Full description for Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy
Nowhere is food as much a part of everyday life as Italy - a country whose unique topography has resulted in distinct regional differences that are vibrantly alive and passionately celebrated. Following the success of Two Greedy Italians, Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo embark on a journey to explore Italy's distinct and varied terrains, and to find out how these have shaped the produce and, in turn, the peoples and their traditions. From snow-peaked mountains to lush plains, our two greedy Italians go in search of their homeland's varied culinary styles. They venture into the Alps for comfort food - those heart-warming dishes based around the use of butter, potatoes, polenta and rice. They head to the sea to uncover the many delicious fish and shellfish dishes emanating from this magnificent peninsula with its 1500 miles of coastline, as well as the distinctive cuisine of the Italian islands. Finally, they examine the rich agricultural plains through which flow some of the greatest rivers in Europe - in particular the Po in the north and the Tiber in the centre - revealing their historic influence on the foods grown and cooked within these regions. Containing over 80 mouth-watering recipes and breathtaking photography, Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy showcases the wisdom and passion of these two men for their native land, its people and produce. It is an essential book for anyone with an interest in this extraordinary country and its food.
