The Rustic Kitchen Cookbook & Bialetti Giveaway


” If you like food that tastes like you’ve been cooking your butt off all day and that’s simple to execute, then Florentina’s book is a must have! She gets what the old world’s traditions are all about; friends, family and some seriously simple food that will knock off your socks. ” -Chef Fabio Viviani

“Speaking as a bachelor who had rarely set foot in the kitchen, Florentina’s simple and sublime recipies make the daunting delicious. Not only do I make my own meals now, I’m actually entertaining the notion of entertaining in my own home! This is a major breakthrough!” Paul Edgewater~ International Best-Selling Author, Co-Founder and America’s Promotions Powerhouse™   

Someone smart once said “people make a plan and God laughs” .. Well something like that happened with “The Rustic Kitchen “ project.
I planned to release it free on Amazon two weeks ago and promised you all a copy, but once it came to the fine print it just wasn’t going to happen that way.
Long story short here is a Complimentary copy for you to DOWNLOAD a collection of the most beloved recipes from Ciao Florentina.
If you want or need a Kindle edition it is now available on Amazon for a symbolic price as they wouldn’t approve a free listing.
I am working on an exclusive new book just for Amazon, no repeat recipes-to be released next year 2013  with complimentary downloads to all kindle users as well.

While having a blast creating and testing recipes for “The Rustic Kitchen ”  I’ve also been testing the new cookware from Bialetti, the really pretty red collection that makes my kitchen look magical this holiday season.
As much as I love all my cast iron pots and pans, I’ve really been looking for something lightweight I can use any day of the week that’s easy to handle, clean and does the job right!
