Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Basic pizza dough

    • saarwouters on April 09, 2018

      Great and foolproof recipe for pizza dough. In our case it made 2 pizza's. (Maybe if you roll it out even thinner you could make 4 as the recipe states?)

  • Mozzarella, roasted capsicum and caper pizza

    • saarwouters on April 09, 2018

      This was the first pizza we tried on our new pizza stone and it was absolutely delicious! We did need double the amount of mozzarella to make 2 pizza's.

  • Onion and goat's cheese frittata

    • saarwouters on October 22, 2017

      Good lunch recipe. Use a large frying pan. I used a small one, and the egg was still runny, while the bottom was getting black...

  • Tomato and mozzarella gnocchi bake

    • Melanie on September 13, 2014

      Nothing amazing about this recipe but it worked very well for a quick work night dinner (comfort food). Suggest serving with salad to make sure this stretches to 4 adult serves.

Publishers Text

With more than 100 original recipes, BILL'S ITALIAN takes inspiration from the diversity of Italian regional food to make the most of fresh seasonal produce. Concentrating on simple, flavoursome dishes with short ingredient lists and uncomplicated methods, the recipes in this book are divided by solution-driven chapters that embody Bill's casual cooking and his spirit of generosity and sharing--approaches that perfectly reflect the Italian lifestyle. "As our pace of life gets ever faster and cooking for friends and family takes on the same hectic anxiety, why is it that a holiday in Italy sends me home optimistic, revitalised and striving to be a 'little bit more Italian'? It can't be simply the great coffee (although that's certainly revitalising), the crisp pizza and fritto misto, or the antipasto platters shared under wide blue skies...There is something about the joyfully uncompromising Italian lifestyle, the stubborn refusal to hurry (over lunch, or to catch the autobus), and the sacrosanct importance of sitting down to dine with family that I always resolve to bring home to my kitchen.

(And, of course, the golden rule of travel applies: never mention politics, money or sport. Stick to food -- in Italy it's always a winner.)" Bill Granger
