Relaxed aperitivo hour

Melon Proscuitto & gin rosa

As the golden sun melts into the horizon and we hear the chirping of crickets in the distance, we are transported back to balmy evenings in Italy. Sheer relaxation, sipping a fruity Malfy Spritz and enjoying the best of local summer produce. Soft sweet melon slices piled high with salty cured meat. Vibrant green broad bean dip with zesty lemon. Crispy coated tender squid dunked in garlicky aioli. This collection of recipes celebrates a time to sit back and enjoy Il dolce far niente: a pleasant idleness, the joy of doing nothing.
