Author Nicky Pellegrino talks about her 'research trips' to Italy, complete with Italian-style high tea

Nicky Pellegrino was the shy, half-English cousin among her exuberant Italian relatives who, nonetheless, kept her eyes and ears open. When she decided to write her first novel it was the memories of Italy – food, climate, passion, landscape – that inspired her. Nicky regularly visits Italy for research but hesitates to describe her life (which includes a husband, dogs and horses) as ‘La Dolce Vita’. Her nine novels – Under Italian Skies was published in April – have been translated into 12 languages. Our morning tea literary event is
catered by Spongedrop Cakery with an Italian flavour.
