Cooking with Nonna by Giuseppe Federici

Who’s the author? Giuseppe Federici – also known as @sepps and @sepps_eats – is a food content creator with an engaged fanbase of over 500,000 followers on Instagram and over 300,000 on TikTok.

A second-generation British Italian cook who follows a vegan diet, Giuseppe’s platform is home to a plethora of videos featuring mouth-watering plant-based recipes, with plenty of appearances from his beloved Nonna. In 2023, he was named Digital Creator of the Year at the prestigious Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards.

What’s it about? As the title suggests, Cooking with Nonna is a celebration of rustic Italian and Sicilian food, informed by Giuseppe’s heritage and longstanding love of food in his family. What makes this cookbook truly unique, however, is that all 80 recipes are plant-based. Finding delicious vegan Italian recipes is an all-too common challenge, but Cooking with Nonna promises to change that.

Recipes we love: Classic Lasagna with homemade mince, Arancini della Nonna, Perfect Tomato Sauce, Pasta Aglio Olio e Peperoncino, Focaccia, Tiramisu, Coffee Granita and Biscotti.

Perfect for: Lovers of Italian food, vegan and plant-based cooks, or anyone looking for authentic home-cooked meals.
