HASH(0xb9c371bc) out of 5 stars Clean & Sophisticated Italian Eats: Nov. 18 2006
By J. Perks - Published on Amazon.com
Surprised this book hasn't been reviewed yet. A very thorough investigation of Italian cooking - no hum bug, no feather ruffling, instead you will learn pure and simple peasant Tuscan cooking.

Try: Farro Risotto w/ pears & gorgonzola

Crostini w/ Tuscan black kale, acquacotta, and petraia caprese calda (hot chocolate torte) for dessert!

bene diminuisce!
