Redolent with Tuscan sunshine and flavors—simple, delicious, and healthy recipes inspired by traditional Tuscan family dishes


Alvaro Maccioni's passion for his homeland of Tuscany, and the authentic recipes from that sublime region of Italy, has been on show at his famous London restaurant for more than 40 years. This cookbook is Alvaro's long-awaited companion to seasonal Tuscan cooking and collects his favorite menus from a lifetime devoted to providing wonderful food for others. Beginning with the tender tastes of spring and ending with the nourishing flavors of winter, Alvaros cookbook includes authentic antipasti, pasta, and risotto dishes; secondi piatti of meat, poultry, and fish; and tempting dolci. The 125 recipes are clearly presented for home cooking and are accompanied by enticing photographs. Collected from his farmhouse in Tuscany and adapted from his award-winning restaurant menu, the secrets of Alvaro's cooking will inspire a new generation of cooks who will appreciate the traditions of entertaining, sustaining, and celebrating La Famiglia. Includes conversion chart.
