Additional Details

Description: Cucina del Sole, the cuisine of the sun, is an apt title for a book that goes deep into southern Italy, a region little known to Americans, though many of us trace our roots back to this very soil and co these vibrant kitchens. Nancy Harmon Jenkins has been exploring the foods of Italy for more than thirty years. Now she takes us on a joyful voyage through one of her best-loved regions: the Mezzogiorno, the South-Sicily, Calabria. Basilicaia, Puglia. and Campania -- to discover its varied cuisines.

From restaurants with Michelin stars to old-fashioned trattorie and osterie, from city streets to country villages. Jenkins has sought out the best and most authentic so that you can reproduce this bounty at home. Cucina del Sole also brings us the people and places connected with these savory recipes. 

Jenkins takes us through a bustling fish market in Catania, co an olive mill in Castelvetrano at the height of the harvest, and to a time-honored Neapolitan pizzeria, where the line of customers stretches down the street. We meet a young tomato grower on the plains below Vesuvius, a group of bakers who rise before dawn to shape traditional breads from antique grains, shepherd cheesemakers who follow age-old techniques, and pastry chefs who work the miracle of pasta reale marzipan, forming it into astonishingly lifelike fruits.
