Eating My Way Through Italy Summary

Eating My Way Through Italy: Heading off the Main Roads to Discover the Hidden Treasures of the Italian Table by Elizabeth Helman Minchilli

After a lifetime of living and eating in Rome, Elizabeth Minchilli is an expert on the city's cuisine. While she's proud to share everything she knows about Rome, she now wants to show her devoted readers that the rest of Italy is a gastronomic treasure trove just waiting to be explored. Far from being a monolithic gastronomic culture, each region of Italy offers its own specialties. While fava beans mean one thing in Rome, they mean an entirely different thing in Puglia. Risotto in a Roman trattoria? Don't even consider it. Visit Venice and not eat cichetti? Unthinkable. Eating My Way Through Italy, celebrates the gastronomic differences in the world's favorite cuisine. Divided geographically, Eating My Way Through Italy looks at all the different aspects of Italian food culture. Whether it's pizza in Naples, deep fried squid in Venice, street food in Palermo, an elegant dinner in Milan, gathering and cooking capers on Pantelleria, or drinking a chocolate laced coffee in Torino, each chapter includes, not just anecdotes and personal stories, but also recipes that explore the cultural and historical references that make these subjects timeless. For anyone who follows Elizabeth on her blog Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome, read her first book Eating Rome, or used her brilliant phone app Eating Italy to dine well, Eating My Way Through Italy, is a must.

Eating My Way Through Italy Reviews

Discovering Italy is all about traveling through the back roads and sitting down at the table with Italians. That is exactly what Elizabeth has done in her new book; she takes you to beautiful hidden gems all over Italy. She guides you regarding what not to miss and what to locally eat and where to eat it. On top of that, she scattered delicious regional recipes throughout the book. Eating My Way Through Italy is a savory book on Italy, one that you will take with you on your next trip to Italy AND to your kitchen when you long for those Italian flavors at home.
