Tuscany : Simple meals and fabulous feasts from Italy Hardback
"Tuscany is a region of the soul. It is impossible to regard it as a simple geographical location, to be merely "visited".
Tuscany must be felt, lived, loved." - Giorgio De Martino. At the heart of every Tuscan there is a pride for their region and an incredible sense of responsibility and love for their surroundings.
From the minute they look out of their windows in the morning to the last nightcap at the bar, Tuscans, like most Italians, are immersed in food.
In Tuscany, Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi take readers on a culinary journey through a Tuscan day.
The pace of both life and cooking in Tuscany is slow and calm.
Breakfasts are considered, lunch often eaten at home with family, and weekend dinners a feast.
Try the Black Kale Bruschetta, a Farro, Courgette, Mint and Walnut Salad, and the Cheat's Spaghetti with Clams.
In Tuscany, there is a dolci (dessert) for every month of the year, and Katie and Giancarlo do not disappoint. Set against a backdrop of undulating hills, Tuscany takes you on a culinary journey across this diverse landscape, exploring the traditions and cooking techniques that make this food so extraordinary.
