Italian Country Cooking is about the real food of Italy. As Loukie explains, ‘cucina povera’ – the name Italians give to cooking that is eminently affordable and achieves great results. A Roman proverb says: ‘Piu se spenne e pejo se magna ... the more you spend, the worse you eat.’ Cucina povera means eating with a warm heart – quite possibly better than you've ever eaten in your life.
