Here is the very best food from our very favorite cities--the glorious dining destinations Rome, Florence, Bologna, Milan, and Venice--brought to life by one of the most authoritative authors in the field. The 100 delicious, simple recipes range from time-honored home-cooking traditions to restaurant classics and even startling innovations by Italy's star chefs, and are accompanied by invaluable cooking tips and rich, evocative atmosphere. And each chapter offers travel tips galore--on the best restaurants, wine bars, gelatarie, and markets--as well as eminently useful reference sections on ingredients and menus.

Then lure you back home to re-create these experiences in your own kitchen.… (more)
