Publishers Text

Exploding once and for all all the myths that Italians live entirely on minestrone, spaghetti and veal escalopes, this book demonstrates the enormous and colourful variety of Italy's regional cooking. Listing well over four hundred dishes, clearly described and helpfully classified, the author of "A Book of Mediterranean Food" and "French Country Cooking" also enumerates the various herbs and spices required in many of them, explaining where they may be bought and there are useful chapters on Italian wines and cheeses.
