Acquacotta – recipies and stories from tuscany ( Engelstalig )

 32,50

Discover the cuisine of a secret part of southernmost Tuscany, a sliver of land known as La Costa D’Argento — the silver coast. Named for the shimmery salt-and-pepper sand along this part of the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is a region of rolling hills, long beaches, overgrown fig trees, rambling vineyards – and rich culinary history.

In Acquacotta, Tuscan-based, Australian-born writer and photographer Emiko Davies has compiled and adapted her Italian family’s best-loved recipes from Capalbio, Monte Argentario, Giglio Island and inland to the hot springs of Saturnia and the ancient Pitigliano. In words and pictures, Emiko guides readers through the use of local ingredients, as well as sharing the history of rustic, storied dishes including scampi and potato soup, hand-rolled strozzapreti noodles, spinach and ricotta tortelli, chestnut gnocchi and the classic fig and chocolate bread, pagnotella. Plus, of course, the book’s namesake acquacotta, a quintessential Maremman peasant dish that captures the spirit of this special place.

Emiko Davies is a food writer and columnist living in Tuscany. She first arrived in Florence with nothing but a suitcase and some broken Italian, but it soon stole her heart and inspired her to begin her now five-year-old blog about Tuscan food, its history, and its almost strict adherence to traditions. She is considered an international authority on Florentine food, with a weekly column for Food52 called Regional Italian Food, and a biweekly column for Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, among other features. She is also an accomplished photographer and has had her images featured in Kinfolk and Maeve Magazine.
