Riccardo Momesso's parents, Antonio and Lucia, moved from Calabria to Australia in the 1950s, bringing their cooking traditions with them foraging, hunting, fishing, preserving and, most importantly, the tradition of sharing food with family and friends.

Antonio and Lucia shows you how to makes the preserves, sauces and smallgoods that are at the heart of Calabrian cooking and much more, with chapters covering stuzzichini (shared plates), soup, pasta, seafood, meat and dessert.
