*As featured in a BBC documentary* Born in Milan, Anna del Conte grew up in Italy in a gentler time. When war came to Italy everything changed: her family had to abandon their apartment and the city for the countryside, where the peasants still ate well, but life was dangerous... As a teenager, Anna became used to throwing herself into a ditch as the strafing planes flew over, and was imprisoned, twice. Her story is informed and enlivened by the food and memories of her native land - from lemon granita to wartime risotto with nettles, from vitello tonnato to horsemeat roll, from pastas to porcini. Anna arrived in England in 1949 to a culinary wasteland. She married an Englishman and stayed on, and while bringing up her children, she wrote books which inspired a new generation of cooks. This is a memoir of a life seen through food - each chapter rounded off with mouthwatering recipes.

'I get fed up with the number of cookbooks that promise quick and easy meals, those that promise a three-course dinner that can be knocked up in thirty minutes. Most cooking, and certainly most enjoyable cooking, takes a little longer. I can knock something up in a hurry if I have to – there are plenty of quick and easy recipes in this book – but that ability was a long time in the acquisition, and I still prefer to take my time, in order to do it better than I did it last time.' These recipes and essays, first published in the Financial Times, are a distillation of Rowley Leigh’s forty years as both a professional chef and a home cook. They detail with precision and wit how to cook and enjoy both unusual and familiar ingredients through the seasons. With Leigh’s succinct wine recommendations and over 120 recipes, this is a book to get messy with overuse in the kitchen and to pore over in an armchair with a glass of the author’s beloved Riesling close to hand.

*As featured in a BBC documentary* Coco is Anna Del Conte's 12-year-old granddaughter and her tireless helper in the kitchen. From a very early age, Coco showed an interest in food and cooking - Anna taught her to smell and taste food, and soon enough Coco was able to start helping, progressing from decorating cakes to making pasta to conjuring up her favourite tagines. Taking us from the simple dishes of the early stages, through to more complex cooking for older children - by way of meatballs, Coco's first biscuits, lamb with couscous and sweet ricotta pancakes - and illustrated with beautiful photographs, Anna Del Conte brings us the best of all the recipes they have cooked together. In a relaxed, informal style, she shows how to teach children the importance of seasonal food, how to introduce new skills and techniques, and how to choose the best ingredients. But Cooking with Coco is also an inspirational reminder of how much fun families can have together in the kitchen. Written by an internationally renowned cook, food writer and grandmother, for all the eager - and sometimes mischievous - faces around her table, Cooking with Coco is a book for anyone who wants to introduce children to simple, healthy and delicious cooking and the joy and satisfaction of making it themselves.

When Jill and her family moved to Italy she expected life to change but she had no idea how massive that change would be. Shortly after the move, she discovered her husband had been having an affair and had no intentions of staying in Italy. Despite being in a foreign country with no income, limited language skills, a house that needed rebuilding and three young children to care for, she never once considered returning to the UK. With strength and determination she accepted any challenge, dismantling a derelict house to ground level, digging out a three metre deep well with her hands to get free water and overcoming her fear of the chainsaw to cut the winter wood. When there was very little money for food she made risotto with nettles collected from the roadside. She overcame many problems learned new skills and discovered that money is not important, and the only things in life that matters are health, happiness and her children. Jill's story is delivered with an ever present hint of humour, because, she says, "Without laughter life wouldn't be funny!"

Cadogan's original and best-selling three-cities guide is now in its fourth edition--and travel companies consistently cite this combination as their most sought-after Italian tour. These are three remarkable cities, with three remarkable stories to tell. Rome went out and conquered the world, and in its retirement came back to remake itself as Europe's most ornate capital. Venice built itself up from a Dark Age swamp to become a fairy city of canals. Florence built its empire on finance and wool, and lavished the profits on art and science. Cadogan explores their three very different characters: stately Rome, with its Coliseum and the Sistine Chapel; dreamy Venice, and the eternal romance of a gondola ride along its canals; and Florence, bursting with more paintings, sculptures, and monuments than anywhere else in Italy. They all combine to offer a sublime introduction to the country, or a perfect multi-center trip for travelers with limited time. Cadogan's essential guide uncovers the divine, the great, and the quirky in each city. Special features includes: *Discerning listings: top shops and local markets, 200 places to sample the best of Italian cuisine, and 120 carefully chosen hotels and apartments *Color photography captures the grandeur and vivacity of these ancient cities *Easy guidance through the streets and sights with detailed maps and site plans
