Overview

Each year Italy's beautiful countryside is spattered with numerous food festivals that showcase various delectable foods,suchasgarlic,pasta,lentils,fruits,nuts,chocolates,andmore.Food Festivals of Italy not only highlights Italy's most diverse food fairs, but brings a taste of authentic Italy into your home with 100 recipes featuring the festival foods.

Part cookbook and part travelogue, Food Festivals of Italy is filled with spectacular photographs and centuries-old recipes that bring the Italian countryside, its people, and their cuisine to life-transporting both food lovers and travel aficionadosto the stall-lined village streets of these local fairs and their spectacular settings.

Chef Leonardo Curti and and award-winning author James O. Fraioli take both professional chefs and home cooks on a culinary odyssey of a different sort, creating this carefully culled collection of the best of each food festival's mouthwatering recipes.

Theexecutivechefandco-proprietor at the acclaimed Trattoria Grappolo bistro in Santa Ynez, California. Born in Calabria, Italy, Leonardo learned his culinary skills in Tuscany before relocating to Los Angeles, where he worked as a chef at Cicada and founded Pane Caldo in Beverly Hills. Leonardo's gastronomic journey then led him to Aspen, where he joined the legendary Farfalla Restaurant. In 1997, Leonardo opened Trattoria Grappolo in Santa Ynez and hasn't looked back. Today, the casual bistro continues to serve authentic, traditional Italian fare for lunch and dinner. Aside from the restaurant, Leonardo runs a full catering company and teaches private cooking classes. He has also launched a new line of pasta sauces.

James O. Fraioli is an award-winning author of numerous books, an investigative journalist,
and a food and travel writer,having contributed hundreds of feature articles to more than twenty magazines. Seasoned, skilled, and known for both the speed and grace of his writing, Fraioli' stitles reflect a wide variety of subjects. His work has appeared on national radio and television,
including Martha Stewart Radio, The Discovery Channel, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Food Network; presented at the White House; and featured in a variety of periodicals including Forbes Traveler, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The New York Times.

Fraioli and Chef Curti also teamed up on the award-winning cookbook, Trattoria Grappolo: Simple Recipes for Traditional Italian Cuisine.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Curti, the chef/owner of Trattoria Grappolo in Santa Ynez, CA, and Fraioli, a food and travel writer, previously collaborated on Trattoria Grappola. This lavishly illustrated new title showcases 50 Italian food fairs, from "Le Marche's Artichoke Festival" to "Campania's Watermelon Festival." The festivals are grouped into four categories-antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolce-and there are two recipes for each. Linking the festivals with regions rather than with individual towns known for their food fairs gives them a somewhat generic feel, and more specific travel information would have been helpful. Carol Field's Celebrating Italy, a far more ambitious book on the topic, includes a 50-page "Traveler's Calendar," along with culinary history and dozens of recipes, but Curti and Fraioli's attractive book should appeal to armchair travelers and home cooks.

We'd swear we could not take another bite, then found ourselves reaching for a fire-roasted chestnut from a local grower, sampling succulent pork served with cornmeal porridge, or gratefully accepting one more slice of hand-crafted salami infused with Barolo wine and black truffles.
