ASK Italian (the Italian high street chain) has published an exclusive cookbook in collaboration with the Great Ormond Street Hospital to raise funds for the hospital.

The cookbook features the restaurant’s most popular dishes and anecdotes from their celebrity friends, including Dame Helen Mirren, Gino D’Campo and Claudia Winkleman. The book is filled with authentic Italian recipes to cook at home from hand-made pasta to perfect risottos and indulgent desserts.

The cookbook can be bought from book shops, online and in ASK restaurants. The RRP is £15, but if you buy it from one of the restaurants, the price is only £10 and £4 of that will go straight to the charity.

The aim is to raise £1 million for the hospital. Such a worthy cause!

It's a very appealing book. Lots of tasty Italian recipes teamed up with mouth-watering photos.
