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Torino, each chapter includes, not just anecdotes and personal stories, but also recipes that explore the cultural and historical references that make these subjects timeless.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.
Elizabeth Minchilli is the author of numerous books on the joys of Italian life including Eating Rome and Eating My Way Through Italy. She has written for over 40 magazines and today shares her passion for Italy through her blog, her best-selling apps, and her tour company. She divides her time between a rooftop apartment in Rome and a restored farmhouse in Umbria, with her husband, Domenico.
