The Slow Food Dictionary to Regional Italian Cooking tells you everything you ever wanted to know about Italian cooking as prepared in homes, osterias and restaurants across the country. Packed with information about dishes and ingredients, tools and techniques, origins and trends, the book (which contains 40 color illustrations) will appeal to food lovers but will also be of interest to anyone curious to find out more about Italy in general - its people, its language, its history and its culture - and travelers who would like to understand the regional menus and specialties of the country in detail.
