Anna del Conte looks back

Both residents of the same town in Dorset, Philippa Davis recently interviewed the ‘doyenne’ of Italian cookery (and fellow Guild member) Anna Del Conte for the This is Alfred podcast. During their fascinating and wide-ranging conversation, Philippa was specially interested to hear Anna recount how the British food scene has changed since her arrival in England in the 1940s. You can listen to the interview at – Anna’s section starts 11 minutes 15 seconds in to the podcast.

If you are intrigued to learn more, Anna’s autobiography Risotto With Nettles: A Memoir with Food makes a fascinating read.
