Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For me, Italian cuisine has always been more about the spirit of cooking than following a strict old world code of authenticity. Colman captures this spirit beautifully in The Country Cooking of Italy."
-Andrew Carmellini, Chef/Restaurateur

"Substantive and succinct. Colman Andrews tops the list of food writers of our generation. He teaches me every day."
-Lydia Shire, Chef/Restaurateur

"I love the book, the recipes, and the pictures! Colman Andrews has gone country with The Country Cooking of Italy - that is, gone to where cooking is simple, from the soul, micro-regional, and always seasonal. In this book, Colman has captured deliciously the soul of Italian country food."
Tutti a Tavola a Mangiare....
- Lidia Bastianich, Chef/Restauranteur

"The only thing better than the anticipation of a new Colman Andrews cookbook is the arrival of the book itself. Reading Country Cooking of Italy, I am torn between getting on the next flight to Italy and going into my kitchen to start making the inspiring and delicious recipes. This extraordinary book, by a brilliant writer, will make better cooks of us all."
-Ruth Rogers, Chef/Co-Owner, The River Cafe, London
