Buongiorno Frances, I loved your books and thank you for them. My question is about food. What dish would you recommend ordering when traveling to Venice and Cortona?
For my best advice about Tuscan food, check my The Tuscan Sun Cookbook, where I gathered all my best recipes, such at Tuscan Ribs, Baked Pasta with Four Cheeses, and lots of others. In Venice--black risotto, and whatever fish looks the boldest and freshest. I love the little lobsters. Yum!
