A Thousand Days in Venice: An Unexpected Romance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fernando first sees Marlena across the Piazza San Marco and falls in love from afar. When he sees her again in a Venice café a year later, he knows it is fate. He knows little English; she, a divorced American chef traveling through Italy, speaks only food-based Italian. Marlena thought she was done with romantic love, incapable of intimacy. Yet within months of their first meeting, she has quit her job, sold her house in St. Louis, kissed her two grown sons good-bye, and moved to Venice to marry "the stranger," as she calls Fernando.
This deliciously satisfying memoir is filled with the foods and flavors of Italy and peppered with culinary observations and recipes. But the main course here is an enchanting true story about a woman who falls in love with both a man and a city, and finally finds the home she didn't even know she was missing.

About the Author

Marlena de Blasi, a former chef and a food and wine consultant, lives in Italy, where she assembles and conducts gastronomic tours of the various regions. She is the author of two previous memoirs as well as three books on the foods of Italy.
