with Cav. Mary Contini

After her highly successful Dear Francesca, Mary Contini writes to her other daughter, Olivia, to tell the story of her great-grandparents, the Italian shepherds who emigrated to Edinburgh and then helped to transform Britain's food culture.

Sharing some of the recipes that they brought over, the tomatoes, the garlic, the sausage, the wine, this is a mouth-watering blend of family, food and culture.

'A charming story … she unravels the family history like a precious thread. Contini’s writing has a naturalness and honesty about it that brings a lump to the throat on occasion.' (Sunday Herald)
