Mr. Thomas Whieldon, an Italian-born son to a family of humble hoteliers, has compiled

a thorough cookbook of prized family recipes, ranging from rich and flavourful sauces to

homemade pasta, creamy risotto, succulent seafood dishes, savoury roasts, delicious

desserts, and so much more. In his book, FAMILY FAVOURITES - An Italian family

cook book, Mr. Whieldon shares each family member’s favorite recipes with their own

special zest for cooking. His family essentially lived and breathed hotels, often working

in the kitchen under great chefs, learning and perfecting techniques, making them

perfect contributors for such a work. This practical experience fostered a special love

and adoration for the simplicity of Italian cooking, a clear theme running through the


The cookbook beholds a family legacy of recipes and food preparation tips peppered

The idea of this family recipe book blossomed from the reality of a large family originally

from Northern Italy’s valley of the Valtellina, with plenty of cousins, sisters, sons, and

other relatives now living abroad or in distant locations. This warm and satisfying

volume of recipes allows all members of the family to enjoy the same family favourites no

matter where they live. The cookbook serves as a potent and nostalgic way to capture

and memorialise favorite cooking techniques and recipes for the entire family and

generations to come.

Family Favourites also brings this rich library of Italian family cooking to lovers of Italian

cuisine the world over, making all of the recipes easy to follow and reproduce at home

or abroad. Through Mr. Whieldon’s work, FAMILY FAVOURITES - An Italian family

cook book captures the family’s strong bond with tradition and preserves it for lifetimes

to come.
