Welcome to Seeds of Italy

Seeds of Italy are pleased to be sharing with you Antonio Carlulccio's new book full of Italian vegetables with recipes, including many Franchi varieties so can make the most from your seeds from your veg plot to your dinner table.

"In this new book from the Godfather of Italian food, Antonio Carluccio turns his attention to his favourite vegetables. With an original collection of 120 recipes, reflecting both traditional and modern style, Vegetables inspires us make the most of the humble veg-Italian style-be it raw, cooked or preserved.

 Antonio describes in loving detail how to buy and prepare 100 different varieties of vegetable, from leaves and roots to pods, seeds and shoots, and from squashes, pulses and grains to herbs, spices, nuts and mushrooms. Although vegetables are at the very heart of his recipes, Antonio also shows us how to complement them with meat and fish. Recipes showcase the versatility of vegetables through vibrant salads, tarts, pasta, soups and stews, risotto, dips, jams and pickles as well as cakes, biscuits and ice cream.

We are proud to be promoting the RHS initiative 'Perfect for Pollinators'. You will see this logo on our website against certain flower and veg varieties and that means it is beneficial to pollinating bees and other insects. So if you find that you've had problems setting fruits, growing a 'Perfect for Pollinating' plant nearby will certainly help. Great job RHS!!
