By Shirley Bradstock
The essence of Italian cooking is fresh food prepared simply, and the abundance of high-quality ingredients available in New Zealand make Italian-style cookery an appealing option. Today, there is also a wide range of imported Italian products, from pastas and cheeses to fine wines to enhance the authenticity of the dishes. This cookbook includes recipes for antipasti, soups and side dishes, rice, pastas and sauces, fish, meat, chicken and vegetable dishes, pizzas and desserts. It is aimed at New Zealand cooks wanting to produce appetizing Italian recipes using local ingredients. Shirley Bradstock is the author of "Mmm Muffins" and "The Pizza and Quiche Cookbook".
