Delizia : The Epic History of Italians and Their Food Hardback

Hardback

Description

'If only we could all write as brilliantly on Italy and its food as John Dickie does.

He may well know Italy and Italians better than they know themselves' Stanley TucciThe new edition of the much-loved classic, with a fresh chapter that brings the surprising and moreish tale of the Italian way of eating right up to the present. Delizia! takes the reader on a revelatory historical journey through the flavours of the cities that shaped the Italian love for good eating.

From the bustle of Medieval Milan, to the bombast of Fascist Rome; from the pleasure gardens of Renaissance Ferrara, to the putrid alleyways of nineteenth-century Naples.

In rich slices of Italian life, Delizia! shows how violence and intrigue, as well as taste and creativity, went to make the world's favourite cuisine.

With its mix of vivid story-telling, ground-breaking research and shrewd analysis, John Dickie's Delizia! is as appetising as the dishes it describes.
