Simona Ranieri is “kitchen born”. The daughter of restaurant owners from the Abruzzi, she soon learned how to make her way among pots and pans. But when her career as a professional chef was at the point of taking off, she found out she had celiac disease and couldn’t taste the dishes she made anymore. Instead of being discouraged, Simona transforms what could be a limit into her strong point. She specializes in gluten free cuisine to offer clients of her family’s restaurant an ad hoc menu. The challenge is to create dishes able to satisfy any palate so no one is excluded from the delight of eating delicious food. Her recipes, divided into six sections – appetizers, first and main courses, one course meals, an office menu and desserts – are the result of imagination combined wit scrupulousness and flavours from all over the world. Starting from the principle that gluten can be harmful to health and that everyone should eat in a healthy way – favouring veggies, fish, meat, pulses, nuts, dried fruit, spices and herbs – Simona proposes dishes in which no one has the sensation of giving up something: from quinoa veggie balls to buckwheat spaghetti with bass and bacon, from seafood hamburgers to piglet à la green tea, from millet fritters with peas to crumb cake with grape jam. In short, there’s everything to drive you wild! And to choose a good wine to accompany the recipes, there is also a section in the book curated by the sommelier Adua Villa who advises the so-called “green” label wines that are organic, biodynamic, vegan.
