Anna Del Conte

Anna Del Conte has spent five decades writing about Italian food. She has covered food from the Renaissance, to the twentieth century, and from the foothills of the Alps to tip of the Italian toe. Her many books are as authoritative a source as you will find on classic Italian food, and are not only a pleasure to cook from, but a delight to read.

Now in her 90s, Anna could be excused for declining to experiment with the new gluten free pasta and milk-free ingredients that are flooding the market, but on the contrary, she has taken up the challenge.

To hear Anna talking about Italian food, go the the FreeFrom all’Italiana site. See here for a video of Anna and Michelle talking about the book; see here for videos of Anna and Michelle talking about FreeFrom Italian antipasti, dolci and local Italian produce.
