Francesca Voza is one of the most renowned Italian chefs in the lower South Island, and she’s finally released a book. Francesca’s Italian Kitchen has been providing authentic Italian food from outlets in Dunedin, Timaru, Christchurch, and Wanaka for years. At last, her collection of approximately 80 recipes is being released to the public. Cooking Italian at home is made easy for Kiwis, as she makes sure to include local New Zealand products. Lamb shoulder ragu, roasted pork hock, and antipasti inspired by local fare brings European fare down to earth and easy-to-cook. Make sure to try Voza’s cocktail recipes, too.
