Filled with the passion and personality of its author, it is a book not only of fine food and its careful preparation but of personal reminiscences and penetrating commentary about the sensual pleasure of food and its place in our lives. In vivid introductory essays and seductive headnotes, the narrative of an extraordinary culinary life unfolds. With each memory of a trip, a meal, or a flavor, we are treated to the perspective of a great cook and teacher - one who believes that the finest Italian cooking is found in the home. In Marcella Cucina she focuses on regional cooking, turning her sharp eye to every area of Italy and offering a rich array of flavors and textures from cities and villages alike. Best of all, Marcella cooks at your side with easy-to-follow instructions and lavish full-color photographs that teach you her techniques - from preparing homemade pasta to cleaning artichokes - and allow you flawlessly to re-create her magic in your own kitchen.

"There has never been a book like this about Italian food and wine." Victor and Marcella Hazan

Perhaps the only pleasure greater than dining on Italian food is dining on Italian food in Italy! Faith Willinger, the "foremost expatriate ambassador of all things edible and Italian" (New York Times), once again leads food lovers on a journey of culinary discovery in her revised and updated EATING IN ITALY: A Traveler's Guide to the Hidden Gastronomic Pleasures of Northern Italy. Roving gourmands and armchair travelers will feast on this complete handbook, which details the authentic foods, wines and traditions of the 11 regions that comprise the northern half of the country: Piemonte, Valle d'Aosta, Liguria, Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Lombardia, Emilia-Romagna, Toscana, Umbria and Le Marche.
