The more doctors test it, the more they find that eating Mediterranean is the absolute best way to lose weight and be healthy. Based on the cooking and eating style of Italy, the Mamma Mia! plan features olive oil, fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish and poultry, whole grains and, yes, wine!
The Mamma Mia! Diet was created by two native-born Italian professionals – a pharmacist, culinary expert (myself) and biochemist (Paola Palestini) who together present the secrets to good health, weight management and longevity – attributes of their fellow “paesano”.

This engaging everyday Italian cookbook features simple recipes highlighting fresh, seasonal, local and healthy ingredients. Italian food is simple, tasty and zesty. You can whip up a mouth-watering meal with only a few ingredients, in no time, putting a delectable dinner on the table with a minimum of stress and maximum of taste. My recipes are incredibly accessible – and delicious – perfect to share with your family and friends. I selected these recipes with passion, trying to include many regional – as well as my family’s – culinary traditions.
The book is divided into four chapters (first courses, main courses, salads and side dishes, and of course, desserts) plus an appendix with some basic Italian preparations such as fresh egg pasta, orecchiette pasta or pizzoccheri pasta, tomato sauce and mascarpone cheese. All the recipes are written with both metric and imperial measurements.
Italian cooking is not only composed of ingredients, but also of people, and as such it cannot be reduced to the final act of consumption. Italian food is more than only nourishment … it is history, culture, art, health and, last but not least: Family. Nutritional information on some typical Mediterranean ingredients is also presented by Katharine McKeever, an Australian nutritionist who lives in Italy. The Sicilian recipes are accompanied by the beautiful and original art work of Adriana Glaviano, a well-known Italian artist and fashion director.
I hope you will enjoy discovering “la mia cucina italiana” as much I love to share it with you!
