[Thoughts on the Table – 73] Introducing Francesca Montillo’s new paperback – The 5-ingredient Italian Cookbook

Francesca Montillo

In my chat with Francesca Montillo back in 2016, we talked about her cooking classes and culinary tours of Italy. In today’s episode, Francesca introduces her first cookbook which stems from her experience as a cooking instructor. The 5-ingredient Italian Cookbook is an overview of traditional Italian cooking with 101 regional classics described step-by-step.

During the episode, Francesca shares a behind-the-scenes on the making of the book, from the choice o the recipes to the use of a test kitchen to validate them and photograph the resulting dishes.

You can buy Francesca’s cookbook on Amazon and follow her at Lazy Italian Culinary Adventures as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
