Publishers Text

The mention of Tuscany evokes vivid images: sinuous dark cypresses leading to grand renaissance palaces, vineyards disappearing into a hazy horizon, dusty tracks through medieval villages that end in hilltop olive groves, earthenware jugs overflowing with good red wine, plates of tender home made pasta, and markets overflowing with bright-coloured vegetables. Leslie Forbes, artist and cook, set off for Tuscany last year, sketchbook and pencil in one hand and knife and fork in the other. She was captivated by the rich and diverse landscape and, in particular, the stupendous food. Her sharp eyes and appetite led her to canintas, bars, wayside stalls, markets, farmhouses, shops and restaurants- wherever good food and wine were to be found.
