Six years ago Stephanie Alexander and Maggie Beer went to Italy to run three cooking schools. For two months they lived in the heart of Tuscany, in a beautiful villa nestled among the vineyards and fields south of Siena. They immersed themselves in Tuscan culinary traditions. Central to the cuisine are olive oil, bread, tomatoes and wine, and grilling over a fire. The fresh and delicious recipes in this book are based on the local cuisine. The breathtaking photography by Simon Griffiths captures the food, culture, countryside and people of the region in a book that glows with the light of Tuscany.

When Australian chefs Stephanie Alexander and Maggie Beer arrived in Tuscany to run a cooking school, they had no idea how much fun they were going to have. Their Tuscan Cookbook is the result of those magical two months. Meals revolved around basic ingredients: bread, tomatoes, olive oil, and wine. The first lesson was: "The fruit and vegetables were so fresh that they had to be used immediately: when one is surrounded by produce picked when ready to eat this is exactly what one must do!" Students and teachers alike learned to produce sumptuous meals based on what the market had that morning. One day it might be Grilled Squab with a Gratin of Squash or perhaps Herbed Pasta with Fresh Tomato and Red Onion Sauce. Another day is might be Rotolo di Spinaci preceded by an antipasto with mozzarella-stuffed zucchini flowers and marinated mussels. The accompanying photos of the dishes and Tuscan life are as tantalizing as the recipes. --Dana Van NestAbout the Author:
