only aim to show you the way I learnt to love it. If I can provide you with only a small percentage of inspiration in the kitchen, then in my eyes, I have won."
The Table of Us is big-hearted, wholesome and uncomplicated. It captures the true essence of the Italian culture far beyond the recipe pages with images representing the beauty of the country’s architecture along with personal memories to accompany.
