Description

Welcome to the Tyrrhenian Sea, home to la dolce vita, sun-drenched islands and seaside towns where even the simplest trattoria has an effortless glamour. Following on from the success of her first book, A House Party in Tuscany, food writer Amber Guinness travels from the Tuscan coast down through Lazio and Campania via Naples and the Amalfi Coast and on to northern Sicily in her new book Italian Coastal. Along the way, Amber delves into the history, stories and flavours that have come home to her kitchen and shaped her food philosophy.

Amber’s quest for maximum flavour with minimal effort shines through in sixty delicious and achievable recipes that will bring an authentic mouthful of coastal Italy to your table: crostini with ricotta and ‘nduja, zucchini and mint lasagne; tomato linguine with capers; seabass with pistachio and almonds; Neapolitan vinegary fried zucchini; potato and caper salad from Salina; raspberry tiramisu and the ultimate Amalfi lemon cream cake.

Inspired by the markets and food of summer holidays by the beach, Italian Coastal is a fusion of recipe book, travelogue, and memoir – with sumptuous food and travel photography throughout – that will transport readers to the sunny Mediterranean.
