A celebration of the incredible breadth and hard work of the Italians who came and settled in Australia and have kept their food traditions intact. Travel again with Maeve O'Meara and legendary Melbourne chef Guy Grossi as they spend time with Australia's top Italian chefs and producers. Italian Food Safari introduces you to the concrete backyards full of abundant tomato and basil plants, the cosy home kitchens where masterpieces are whipped up, the elegant restaurants filled with delicious cooking aromas, the specialist providores and extensive delis, bakeries, cheese-makers and pasticcerias. Some of the world's most celebrated Italian culinary masterpieces feature alongside beautiful rustic family favourites. Offering simple foolproof recipes that anyone can cook at home, it's a delicious journey into Italy making discoveries that will inspire any cook. In addition, Guy Grossi shares some of his family's most revered recipes for traditional favourites from the north to the south of Italy.
