When war came to Italy, everything changed for Anna Del Conte. Her family had to abandon their Milan apartment for the countryside, where the peasants still ate well; she threw herself into a ditch as strafing Allied planes flew over; and she was twice imprisoned on suspicion of involvement with the partisans. Her story is informed and enlivened by the food of her native land - from lemon granita to wartime risotto with nettles, from vitello tonnato to horsemeat roll, from pastas to porcini.
