Description

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.
