Indulge in a year of Italian culinary bliss.

Wild Figs & Fennel is not just a collection of seasonal recipes; it’s a passport to the Mediterranean, a charming journey into the ease and pleasure that defines Italian life. Chef and food writer Letitia Clark brings together simple Italian flavours and lighter, modern interpretations with an aim to put the best of each seasons ingredients at centre stage.

From refreshing summer salads to steaming bowls of wintery pasta, you’ll find classics such as Sausage Lasagne with Ricotta, Pecorino and Fennel and Orange Blossom and Honey Amaretti alongside more creative combinations of Lemon Ricotta Souffle Pancakes, Pumpkin Gnocchi Fried in Sage Butter and Ricotta, Lemon and Herb-Stuffed Courgette Flowers. The occasional addition of meat and fish enhances rather than dominates, making these dishes fit seamlessly into a modern way of eating.

Whether you’re looking for a supper for one or cooking for a hungry crowd, Letitia’s vibrant and accessible recipes will guide you through the year, drawing inspiration from Italy’s beautiful seasonal produce along the way.

A culinary journey through the course of an Italian year with simple recipes and evocative stories for every craving and occasion.
