Beaneaters & Bread Soup by Lori De Mori and Jason Lowe brings Tuscany to life. Known for its luscious landscapes, powerful paintings and holiday hideaways, Tuscany maintains a rich and varied food culture. Here you'll discover it.

The two Sams swiftly became part of the allotment community even if there's little detail of any actual digging in the book. Rather it marks the passage of the seasons and the breadth of the crops with rich and alluring recipes - some their own, others weeded from neighbours.

Not that you have to grow-your-own to enjoy or cook them. They concentrate, not surprisingly, on vegetables and are cool about using up "all the bits" or eating weeds or… Read more
