Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Frances Mayes, whose enchanting #1 New York Times bestseller Under the Tuscan Sun made the world fall in love with Tuscany, invites us back for a delightful new season of friendship, festivity, and food, there and throughout Italy.

A companion volume to Under the Tuscan Sun, Bella Tuscany is Frances Mayes's passionate and lyrical account of her continuing love affair with Italy. Now truly at home there, Mayes writes of her deepening connection to the land, her flourishing friendships with local people, the joys of art, food, and wine, and the rewards and occasional heartbreaks of her villa's ongoing restoration. It is also a memoir of a season of change, and of renewed possibility. As spring becomes summer she revives her lush gardens, meets the challenges of learning a new language, tours regions from Sicily to the Veneto, and faces transitions in her family life. Filled with recipes from her Tuscan kitchen and written in the sensuous and evocative prose that has become her hallmark, Bella Tuscany is a celebration of the sweet life in Italy.

Synopsis:

Mayes invites us back to Tuscany for a new season of friendship, festivity and food. She is now truly at home, learning a new language and touring neighbouring towns, villages and islands, delving into gardening, wine-making and the experience of primavera. A section of recipes from her kitchen is included.

Synopsis:

Following the acclaimed "Under The Tuscan Sun", "Bella Tuscany" explores the areas surrounding Tuscany, including castle towns, fishing islands and villages, and reveals another batch of culinary treasures from the author's kitchen. "Mayes has an eye for concrete detail, an obvious pleasure...in the texture of life around her, and a gift for the apt phrase." "The Sunday Times".
