Hester | 2 comments Greetings! This is my first post here. In 2000, I read a great book about Italian food. I don't think it has recipes. It was more of a guide to Italy's different regions (without being a guidebook). Each chapter covered a region. There was a map, and on it were illustrations of the region's specialties. It described them, and talked about the local sagre in the area. The illustrations were drawn; there weren't any photographs.

I have been desperately looking for the book on amazon and Thriftbooks. I can't find it anywhere. Does this book sound familiar to anyone? It had a very serious-sounding title. Thank you for your time reading this.

Lynn | 3 comments Hello, Hester. I don't think this is the book you are looking for, but it is similar. It is a beautiful book divided into regions with a small map of the region in the corresponding section. There are descriptions of the regions, what they are known for and recipes included. Lovely photos of food and the areas. I love mine. It is titled Culinaria Italy, has about 500 pages, and appears to have been published in Germany although it is written in English. The publisher is www. ullmann-publishing.com. ISBN 978-3-8331-1049-8. Most likely I picked this up in Barnes and Noble on their Bargain Books table about 5 ? years ago.
