    The pictures from the book are amazing. I can not wait to try so

    The pictures from the book are amazing. I can not wait to try some of the recipes. I have already given a copy to a friend and plan on enjoying some great Italian country food together. Sarah paints a beautiful story around the many recipes throughout the book. It is very well written and makes me long for time in Tuscany.

    We purchased 10 copies to give as gifts! To quote the author, "How could you ever get tired of paradise?" check it out!

    We had the pleasure of visiting Fattoria Poggio Alloro last summer on our trip to Italy. It was an amazing experience, the food was delicious, the wine was incredible and the farm is in one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. The book "A Family Farm in Tuscany" made me feel like I was there again. The stories of Sarah's family are heartwarming and make us want to visit again! I recently decided to make all the recipes in the book, the Melanzane alla Parmigiana was absolutely delicious. This is a wonderful book about a family living their dream in Tuscany and a cookbook all in one, what could be better!

    My family had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sarah's farm last summer. We had two meals while we were there which were wonderful. When we purchased the book, it was like being in Tuscany once again! It is wonderful.

    First, I admit this comes from a biased reader. My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Fattorio Poggio Alloro 2 years ago during a Tuscany excursion. We stopped at their lovely farm and winery between stops in Siena and San Gimignano. They were incredible hosts as they provided us a memorable tour of the farm, the winery, and a phenominal lunch. We became instant fans! To this day we still order wines and olive oil (yes, it’s that good) from them. So when Sarah informed of us of her upcoming book, we knew we’d have to get it.
    This has been a great and welcomed addition to our collection of goods from that trip to Italy as well as to our cookbooks. Reading this brings us back to our visit. She has done a fantastic job of intertwining the history of San Gimignano, her family, the farm, and a cookbook. Her joy and passion for the content comes through clearly in her writing and the pictures are a perfect accompaniment to bring the reader into the family and farm with her.
    Bravo Sarah and thank you!

    Highly Recommended - You must read it!!

    If you travel or ever wanted to travel to the Tuscany region of Italy, you must read this book. It is the story of a family working together in organic farming and wine-making. The book presents seasonal recipes 'Tuscany style' and easy to prepare. Sarah's story is well documented and you learn more about the Tuscany region from someone who lives there and loves the land. It gets 5 stars from me.
