Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bon App tit correspondent Capalbo (The Ultimate Italian Cookbook) has written an exceptional and thorough handbook to the cuisine of the Naples and Campania regions of Italy. With a passion for all things Italian, she spent three years living in southern Italy to research her digest. Packed with coverage of the area's restaurants, wineries, gourmet shops, history, and cooking, as well as over 200 color photographs, this guide reveals the Italy only a native would know. The author's love and enthusiasm for her topic spills over on every page, evident in her thorough explanation of the region's food as well as her fervor for the area itself. There is no other comparable work available, making this almanac an excellent addition to any library.-Jennifer A. Wickes, Pine Beach, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Buy this book!

    I consider myself fortunate to unexpectedly pick up this book the day we left for southern Italy. At the last minute, I decided I needed guide book(s) and this caught my eye. Because of The Food and Wine Guide to Naples and Campania, we experienced far more of the excellent food and wine of the area than we would have ever done on our own. And we met wonderful, warm Campanians anxious to share their fresh and delicious food and hospitality with us. This book directed us to a wonderful agritourismo where we spent two nights and had outstanding meals, with most of the food fresh from the farm. We dined in restaurants off the beaten path, sitting with locals and savoring the experiences made possible by this exceptional guide book. One small drawback is finding some of the locations recommended in the book. Get a good map (as the author suggested) and be prepared to ask directions. And carry an Italian language guide as you may encounter areas and situations where English may not carry you far. But don¿t let that deter you-follow the author¿s recommendations and you will be rewarded. If you are looking a guidebook touting the usual sights and recommendations, this is not for you. If, however, you want to experience a slice of southern Italy that will leave you aching for a return trip, this is it!
