Italy has 20 regions, each home to a unique and delicious cuisine. Culinary instructor and cookbook author Katie Caldesi's book, The Italian Cookery Course, is a compilation of 400 of Italy's best recipes from simple to very complex. Did someone say simple? Beause this parsley-lemon pesto takes no time to make and will serve us well through the summer and beyond.
