Claudia Piras, Ruprecht Stempell

From the Austro-Hungarian food tradition in Trieste to the Arabian influence in Sicily, this book is a culinary grand tour of Italy, exploring every corner of the Italian kitchen as well as the region's gustatory history back to imperial Rome, with 1400 photos and some 380 authentic recipes. Here you will find classics like pepperoni and panettone from Milan and risottos from the Piedmont; prosecco from the Veneto and ham from San Daniele, olive oil and pesto from Liguria and mozzarella from Campania. Here too are lesser-known delicacies like tortellini di zucca from Lombardy and aromatic truffles from Umbria, as well as the best wines from every region, examined in detail. Much more than a cookbook, this volume in the Culinaria series is a lavishly illustrated and detailed reference work for an entire cuisine, written by those who know it best. It delves into the history, tradition, and the nature of the land, as well as local ingredients, specialties, and cooking techniques in a region-by-region tour, overflowing with color photographs, maps, and drawings.
