EAT THE ITALIAN WAY - EPISODE 3 FOOD & COOKING ARTICLE

The Giovanni Rana series of video features
are the last word in nutritious deliciousness

Italians are known for their food and Mediterranean love of life but whereas they 'live to eat', in Britain we tend to 'eat to live.' For us, eating is seen as more of a necessity and not about the experience itself. Perhaps we should all take note of the Italian philosophy when it comes to food. If we all have to eat to live, why not make it an enjoyable occasion?

In today's fast-paced society, it's often difficult to find time to sit down with your loved ones and have quality time together, let alone enjoy a meal. Less preparation means more time to enjoy our food - but it doesn't mean we need to compromise on taste and nutrition.

In this four-part video series, real Italian mums Daniela and Monica show us how to cook food that is quick, easy, tasty and good for you. Whether you're a busy mum looking for quick and nutritious meals to feed the family or if you're clueless in the kitchen and looking to impress, you won't go wrong with these easy-to-follow recipes.

Below you will find the video and below it is the accompanying recipe so you can sit back and enjoy the video without the need to make notes.
