This would be an awesome birthday present! I love mushroom risotto and a good pasta con pomodoro e basilico!

I love to make lasagna at home. It’s one of our favourite comfort foods.


I make pizza from scratch every couple of weeks. Love changing up the toppings.

Big, delicious bowl of pasta on a cold night! Ideally with fresh, homemade pesto and a few sliced sundried tomatoes.


Pasta is my favourite Italian dish to make at home. We make it every week. Lasagna is our favourite!

This would be great! I love watching Lidia on TV.

My fav Italian dish is nice and simple – spaghetti with tomato sauce.
