The essence of Italian food, like Nigella’s style of cooking, is simplicity and informality. In her new series, Nigellissima, she shows how easy it is to bring the spirit of Italy into the kitchen and onto the plate using ingredients available in any supermarket.
Nigella Lawson brings her passion for Italy and Italian cooking to TLN this fall. In her new series Nigellisima, she creates mouthwatering dishes that have their roots in tradition but take us into fresh territory; light of touch but bursting full of taste.While Nigellissima is true to the spirit of Italian cooking, the recipes are always quick and easy, designed to elevate everyday eating into no-fuss feasts for those days when supper needs to be on the table pronto.
Nigella Lawson continues to share her passion for creating mouthwatering Italian food. Inspired by a scribbled note she once found in an old Italian kitchen, Nigella starts with her take on the classic light and sunny yoghurt pot cake. Nigella's niece and nephew are recruited to make - and enjoy - a shortcut sausage meatball supper, while a girls' night in sees Nigella rustling up a super quick dish of squid and prawns with marjoram and chilli. The evening ends with Nigella's tiramisini - a lighter, quicker version of traditional tiramisu.
Nigella Lawson continues to share her passion for creating mouthwatering Italian food, treating her supper guests to a sumptuous feast of lamb chops with mint, chilli and golden potatoes, served alongside roasted red onions with fennel and basil. Dessert is a true Anglo-Italian affair with a ruby red plum and amaretti crumble. There is also Nigella's easy no-stir farro risotto with mushrooms, and chocolate pasta with a dark butterscotch sauce - a perfect supper for those nights when you can't decide if you're in the mood for savoury or sweet.
