Delicious Italian-inspired recipes from a New Zealand home garden
Nostrana means homegrown, ours; growing food with the intent of sharing it.
Inspired by the abundant lemon trees and trellised tomato vines of her Italian grandparents’ vegetable garden, Bri DiMattina started her own edible pantry in her back garden and discovered the joys of bringing food from seed to table.
Organised seasonally, and with growing guides for each ingredient, Nostrana shares simple, gorgeous and delicious recipes with fresh vegetables and fruits you can easily grow and harvest yourself.
Just a taste of the mouth-watering, Stromboli-inspired recipes in Nostrana includes:
- fried artichokes with caper mayonnaise
- strawberry and amaretto slushies
- green bean panzanella
- bottled spaghetti
- zucchini arancini
- rhubarb and custard tortes
- BBQ parmigiana
- and limoncello.
