Description: Florentine cooking is world famous for its delicious taste and natural ingredients. 

Its traditional recipes are tasty, yet of great simplicity. Certain basic commodities arc essential in the preparation of these, such as whole-wheat bread, dried white beans, plum tomatoes, pasta, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh herbs such as rosemary, sage, basil, parsley, wild fennel seeds, chicken livers, and tripe. 

Until recently, these staples ingredients have often been hard to find; but now, in most cities around the world, specialized food stores and groceries offer the majority of them, making it possible to reproduce the authentic taste of Florentine cuisine in your home. 

This book contains a wide selection of dishes from Florence. All have been repeatedly tested and adapted to modern kitchen equipment and cooking methods. You will also find suggestions, interesting tales, variations and, above all, the intriguing history of Florence told through its culinary traditions: from the Etruscans to Catherine de' Medici; from the Grand Dukes of Tuscany to our present day gastronomy. 

After decades of success, this best- selling "classic" cookbook has finally been translated into English. All weights, measurements, instructions and ingredients have been adapted for use in other countries.
