Description: The cuisine of Italy, inspired by the beauty and elegance, the tastes and textures of the country itself, is one of that nation's richest cultural heritages. Giuliano Bugialli's Foods of Italy, by the Italian culinary authority and award-winning author, is a very personal celebration of the foods and traditions of Bugialli's homeland.
The classic cucina of Italy is represented here by 125 recipes prepared by Bugialli especially for this book. We are offered an extensive and delicious menu -- vegetables, pasta, fish, meat, poultry, game, wine, cheese, fruits, and desserts -- including such dishes as Guinea Hen with Polenta, Trout with Black Truffles, Risotto with Zucchini Blossoms, Green Tomato Spaghetti, and Chocolate-Stuffed Pears. In a charming and informative text, Bugialli shares anecdotes about each of his recipes and about the growing, harvesting, and preparation of the ingredients.
The exceptional full-color photographs were taken especially for Foods of Italy by veteran photographer John Dominis, who worked with Bugialli to capture the essence of the land and its cuisine. The finished dishes are set against some of Italy's most beautiful architecture and landscapes; and the country's famed open markets, farms, and vineyards are also portrayed. These photographs tie together history, culture, and cuisine in a way that brings the flavor and the spirit of Italy into the reader's home.
