More interesting as a history book than as a cookbook.

This book focuses on two areas on the Riviera - Liguria and Nice, exclusively. Informative, well-researched. Ready to try out a handful of recipes (farinata, pesto made using mortar & pestle, focaccia, etc) More than a cookbook. FYI No photos of specific recipes included.

If you cooked nothing from this book, it's still an incredible read. The region, the history, the dialetto -- all in Andrews's very good writing.
