creamy mozzarella made with the milk of water buffalo to smooth balsamic
vinegar aged in Modena, the classic ingredients of Italian cookbooks are
still crafted using traditional methods that have been passed on for generations.
Italian Food Artisans takes you on a journey through the villages of Italy
to meet the passionate food artisans who keep these culinary traditions
alive. Visit a small village in southern Tuscany where tubs of purple
and green olives await a cold pressing. Take a moonlit journey with a
trifolao and his trusty dog in search of the tartufo bianco, the elusive
white truffle. Travel the countryside to discover the craftspeople behind
Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, chestnut flower honey, Italian chocolate,
vin santo, and many others Italian delicacies. Beautifully photographed
throughout, Italian Food Artisans also includes more than fifty authentic
recipes that will bring the robust and satisfying flavors of Italy home
to your table.
