Devour Italy with Jamie's new issue
Pizza, pasta, travel, good times & fabulous family food… it has to be the bumper Italian issue of Jamie Oliver's beautiful food magazine, out now
"The fact that each year we dedicate an entire issue to this wonderful country just goes to show how adored Italian cuisine is around the world," writes Jamie Oliver. "This year we're not holding back. We have loads of brilliant recipes and stories that celebrate beautiful Italian ingredients. I'm bigging up pizza with a bunch of gorgeous recipes, while Gennaro – who, of course, had to be at the heart of the issue – has some knockout food from his hometown of Minori on the Amalfi coast."
That's only the start. There's a focus on stuffed pastas, full of tempting recipes for conchiglie, cannelloni & more. Our guide to basil celebrates this most evocative herb with dishes such as stuffed lamb shoulder and peach & basil lemonade. The feature on lemon desserts includes wonderful recipes from lemon & pistachio cannoli to a showstopping lemon & pine nut tart. And don't miss the magnificent marbled ricotta tiramisu in our piece on gluten-free pastas, pizzas & puddings.
Add to this an insider's guide to the foodie city of Modena, childhood favourite recipes from Italian chefs including Antonio Carluccio and Giorgio Locatelli, and 25 pages of how-tos, tips, techniques and simple midweek meals in our super-practical Guide section, and you have a tantalising taste of 'il Bel Paese'.
