In her third cookbook Silvia embraces the Mediterranean food she grew up with, taking us far beyond the heavy pasta dishes and rich cakes that Italian cuisine is often (mistakenly) associated with. Italian home cooks are more likely to cook simply, allowing fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes and fish to shine, with sparing use of dairy, meat, animal fats and sugars.
Food lover Silvia Colloca is a woman of many talents- professional
actress and opera singer, published author, blogger and sensational
cook. After spending her childhood in the kitchens of her mother
and grandmothers, Silvia absorbed much of their Italian culinary
heritage. Since moving to Australia several years ago, Silvia has
kneaded, beaten, rolled, chopped and pounded her way to an
authentic Italian identity in her Sydney kitchen. Silvia and her
husband Richard Roxburgh have two young sons, Raphael and Miro.
Silvia's first cookbook, Silvia's Cucina, was published in
2013, and her second book, Made in Italy with Silvia
Colloca, published in 2014, in conjunction with her debut
television series of the same name.
"A great cookbook full of healthy, nutritious Italian recipes."
