Ricette della tradizione - Traditional recipes
Author: Enrica Monzani
Translator: Carlo Irek, Enrica Monzani
“As always happens in every part of the world, the characteristics of a place, its history, the culture that permeates it and the character of those who live there are manifested on the table. And Liguria, in the kitchen, how is it? IS multiforme, colourful and especially full of contrasts, because Liguria itself is like this: made of high mountain which rapidly descend towards the coast, of big and of bosco, Of Levante and of West, of seafaring and peasant culture but also mercantile and cosmopolitan, shy and reserved yet open to the world.”
This book is an act of love towards flavours, territories and history of Liguria. A journey in which everything holds together: past and present, substance and lightness, simplicity and creativity. Because Enrica Monzani knows well that it is all this - and much more - that Ligurian sailors have missed for centuries during the long periods spent away from home.
