Summer Time is Reading Time
And I have been devouring every word.
"Boisterous, gluttonous stories-some verging on the salacious..." Publishers Weekly
"A book that is as much a feast of horrors as delights..."The Sunday Times (London)
You don't read this kind of book when you are hungry or on a diet. You read it when you are sitting down in the shade of a big tree, with trade winds blowing, with a glass of wine in one hand and the book in the other, savoring history one sip at a time.
I swear, there is as much history here as there are recipes and how they came about.
If you are curious about how Italy came to be a great place for food, read this book. History was never this much fun for me.
If I were not already Italian, I would convert!
