Library Journal
Last year, Esposito, host of a long-running PBS series, explored another part of the "heart of Italy" (Ciao Italia in Umbria); this season, she's moved slightly north to the better-known region of Tuscany. She chose as her base a restored, centuries-old villa and farm not far from Siena, and several of the series episodes captured in this companion volume (e.g., "The Mindful Gardener" and "When Tuscan Women Cook") were filmed there. Other episodes include "Dinner in a Palazzo," "The Merchant of Prato's Biscuit," and similar culinary excursions, with recipes for regional specialties from Bistecca alla Fiorentina to Panforte.
