Cucina di Amalfi: Sun-drenched recipes from Southern Italy's most magical coastline
by Ursula Ferrigno
Discover a region in Southern Italy which offers the most tantalizing food, through 75 authentic recipes, cooked with care and attention and using the best ingredients.
Italian food reflects culture. In Italy, cooking is the product of geography, history, and religion. “Italian cooking” is really a patchwork of local and regional cuisines, all fiercely claiming to be the best in the country. Ursula Ferrigno’s own family comes from the south of Italy, and just south of Naples is the Amalfi Coast. It is widely considered to be one of Italy’s most magical locations: breath-taking (literally) winding cliff-top roads, pastel-colored houses tumbling down towards the sea, flower-framed terraces, and trees heavy with the world’s most coveted lemons at every turn. Discover the delicious food the region has to offer. Vegetable dishes take center stage and both meat and fish are eaten and often combined in exciting ways. In this seductive book you’ll find 75 recipes to enjoy, from simple antipasti and ministre (soups) to pane (bread) and pizza, risotto, pollame and carne (fish and meat), and the all-important contorni (vegetable), alongside essays on the food culture and traditions of the area and beautiful scenic imagery.
