Publishers Text

Inspired by the exquisite paintings of the 17th - century Florentine artist Giovanna Garzoni, Mike Newton's color - drenched photographs bring to life the beauty and variety of garden - grown vegetables. The gentle art of the court miniaturist to the Medici is reflected in these gorgeous still lifes of sun - ripened tomatoes and eggplants and succulent pods bursting with beans. To complement these images, celebrated Italian cook Lorenza de' Medici (a direct descendant of Garzoni's patrons), offers an elegant, informative narrative and more than 100 Tuscan-inspired recipes. Using well-loved favorites, such as cabbage, potato, and leek, as well as the more unusual, like kohlrabi and celeriac, she offers delectable recipes for every course. A book to inspire cooks, art lovers, and gardeners alike.
