I received this book as a gift a few years ago and have used it often. The recipe's are imaginative, easy and always well recieved by family and guests. The recipe's ingredients are basic and credible. And of course, the presentation in this book is a knockout! The food, the scenery, the dishware. All top drawer.

This is a book that lives up to its name in all respects. The color photos (250) are warmly, rustically lit. These carefully composed still lifes entice the earthier senses with taste and aroma and give the reader a yen for this beautiful region. And the recipes, arranged by course, highlight regional dishes from the simple -- Chicken in Red Wine, Chestnut and Rice Soup to the unusual -- Salt Cod and Mint Soup, Spaghetti with Sea Urchin Sauce to the sublime -- Snails with Sausage and Tomato Sauce, Pheasant Broth, Ricotta Tart.

When you're an American expat living in Tuscany, your native friends and neighbors generally think that you can't cook worth beans, and your microwave must be your best friend. This is a beautiful book with characteristic food photographs taken in luscious Tuscan villas, or rustic farmhouse terraces, surrounded by wisteria blossoms, and always an inviting glass of white or red wine. It also an excellent cookbook, providing truely authentic recipes and precise instructions, enabling me to cook (almost) as well as my mother-in-law!
