If you're anything like us, you simply can't get enough of Silvia Colloca's cooking. We wouldn't miss an episode of Cook Like an Italian; it's a warm hug of a show that just keeps delivering the goods. Night after night we are tempted to exclusively cook Italian... and why not? Silvia showcases just how much variety there is in Italian cuisine and she makes it all feel very accessible.

Italian made simple

To add to the enjoyment, Silvia has a lovely new cookbook out that simplifies Italian cooking even further. In Simple Italian she shares the essential dishes and techniques that are the heart and soul of this exuberant country's cuisine. All the antipasto, gnocchi, pasta and rice dishes you could ever wish to eat, all presented in an straightforward way.

Here's a small taste of the recipes in Simple Italian.

Nonna Carla's oven-baked fennel

A testament to Northern Italian cooking, these fennel bulbs are baked in milk and butter for a tender, creamy vegetable, complete with a hearty sprinkle of cheese.

Olive oil mashed potatoes

I particularly love the grassy notes that olive oil adds to mashed potatoes, and often use a pungent Tuscan-style extra-virgin olive oil for added flavour.

Sweetness guaranteed

And did we mention the sweets?

It wouldn't be at all surprising to learn that Silvia excels at the sweet side of life. The book houses the kinds of sweet treats that everyday Italians make to celebrate and indulge. Simple cakes, biscuits and tarts that are pulled out of Italian home ovens on the daily.
