Hello and welcome to the weekend. Today, as you read this, I shall be racing around the most picturesque parts of Italy as I join in the Best of Italy Festival, which includes a road race of fabulous Italian supercars through the countryside around Castell’Arquato.

While I am there I shall be enjoying some of the gastronomic delights of the Emilia-Romagna region. Local specialities include tortellini, ravioli and lasagne bolognese, so I won’t go hungry.

Well, that’s the holidays now over and the kids are going back to school. This summer we have tried to keep to a strict regime of two sugar-free days a week, which I am hoping to keep up during the term time. I am a big supporter of the sugar tax and anti-obesity campaign.

A positive move that I have made in our household is to use coconut based products from CocoPacific to cook with. This week’s book is all about coconut – so it is the perfect book to accompany your new cooking regime.
