Anna del Conte's Gastronomy of Italy has won acclaim over Europe. The original version won the prestigious Duchessa Maria Luigia di Parma prize. This concise, paperback edition includes all the information of Gastronomy, but in a handy, accessible, lightweight edition - perfect for packing in a weekend bag and carrying as a source of culinary and vinicultural information. This text-only edition features a detailed introduction to the origins and history of Italian food, the immense variation between the 16 major regions of Italy and the specialities of each area, a 200-recipe section, a full glossary of more than 130 definitions, a new section on shopping and a survey of Italian wines. Wines are matched to Anna's recipes and explanations of aroma and appearances are included. Together this wealth of material comprises an invaluable cookery book and informative reference guide. This new format allows the reader to take to book on holiday and therefore understand commonly found phrases on restaurant menus and in delicatessans. Nigella Lawson wrote of Gastronomy of Italy, "There is nothing to match this book. It is both comprehensive guide and indispensable companion - as pleasurable to read as it is to cook from."
