Want to cook Italian food but terrified by the complicated recipes? Exasperated because you can't find the right ingredients? Wish you could eat chilli with your pasta? Ritu Dalmia, chef and owner of Diva, Delhi's most beloved Italian restaurant, teaches you how to cook authentic, delicious Italian food in your Indian kitchen that will have you throwing out your dal-chawal and begging for some pomodoro.
Ritu tells you how and what to cook, for everything from a large show-off dinner to a romantic supper a deux; for sharing your table with friends or cosying up on the sofa. She shares her most popular recipes from Diva and her all-time favourites, writes about how the different regions in Italy differ in their cooking styles, and tells you which wine to pair with what food. Accompanied by useful tips on techniques and sourcing ingredients, and anecdotes about her experiences cooking for her vegetarian Marwari family, the wonderful disaster of her first restaurant Mezzaluna, and setting up Diva, Italian Khana will be both your guru and your best friend in the kitchen.
