First published in 1988, Italy the Beautiful Cookbook (200,000 copies sold) set the standard for exquisite presentation of Italy's authentic cuisine, combining recipes with scenic photography and details of each region. Now, nine years later, with worldwide interest in Italian food booming and a new Italian cuisine emerging, this new book has new power to satisfy the cook and traveler in us all.
With the accelerated pace of contemporary life, Italians have had to change their style of eating. This has created fresh ideas, quick approaches to the classics, rediscovered heritage dishes, and a more relaxed way of assembling menus. This new style is reflected in the more than 220 recipes culled from cooks throughout Italy. Emphasis is on light first courses and vegetable dishes; simply prepared fish, poultry and meats; and homemade breads, pizzas and desserts. Photographs of each region accompany these mouthwatering recipes. From the Alps to Sicily, from the fragrant herbs of Liguria to the pungent olives of Puglia, readers will delight in rediscovering the pleasures of this inspiring beloved country.

Welcome to the Italy of your dreams. Our goal in this book was not to present a romanticized Italy, but to show you the true country in all of its beauty and color, but also in a way that expresses how Italians really live and eat now. The recipes represent contemporary Italian taste, and bear in mind that cooks in the busy modern world have less time for laborious cooking, but have not lost their interest in flavor, fragrance, texture, and quality. For readers looking for other books in a similar spirit, check out "Recipes From Paradise: Life and Food on the Italian Riviera", "Lorenza's Pasta", and "Italy for the Gourmet Traveler". Buon appetito!
