Veneto: Recipes from an Italian Country Kitchen by Valeria Necchio is the debut cookbook from the voice behind the beautiful blog, Life Love Food.

Food, however, didn't become an integral part of her life until the age of 22 when she decided to switch her course of study and enrolled at the University of Gastronomic Sciences. It was here that she met her husband, Jesse (from the middle of nowhere Illinois - just like myself). The pair now live in London and travel the world taking striking photographs, eating lovely food and enjoying life.
