Recipe for Life by Nicky Pellegrino


We have just received an advanced copy of Nicky Pellegrino’s latest book Recipe for Life. Although I have not managed to get my hands on it yet the girls in the shop who have read it tell me it makes them want to go to Italy and just eat; they absolutely loved it. If you loved Italian Wedding, or the Gypsy Tearooms keep an eye out for Recipe for life due out around March.

FYI here is the publishers blurb:

Escape to Italy with this sumptuous story of secrets and friendships under Mediterranean skies.

A recipe for life should be a simple thing: love and happiness, family, friends and a little food. But life is rarely straightforward…

Alice wants to make the most of life – after all, she knows how fragile it can be – and knows she never feels more alive than when she’s cooking.

Babetta has spent a lifetime tending the garden of her tiny house on the Italian coast. Growing food to feed a family now grown and gone.

One summer these two women are brought together in a crumbling Mediterranean villa, with the shared language of food and the soil they grow it from. There, under the heat of the Italian sun, or the shade of the pomegranate tree, secrets will be spoken, fears and hopes shared. But life’s lessons are not learnt easily.

RECIPE FOR LIFE is a novel about discovering how life never stops surprising us, and about how, with a little love and courage, its flavours can be richer than we ever imagined.
