Naturally Vegetarian : Recipes & Stories from My Italian Family Farm

Author(s): Valentina Solfrini

Cooking & Food

Solfrini grew up eating fresh, local, seasonal foods, but when she moved to New York City to study design, she quickly felt the damaging effects that came with eating a new diet filled with processed foods, too much meat, and too few vegetables. Returning to Italy, she embraced the seasonal, vegetable-friendly foods and, after eliminating meat from her diet, felt better than ever. Naturally Vegetarian is a celebration of Italy's colours, smells, and flavours and will show readers a new side to the traditional Italian kitchen.
