A Table in Venice by Skye McAlpine

Regular price £26.00 Sale

With her simple, approachable Italian recipes and charming photography, Skye McAlpine offers an insider's perspective on Venetian home cooking.

All of the recipes in A Table in Venice are typical of Skye's cooking style: simple, fresh, colourful and always plentiful, whether it's quick-to-assemble cicheti - the small plates accompanying an afternoon spritz or dinner party Prosecco - or a hearty serving of risotto topped with an extra grating of Parmesan.

With many recipes featuring a short list of ingredients these are dishes for everyone to make and enjoy, from Almond Paste Croissants and Chocolate and Amaretti Custard to Tagliolini with Prawns, Courgettes and Saffron and Roast Duck Legs with Plums.

Hundreds of thousands of tourists pass through the city of Venice each year, eat at trattorie, and leave having dined in Venice, but not having eaten well. It is the food cooked in homes and made with local ingredients, the recipes passed down through generations that is real Venetian food. So sit down to a sumptuous spread of freshly baked pastries, tuck into a comforting Venetian dinner with friends and family, or discover the secrets of Venice from the comfort of your armchair.

'It is a beautifully evocative book, offering a delicious stroll through the city' Nigella Lawson

'A real and rare gem, this is the must-have book on Venice and it's cooking' Anna del Conte
