“Tuscan food tastes like itself. Ingredients are left to shine. . . . So, if on your visit, I hand you an apron, your work will be easy. We’ll start with primo ingredients, a little flurry of activity, perhaps a glass of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and soon we’ll be carrying platters out the door. We’ll have as much fun setting the table as we have in the kitchen. Four double doors along the front of the house open to the outside—so handy for serving at a long table under the stars (or for cooling a scorched pan on the stone wall). Italian Philosophy 101: la casa aperta, the open house.” —from the Introduction In all of Frances Mayes’s bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating in Tuscany are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: dishes prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients. A toast to the experiences they’ve had over two decades at Bramasole, their home in Cortona, Italy, this cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries, and porcini; dinner parties stretching into the wee hours, and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes. Lose yourself in the transporting photography of the food, the people, and the place, as Frances’s lyrical introductions and headnotes put you by her side in the kitchen and raising a glass at the table. From Antipasti (starters) to Dolci (desserts), this cookbook is organized like a traditional Italian dinner. The more than 150 tempting recipes include: · Fried Zucchini Flowers · Red Peppers Melted with Balsamic Vinegar · Potato Ravioli with Zucchini, Speck, and Pecorino · Risotto Primavera · Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Sausage · Cannellini Bean Soup with Pancetta · Little Veal Meatballs with Artichokes and Cherry Tomatoes · Chicken Under a Brick · Short Ribs, Tuscan-Style · Domenica’s Rosemary Potatoes · Folded Fruit Tart with Mascarpone · Strawberry Semifreddo · Steamed Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Sauce Frances and Ed also share their tips on stocking your pantry, pairing wines with dishes, and choosing the best olive oil. Learn their time-tested methods for hand rolling pasta and techniques for coaxing the best out of seasonal ingredients with little effort. Throw on another handful of pasta, pull up a chair, and languish in the rustic Italian way of life.

A CLASSIC FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF UNDER MAGNOLIA The author who unforgettably captured the experience of starting a new life in Tuscany in bestselling travel memoirs expands her horizons to immerse herself—and her readers—in the sights, aromas, and treasures of twelve new special places. A Year in the World is vintage Frances Mayes—a celebration of the allure of travel, of serendipitous pleasures found in unlikely locales, of memory woven into the present, and of a joyous sense of quest. An ideal travel companion, Frances Mayes brings to the page the curiosity of an intrepid explorer, remarkable insights into the wonder of the everyday, and a compelling narrative style that entertains as it informs. With her beloved Tuscany as a home base, Mayes travels to Spain, Portugal, France, the British Isles, and to the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the South of Italy, and North Africa. In Andalucía, she relishes the intersection of cultures. She cooks in Portugal, gathers ideas in the gardens of England and Scotland, takes a literary pilgrimage to Burgundy, discovers an ideal place to live in Mantova, and explores the essential Moroccan city of Fez. She rents houses among ordinary residents, shops at neighborhood markets, wanders the back streets, and everywhere contemplates the concept of home. While in Greece, she follows the classic Homeric voyage across the Aegean, lives in a bougainvillea-draped stone house in Crete, and then drives deep into the Mani. In Turkey with friends, she sails the ancient coast, hiking to archaeological sites and snorkeling over sunken Byzantine towns. Weaving together personal perceptions and informed commentary on art, architecture, history, landscape, and social and culinary traditions of each area, Mayes brings the immediacy of life in her temporary homes to the reader. An illuminating and passionate book that will be savored by all who loved Under the Tuscan Sun, A Year in the World is travel writing at its peak.

Die Provence - eine beschauliche Landschaft mit Dörfern, in denen nichts los ist? Der Lubéron - ein Gebirgszug in Südfrankreich, in dem der Hund begraben ist? Wer das denkt, hat noch nie eine von Peter Mayles köstlichen Schilderungen des provenzalischen Alltags gelesen! Wie bereits in "Mein Jahr in der Provence" entführt der Autor auch in diesem Buch seine Leser wieder in die farbenprächtige Landschaft Südfrankreichs. Das Leben in der Provence, das er in seinem Dorf und dessen Umgebung kennengelernt hat, ist weit entfernt von der Ruhe und Beschaulichkeit, die malerische Postkarten vorgaukeln. Im Gegenteil: In den Dörfern des Lubéron, von denen Peter Mayle erzählt, ist einiges los! Die Fortsetzung von Peter Mayles erstem Welterfolg "Mein Jahr in der Provence". Für alle Provenceliebhaber und solche, die es werden wollen!

Tim Parks’ Bücher über Italien sind "so lebendig, so voll mit köstlichen Details, dass sie als würdiger Ersatz für das Wirkliche dienen können" (Los Angeles Times). In diesem äußerst unterhaltsamen Reisebericht zeichnet Tim Parks ein authentisches Portrait italienischer Lebensweise – wie es sich auf Zugfahrten durch das Land erschließt. Ob als Pendler in ratternden Regionalbahnen, beim Kampf mit tückischen Fahrkartenautomaten oder auf der Suche nach dem richtigen Gleis im majestätischen Hauptbahnhof Mailands, immer richtet sich sein literarischer Blick auf Details, auf Besonderheiten. In unvergesslichen Begegnungen mit pedantischen Schaffnern und kauzigen Mitreisenden, mit Priestern und Prostituierten, Schülern und Verliebten fängt Parks ein, was für das italienische Leben so charakteristisch ist: die Obsession für Geschwindigkeit und zugleich der Sinn für lebensfreundliche Entschleunigung; die großartigen Baudenkmäler und ihre fast schon gezielte Vernachlässigung; und die unsterbliche Begeisterung für ein gutes Argument und den perfekten Cappuccino. "Italien in vollen Zügen" erzählt auch, wie die Eisenbahn dazu beigetragen hat, Italien als Staat zu konstituieren, und wie ihre Entwicklung das Bewusstsein Italiens von sich selbst reflektiert – von Garibaldi zu Mussolini zu Berlusconi und darüber hinaus.
