I don't know how many times I made the Torta di Mele from the recipe in the book. It's so delicious!

There are just some cookbooks that you can read before bedtime, and this is one of them. Ok, so it's a little awkward to hold. Set the book down on the counter and lean over it. Pore over those beautiful pictures, and learn about the way things are done in a place where microwaves don't rule the world.

This book makes no compromises because it's not trying to get you to cook a certain way. It's trying to tell you what traditional foods are like. It's old-school. It's gorgeous. And the recipes are
A good collection that's representative of the region's cuisine, but, in the series, not nearly as good as the Provence edition.

I wasn't crazy about this book. I wanted more recipies. IT was also HUGE! Wouldn't fit on my bookshelf. Returned.
Please can I go to Tuscany and cook for my fabulous friends from this book?
