FRANCESCO MAZZEI, DELITALIA, MEZZO GIORNO, BBC, FRANCESCO BOOK Mezzogiorno is my first cookbook and it represents all I love about cooking. Recipes are drawn from the traditions of the southern Italian regions of Abruzzo, Molise, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia. Inspired by our family’s joy of sitting down around the table to reconnect daily, the book is divided into chapters based on the traditional format of an Italian meal. It is a culinary journey from antipasti, primi, secondi, vegetables all the way through to desserts with a section dedicated to sauces and bread.

The style of cooking is rooted in ‘peasant cooking’, the art of transforming humble ingredients into more than the sum of their parts to create a flavoursome meal. Rustic and hearty but also light and fresh, ideal for the long, balmy Italian summers.

I hope you will enjoy reading this collection of recipes as much as I enjoyed writing it. Buon appetito!
