You are invited to meet Silvia Colloca when she introduces her new book La Dolce Vita.
In La Dolce Vita, Italian born Silvia Colloca responds to the misconception that Italian food is unhealthy with her honest, authentic guide to 'the sweet life'.
Italians, contrary to popular belief, do not gorge on spaghetti carbonara and multiple bottles of wine every day. Italian home cooking is the basis of the globally researched and much proclaimed Mediterranean diet, focusing on fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes and fish rather than lots of dairy, meat, animal fats and sugars.
Whether your dinner guests are vegan, vegetarin, gluten-, grain- egg- and dairy free, La Dolce Vita has a selections of delicious recipes that will solve all catering requirements without requiring fiddly extras.
Food gives us occasions to gather, nurture, entertain nd celebrate life - and it can be so easy with the flexibility of Itlaian cuisine.
Silvia will soon appear in her series Silvia's Italian Table to be shown on ABC TV.
