About the Book
The Pornanino Olive Oil Cookbook is a collection of family recipes from all over Italy. What makes them both healthy and delicious is that magical ingredient the ancients called "green gold". Extra virgin olive oil is one of nature's most precious gifts and one of the reasons why Mediterranean peoples live longer, healthier lives. So dive in and discover how fun, quick and easy Italian cooking can be - and surprisingly light, too, as most recipes have been revised in order to provide the perfect balance between taste and calories. Enjoy!
Reading, cooking and travelling have all been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Writing came much later, after I'd been a travel agent (sort of) for 10 years and a free-lance cook for another 3. But then it hit like a ton of bricks! I've been doing it non-stop since 2000, authoring and script-writing a wonderful adventure travel series for the Italian state television. I also have the daring (and the nerve) to write an English-language newsletter to promote some of the best Italian extra virgin olive oil on the market - it really is outstanding! Last but not least, I'm launching a deluxe B&B in Milano and having fun writing cook-books.
