Stagioni, meaning ‘seasons’ in Italian, is devoted to the fruits and vegetables of Italy and the dishes that celebrate them. Chef and food writer Olivia Cavalli brings together traditional recipes and contemporary creations with an enthusiastic aim to put the best produce of each moment on center stage.
With the change of season comes a change of appetite. In winter we crave steaming bowls of comforting soup and mountains of pasta to help fend off a chill. In summer, give us platters of crunchy vegetables and cones stacked high with ice cream. Stagioni will take us back to just that: to working with what’s available and not seeking out what isn’t and to understanding that, often, less really is more. It’s about stripping things back, cooking simply and anticipating each new month for the beautiful bounty of produce that it brings.
Stagioni is here to inspire you to cook your way through the year as it comes. Whether you’re cooking for one or a big gathering, there are recipes for every occasion, every person and every craving.
