Here are the ultimate companion guides to the foods of the world and where to find them. Lavishly illustrated in four-color throughout, these books will take you beyond the obvious, to the traditional cuisines and delicacies of the regions. You'll also get suggestions for where to stay and where to eat when visiting a particular region, recommendations for dishes and "not-to-be-missed" chefs, and suggestions for where to shop and what to buy.
Sample local wines in neighborhood cantinas or climb a mountain to a refuge where the guides will cook for you; visit cheese dairies, vineyards, and trattoria with Frommer's! You'll also get the rundown on Italian wines and where to find them, gift-giving recommendations, and highlights of regional artisans and the foodstuffs they produce.

Italy, the most simpatico country on earth
Yes, we readily confess that we do have a real soft spot for Italy. And who doesn't? This is still undoubtedly the most simpatico country on earth, not least because of its rich and varied tradition of hospitality that begins always with a plate of food, a glass of wine. This guide, like its sister volume to France, is at once practical -- detailing regional and local foods and wines, and including hundreds of addresses of places to visit, where to eat -- as well as inspirational. It is indispensable both for the armchair traveller yearning once more for Italy, as well as for the visitor on the spot -- whether in popular places such as Florence or Venice or in deepest rural Italy such as Calabria or Sardinia.
Discusses the food and wines of each region of Italy and recommends restaurants, specialty shops, local markets, and vineyards.
