TASTING ITALY: A CULINARY JOURNEY
TASTING ITALY: A CULINARY JOURNEY
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
TASTING ITALY is a wonderful addition to any cookbook shelf. Packed with beautiful photographs, interesting information, and yummy recipes, I have enjoyed just spending time flipping through it. What sets this book apart from many cookbooks is the additional tidbits and histories of the food as well as the regions in Italy. As a half Italian myself who cooks her fair share of Mediterranean dishes, I can tell you all this is well worth getting. The recipes are easy to follow and oh so delicious. Tu tia tavola a mangiare!
