Italian cuisine is all about exploring the seasonal delights of the different regions, each offering their own culinary specialties.
International chef, Luca Ciano, has brought together the freshest, in-season produce to create signature Italian dishes that indulge the sensations.
Light meals with tomato and basil for those hot summer days, heart-warming, classic Italian dishes using fennel and olives in winter, the tastes of mushrooms and chestnuts in autumn, and the freshness of asparagus and artichokes in spring, be inspired by the recipes with these and many other seasonal ingredients that will bring a fresh excitement to your cooking.
