Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lorenza de'Medici, a leading authority on the cookery of Italy, complements these photographs with an elegant narrative and more than 100 simple but inspired recipes. Featuring such well-loved fruits as apples and plums, as well as the more unusual gooseberry and quince and exotic fruits like guavas and papayas, these recipes will entice readers to try new ways of exploiting the colors, textures, and tastes of fruits. A feast for the eye as well as the palate, this is a book that will inspire cooks, art lovers, and gardeners alike and add to their enjoyment in the kitchen and pleasure at the table.

With its color-drenched images bringing to life the beauty of sun-ripened fruits, A Passion for Fruit celebrates the rewards of lovingly tended gardens and orchards. Inspired by the delicate painting of Giovanna Garzoni, the 17th-century Florentine artist, Mike Newton has created an exquisite collection of still-life photographs of all varieties of fruit. The gentle art of the court miniaturist to the Medici is reflected in these delicious images, from fresh, sun-warmed figs to the season's first sweet strawberries and the velvety seductiveness of the peach.
