Food of Italyby Chriss L. Jones (Photographer), Kay Halsey (Contribution by), Sophie Braimbridge (Contribution by), Lulu Grimes (Editor), Jo Glynn (Contribution by)
The Food of Italy gives you a real taste of a country that loves its food with a passion. Join our culinary journey from the kitchens of Sicily to the cheese-makers of Naples, through the vineyards of Tuscany to the restaurants of Bologna, and discover the food that defines today's Italian cooking: a simple seafood antipasto, a rich polenta with wild mushrooms, or strawberries drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
Each recipe is photographed as it is made, and accompanied by useful hints on methods and ingredients. Beautiful photographs shot in Italy show how to choose the best produce: from market-fresh vegetables to Mediterranean seafood and regional cheeses.
Special sections explore the essence of Italian food and drink. Varieties of pastas, cheeses, salamis and hams have been photographed to make identification easy; there is a section on cafe culture and making a perfect espresso; as well as a guide to matching the best of Italy's wines to its foods.
The purpose behind The Food of Italy was to create the definitive guide to real Italian food. To find out the secrets of Italy�s kitchens, we brought together an expert team to travel through the country. Editor Kay Halsey, food editor Lulu Grimes, art director Marylouise Brammer and photographer Chris Jones travelled to myriad towns and cities, photographing food, talking to chefs, meeting food artisans, researching and writing about a land that truly appreciates food.
