9780141009582: Ripe for the Picking (Om)

During the course of Annie Hawes' new book, local culinary superstar, Ciccio, gradually takes over as Annie's constant companion. How irresistible is a man who first demonstrates his affection and esteem by inviting her into his vineyard to help himmix up cow manure, which she spends the afternoon slapping onto an old pizza oven to improve its insulation, before driving her at terrifying speed to a Herbie Hancock concert? But even with Ciccio's help, the everyday life of Ligurian folk never seems to lose its surreal edge for Annie. How long does she have to stay at Diano San Pietro before it all becomes normal run-of-the-mill stuff and ceases to amaze her? Will she ever manage to go native?

Product Description:

In this travelogue, the sequel to "Extra Virgin", local culinary superstar, Ciccio, gradually takes over as Annie Hawes' constant companion. He is a man who first demonstrates his affection and esteem by inviting her into his vineyard to help him mix up cow manure, which she spends the afternoon slapping onto an old pizza oven. From discovering a nearby village whose lands are jointly owned by a family of prostitutes and a bunch of priests to being besieged by goats belonging to an (alleged) ex-marijuana-grower turned organic salami producer, Annie begins to wonder: how long does she have to stay before it all becomes normal run-of-the-mill stuff and ceases to amaze her?

Product Description:

Annie Hawes, author of "Extra Virgin", is now the proud owner of a crumbling hillside cottage. Her neighbours are called the Spring Onions and believe they are the rightful owners of a village called Goat Number One.
