In all her bestselling books about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. It transports, comforts, seduces and conveys perfectly the friendly, warm and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Tuscan food is, above all, genuino. So it's fitting that in her first cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, welcome readers to Bramasole, introduce their Tuscan friends and offer a deliciously tangible toast to la dolce vita by sharing a collection of favourite recipes and stories from twenty-one wonderful years of feasting in Tuscany, illustrated throughout with the luscious photography of longtime collaborator Steven Rothfeld. Lose yourself in the food, the people, and the place, and discover why the Italians know how to eat like the gods.
