More About the Author

Keith Floyd was a highly acclaimed and influential chef whose groundbreaking television series not only changed the way cookery programmes were made, but introduced a nation to the joys of food. He made more than twenty series and authored over twenty-five books. In later years he lived quietly in France. He died on 14 September 2009.

Product Description


Floyd's words and pictures brings to life the Italians' mastery of and feeling for presenting and cooking food. There are photos of markets such as the famous fish one in Venice near the Rialto, where the toughest looking men lay out their fish with all the delicacy of painters arranging a still life. All the best Italian ingredients are represented in the book. There are pictures of autumnal market stalls selling orange, scarlet and brown funghi, from "porcini" to "avoli", pale green fennel and dark green artichokes, plump dark olives, and varying shades of white and cream cheeses. Floyd has compiled illustrated essays on, for instance, a hunt in the Umbrian countryside for the magical white truffle, the preparation by an Italian chef of fresh pasta, the cooking of a truly authentic Bolognese sauce. There are pictures of landscapes all over Italy from the Alps to Sicily, cityscapes, restaurants and cafes.

I would urge any fan of Floyd to buy this book. Beautifully written it positively fizzes with his love of life and food.

This is a serious jaunt through the food of Italy. The recipes are simple and approachable. It really is a delightful read. Cooks and non cooks will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Italian cook book that goes beyondits remit. 11 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a cookery book with a difference. Plenty of good quality photographs of rural Italy. It is written in a guide book style that has some good recipes in it that come with the Keith Floyd touch. This is an entertaining read that is better than most.
