Recipes From an Italian Summer

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

Summer is around the corner. And that means lots to look forward to: vacations on the beach or countryside, lounging and relaxing, and of course, wining and dining!

Phaidon’s latest cookbook Recipes from an Italian Summer is the perfect summer cooking companion with simple recipes for Italian dishes with fresh ingredients. A collection of Italian recipes that utilize fruits and vegetables of the season, the chapters are organized by our summer eating habits: picnics, salads, barbeques, light lunches and suppers, summer entertaining, desserts, and ice cream and drinks.

I’ve chosen three simple recipes from Recipes from an Italian Summer to show how easily you can use the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables available in the summer. Happy summer and happy eating!
