Product description

Antonio Carluccio's "Italia" is a gastronomic tour embracing every region of the country. Each chapter weaves together fascinating information on the region's traditions, its typical products and its characteristic regions. Antonio's knowledge of Italy stems from his childhood when his family moved around the country following his father's job as a railway stationmaster. As a young man working as a wine merchant, Antonio toured the country deepening his knowledge of its different regions. This book, photographed in Italy by Alastair Hendy, distils Antonio's passion for his mother country and brings real insight to the different factors that influence its food and cooking. The breathtaking visual content celebrates the gastronomic life of Italy with stunning photographs of countryside and architecture, of people and food products, and of mouth-watering recipes.
