De Laurentiis is currently promoting her new children's book series, “Recipe for Adventure”. The series is written for children between the ages of 7 to 11, and feature Emilia, 12, and Alfie, 11, who find themselves in various parts of the world sampling local cuisine and customs. The books focus on the value of cooking, and how fresh and traditional foods can bring a family together.
The first book, Naples!, aims to show the kids how a meal cooked at home with the family, is better than the best take out or restaurant. Emilia and Alfie are transported to Naples where they meet up with Marco who is on a mission to find the ingredients for his family's famous pizza.
Described as a cross between the Magic Tree House and the Food Network by reviewers on Goodreads, the series is sure to be a winner for young adventurers and future chefs alike.
