Description: As in Francesca's kitchen, the invitation to food and drink is often the prelude to something more. The preparation of food in the film The Bridges of Madison County becomes a bittersweet task connected with true love and family duty. Each subtle nuance between Francesca and Robert builds and compounds -- far beyond the iced tea or stuffed green peppers within these pages. 

In our culture, the art of preparing gifts of food leads to romance and beyond. It may also celebrate a birth, welcome a neighbor, or pay homage to good fortune. The ritual of a first romantic awakening often begins with an invitation for dinner. Add dim lights, good food, and music. When the conversation relaxes, the sharing becomes intimate and relationships blossom. So it was with Francesca and Robert during those sultry days of an Iowa summer, circa 1965. Compiled here are those recipes that celebrate the life and times of that now famous pair -- mouthwatering meals you can make your own.
