ASK Italian cook bookI love a good cook book and ASK Italian has sent me their latest to review for them. If you have some food lovers in your family and you’re looking a gift then this book could be the answer.

ASK Italian restaurants have collected their favourite recipes in a new cookbook and not only that for each book sold a donation will be made to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

The book has over 100 true Italian recipes, one more delicious than the next, you’ll struggle to decide what to cook. The book has been edited by Carla Capalbo and includes recipes from TV chef and Italian cooking expert Theo Randall.

I flicked through and found how to make your own ravioli, I’ve always wanted to give that a go.
