Author Information

Pietro Demaio is a Melbourne GP with a passion for his Italian heritage and the traditional preserving recipes from his homeland. Pietro's parents emigrated from Calabria to Australia with a 'heart full of traditions, stories, recipes and skills' to help them settle into their new home. Pietro yearned to keep these old traditions alive and pass them on to his three sons, so he embarked on a personal journey to collect and publish preserving recipes not just from his own family, but from nonne, nonni and families all over Italy. The result was Preserving the Italian Way, Pietro's love song to his heritage and the childhood dishes he loved to eat.
