The Book

The book is about my travel through the 20 regions of Italy, in search for stories on the origins of Italian cuisine. I sketch the many pure regional delicacies, other than pasta. Each region is not only culturally and historically rich but also culinarily unique. Through interviews with ‘specialists’ and dozens of tasteful photographs, I bring the authentic dishes to your plate.

ltalia con gusto e amore is for people who are passionate about Italy and that have a passion for the authentic and honest food. Each region is culinarily unique. It’s a guide to the original street dishes of the dazzling cultural cities, but also to the genuine delicacies of the dreamy medieval villages. As if time has stood still. The many tips and facts will inspire you for your next trip to Italy.
