The award winning Italian cookbook Florentine is a collection of recipes and photographs from Florence, Tuscany’s capital.
“Florentine is a book that appeals both to my sense of nostalgia (I lived in Florence, working as a chambermaid, when I was 19) and my appetite … ith gorgeous pictures of Florence, and snatches of Florentine life, but is far from being a coffee-table book: the recipes take you there just as evocatively.” –Nigella Lawson
Author Emiko Davies draws on her extensive knowledge of traditional Florentine cuisine to share recipes that transport readers to the piazzas of the city. From her torta di mele – a reassuringly nonna-esque apple cake – to ravioli pera e ricotta – mouthwateringly buttery pear and ricotta ravioloni – allow yourself to be taken on a culinary tour through the city.
With beautiful food and location photography, Florentine is exquisitely produced as a clothbound hardback with sprayed page edges.
This new 2020 edition includes a bonus insider’s Florence guide written by author Emiko Davies, explaining how to get the best out of 24 hours in the city, and where to find the best pastries, bistecca, and cook’s tools.
