Publishers Text

This personal cookbook reflects the Siena-based author's love of the cuisine of her adopted homeland. Its title refers to the seasonal nature of the recipes within, with the chapters divided into the 12 months of the year. It is about the food of Tuscany, seasonal cooking and fine ingredients. It is the author's aim in this book to share some of the delights that have been part of her life in Italy: more than an informative guide, it outlines the basic goings-on that occur on Tuscan stove tops, in a region whose culinary fame is steadfastly rooted among the hills and within tradition. With exquisite photos of Tuscany and her family and neighbours, this books aims to entice and inspire the reader to live the Tuscan life.
