Italian

Italy gave the world pizza and pasta and fortunately they didn't stop there. Feed a crowd in winter with chunky soups like minestrone and ribollita, try a big pan of creamy risotto studded with asparagus and peas to welcome spring, chicken in red wine and tomato cacciatore for an easy summer night, or grill fennel scented polpette and serve with white beans to take the chill from autumn. Desserts are a triumph and range from sweet fresh fruit ices to the creamy bliss of tiramisu.
