Eating Up Italy

Eating Up Italy
Author: Matthew Fort
Edition year: 2004
HorizonsUnlimited description:

The Italian genius for combining abundance and thrift is evident from the economy of the mountainous and sparse landscape of Molise, where much use is made of pastas and chillies, and adjoining lush Abruzzo, with its delicious cheeses and risottos. Fort travels on to Emilia-Romagna, where much of what we have come to love in Italian food can be found: prosciutto di Parma, mortadella, ravioli, taggliatelle and zamponi...In Piedmont, the wine-and-truffle country stretching from the shadow of the Alps through arable flatlands, the cooking of France and Northern Europe fuses with that of Italy. This enticing sum of parts -- the dishes, producers, ingredients, consumers and eating occasions -- make up nothing less than a contemporary portrait of the country.
