Simply Italian: Cooking at Home with the Chiappa Sisters

Written by

Michaela, Emanuela and Romina Chiappa


24 April 2014

The Chiappa sisters grew up in Wales in the heart of a close-knit Italian community where food was always at the centre of family and social gatherings. Whether searching for porcini in the hills near their parents’ home, making pasta with the whole family, or sharing food at the annual Welsh-Italian summer picnic, they have been immersed in the Italian way of cooking all their lives.

Here they share their cherished family recipes, including all the pasta dishes featured in their Channel 4 series. From snacks, soups and salads, to mains, side dishes and desserts, this is good, simple, fresh Italian food.
