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. 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.
