Owners' Recipes: Pasta alla Torretta
Installment number three from our owners' recipes series comes from Maureen Sheda. Maureen fell in love with Italy during her European travels in the seventies, and moved there permanently.
She married Italian Roberto and together they discovered La Torretta in Casperia. Roberto, an architect, breathed new life into the 15th-century palazzo and they now run a cookery school and successful B&B. They hold wine and olive oil tastings in the medieval hilltop village, too, and have been members of the Slow Food Movement since it began.
