A Culinary Traveller in Tuscany
Exploring & Eating Off the Beaten Tracj
Paperback ISBN: 1892145685
Each of the ten itineraries in this cookbook/guidebook takes readers through parts of Tuscany that still remain largely undiscovered and into the kitchens of more than fifty superb but little-known restaurants specializing in regional cuisine–those that are for the most part overlooked by tourists and known only to the locals. Each regional section begins with illuminating and absorbing explanations of what makes Tuscan cooking so unique: location, location, location. You’ll read about a bean so beloved by a village that it’s been elevated to cult status–but unknown a few kilometers down the road; an aboriginal baby lamb that is almost unknown outside of the Zeri valley; the endless array of vegetable tarts found nowhere in Tuscany but Lunigiana and Garfagnana. With this guide in hand, you’ll not only know where to dine but what to order when you get there. In addition to 100 recipes, also included are nearby points of interest, descriptions and contact information for restaurants, trattorie, gourmet shops, wineries, olive oil producers, local markets, and regional food festivals, and how to find the monasteries, workshops, and artisans’ studios that offer local items ranging from herbal beauty products to traditional ceramics and handwoven linens.

The recipes in Pasta are arranged in the same order as the interns are taught to make them, from simple to more complex, and are organized in the way Italians think about pasta, not only as fresh or dry, but by the base of the sauces (oil-, tomato-, meat-, and vegetable). Even the most sophisticated cooks will be intrigued by Chef Chris Boswell's engaging notes that explain what makes the flavors work together, why and how the sauces work with the pastas, and what makes a dish not only great, but unforgettable."--
