Notes from a Small Kitchen Island

Over 80 delicious Italian recipes inspired by the amazing women in Gino’s life.

‘People have this idea that in every Italian family there are secret recipes that get passed down the generations. And it’s 100 per cent true! This book is my way of celebrating the amazing women in all our families. I want to show my love and appreciation for everything they have done for me.’

Drawing on the wisdom of his late mother, his fifteen bossy aunties, and a whole nation of home-cooking nonnas, Gino shares the secrets to making the very best version of much-loved Italian classics. Recipes include: grilled scallops with parsley and hazelnut butter, oozing baked risotto, slow-cooked pork shoulder with super-crispy crackling, and biscoff and espresso cheesecake.

With over 80 recipes for the ultimate Italian classics, ranging from quick weeknight meals to classic blowouts, this is Gino’s most iconic book yet.
