Publisher Comments:

A travelogue, cookbook and literary guide all in one, full of delightful prospects and insights into the Italian way of life

Synopsis:

Since 1533, when Caterina de Medici was accompanied by numerous cooks and cellarers on her trip to France to marry King Henri I, Tuscan cuisine has been considered the mother of all European fine cooking. Alice Vollenweider has written a travelogue, cookbook and literary guide all in one, full of delightful prospects and insights into the Italian way of life, which evolves around cooking and eating - the most sociable part of their culture. All the important regions of Italy are introduced by their cuisine and made even more palatable with many recipes and useful tips about people, places and pleasures. Written by one of the leading experts on contemporary Italian pots and poets, the book introduces Italian writers within their home region and furthermore gives useful hints about restaurants, the odd rare fabric shop, a hidden museum or beautiful drinking bars. Includes over 80 recipes.
