WHAT BETTER WAY to salute the Italian people from afar than our annual Italian issue. The Italy of 2020 has done it tougher than many countries throughout isolation, but nothing will ever dampen our love of the country, its people and cuisine. In fact I’d go so far as to call it the cuisine that got us through Covid the warmth and heart of handmade pasta, ragu, pizza dough, tomato bases, simple ingredients, focaccia from scratch, making do, buying local. Cucina povera is where the world is at right now. There’s a reason tinned tomatoes and pasta were the first ingredients cleared from supermarket shelves in a crisis, closely followed by flour. Although I’m still not sure why risoni got left behind, but we are making up for that this…

VEGIE DELIGHTS “This menu is pure comfort – it’s just what I look for in cooler weather when there’s more down time lounging on the couch. Plus there’s no need to feel guilty about eating carbs on carbs when the menu is packed with vegies!” Helena Moursellas, Assistant Food Editor ICONIC ITALIAN “Featuring a bright array of stone-fruit aromas, the light style Stonier Chardonnay will finesse the chilli and sausage risotto dish. And with its white wine sauce, the pork cotoletta should be accompanied by a premium chardonnay that partners perfectly with the flavours of the main course. Try the Jimjoca Chardonnay – tight and restrained, with a floral lift followed by lemon juice and musky cinnamon spice flavour notes. To finish, the Stonier Sparkling will help cut through the creaminess and acidity of…

COOKING IN SEASON isn’t just about the produce for Joel Valvasori-Pereza, owner-chef of Lulu La Delizia in Subiaco. It’s about cooking the kind of things you feel like eating in the different seasons. “You only feel like eating watermelon in summer,” he says. “When autumn comes you start thinking about mushrooms, for instance. It’s like food emotions.” Here in July it’s time for the likes of hearty soup, pasta with rich ragu and his nonna’s meatballs. Those meatballs are emblematic of the eatery, Valvasori-Pereza’s first solo venture after four years at Lalla Rookh, in more ways than one. It’s named after his nonna, who emigrated from Friuli in the ’50s, and they embody the soul of the food, the flavours of that region in north-east Italy, bordering Slovenia, Austria and the Adriatic.
