Only in Naples

Katherine Wilson
Authors:
Katherine Wilson

Radio 4 Book of the Week'See Naples and die', said Goethe. But Katherine Wilson saw Naples and started to live. Katherine is fresh out of college when she arrives in Naples to intern at the US Consulate. There she meets handsome, studious Salvatore, and finds herself enveloped by his family - in particular by his elegant mother, Raffaella, who begins her real education: never eat the crust of a pizza first, always stand up and fight for yourself and your loved ones, and remember that mealtimes are sacred. Immersed in Neapolitan culture, tradition and cooking, slowly and unexpectedly falling for Salvatore, and basking in Raffaella's company and guidance, Katherine discovers how to prepare meals that sing, from rich ragù to pasta al forno, with bacon, béchamel and four kinds of cheese. Through courtship, culture clashes, Sunday Mass, marriage and motherhood, Katherine slowly comes to appreciate carnale, the quintessentially Neapolitan sense of comfort and confidence in one's own skin. Steeped in sunlight, wine and unforgettable food, Only in Naples is a love letter to a city and a family, a coming-of-age story, and a transporting account of learning to live the Italian way. 'Katherine Wilson gives us more than the fabulous food of Naples. She offers us a passport to an exotic country we would never be able to enter on our own.' Ruth Reichl, author of My Kitchen Year

This book will give you the knowledge and confidence to creat complete meals for every time of day and occasion - quickly. It will also teach you how to bake great cakes and breads, and make simple snacks and side dishes. Many meals are complete in their own right or have different elements that can be cooked one after the other (food needs to 'rest' before serving so this is quite possible and still keeep it all hot.). But it can be used alongside your conventional hob. You may, for instance, want to quickly boil some rice or pasta to accompany a delicious meat, fish, chicken or vegetable main course in the combi. You can also use ti as a conventional microwave, grill or convection oven.
