Anna Del Conte, The Cook Who Changed Our Lives

We were honoured to appear recently in a documentary with not one but TWO of our absolute food heroes – Nigella Lawson and Anna Del Conte. Anna del Conte is a seminal figure in Italian cooking and in this wonderful documentary Nigella Lawson leads a fitting tribute to the cook who has had such an impact on the growth of Italian food in the UK.

Over 60 years ago Anna Del Conte used to come to Lina Stores to find speciality ingredients from Italy and in the documentary she returns to the store to find very little has changed over the years.

The programme will be broadcast live on BBC2 on Christmas Eve at 12 noon and can be viewed any time on BBC iPlayer here.

  • Laudato Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Tagliatelle
