To eat at Maria Pia's celebrated trattoria in Wellington is to partake in a totally joyful eating experience. Maria Pia creates authentic Italian food, steeped in tradition, cooked and served with stylish exuberance. It is not surprising to know that she has been recognised by the Italian Government as one of the great Italian restaurateurs of the world. Drawing on the regional food of Puglia in Southern Italy, where she grew up, as well as Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany, Maria Pia's recipes are imbued with flavours born of an uncompromising respect for the food culture of Italy and the use of the highest quality ingredients. Beautifully photographed by Sal Criscillo, Mangiare Italiano abounds with passion and integrity.

About the Author
Maria Pia de Razza is a granddaughter of the Duke of Moriciano di Leuca. She was brought up by her grandmother in Lecce, where she was taught to make bread to accompany the regional cheeses, to roast vegetables in olive oil from the family farm, and how to make and cook pasta. Maria and her husband run Maria Pia's Trattoria in Wellington.
"To eat at Maria Pia's trattoria is to become a part of this woman's world; and to read her book is to feel the same thing has happened... A book for real Italian-food lovers." -Alessandra Zecchini, Cuisine
