About the Author:

Anna del Conte was born in Milan. Her books include Classic Food of Northern Italy, which won the Guild of Food Writer's Book Award, and The Edible Mushroom Book. In 1994 she won the prestigious Premio Nazionale de Cultura Gastronomica Verdicchio d'Ora Prize for dissemination of knowledge about authentic Italian food. In 2010 she won the Guild of Food Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. Laura Edwards is the photographer for Kitchin Suppers.

From Booklist:

In any contest to name America's favorite ethnic food, Italian surely wins hands down. Spaghetti, pizza, and Parmesan cheese are as much yearned for as comfort foods as hamburgers or apple pie. Genuine Italian cooking may be subtler and more refined than most Americans understand, but increasing sophistication in American taste has expanded demand for more Italian dishes to polenta, fresh mozzarella, and similar Italian basics. Anna Del Conte has written a new approach to Italian cooking for Americans that, while not ignoring the obvious regionalism of Italian cuisine, seeks to find common ground for the cooking of the entire peninsula. Gastronomy of Italy begins by summarizing each region's contributions to the national whole and offering a list of each province's most typical dishes. Brilliant photographs accompany recipes to make these foods more appealing. Recipes call for ingredients easily found in most city markets. A glossary of common Italian foods helps sort out such issues as salted versus canned anchovies as well as obscure regional products. A smaller list of techniques and cooking terms defines kitchen processes. Mark Knoblauch
