  • This book presents an in depth description of the cuisine that many consider to be Italy’s best. Internationally famous for its wine and white truffles, the Piedmont also gives us numerous products (…handmade breadsticks, quality beef, the world’s best filberts, great variety of cheeses, exquisite chocolate and cookies…) used to prepare dishes that are both extremely interesting and extraordinarily delicious. But there is much more than recipes: the author provides a vast amount of information about gastronomic culture and local traditions, social and agricultural history and how opinions and prejudices regarding different foods have changed over time, all explained with knowledge, enthusiasm and passion.The informative text is lavishly illustrated with the author’s own beautiful drawings and watercolors, making every page a pleasure to read or just look at. Cooks will certainly appreciate the recipes and even those who will never prepare them will enjoy reading the fascinating story the book tells and will delight in its visual qualities, in just turning its splendidly designed pages.
