5.0 out of 5 stars An enticing taste of Italy from an insightful author
Once again Frances Mayes has produced another wonderfully evocative insight into her life in Tuscany. 'In Tuscany' is the perfect complement to her other two books, 'Bella Tuscany' and 'Under the Tuscan Sun' and this time the beautiful photographs help to capture the essence of her and her husband's life at Bramasole. As I turned each page of the book I was transported...

3.0 out of 5 stars An upmarket cookery book !
Some quite nice photography, some good recipes and some very pleasant insights and memoirs did not add up to the sum of its parts for me.
I felt this was like an advert for the businesses in and around Cortona but it's probably still worth purchasing if you are a Tuscan addict! Certainly I commend you to stay in this area and I know you will love Ricardo and Silvia...

3.0 out of 5 stars An upmarket cookery book !, 7 Dec 2003

This review is from: In Tuscany (Hardcover)
Some quite nice photography, some good recipes and some very pleasant insights and memoirs did not add up to the sum of its parts for me.
I felt this was like an advert for the businesses in and around Cortona but it's probably still worth purchasing if you are a Tuscan addict! Certainly I commend you to stay in this area and I know you will love Ricardo and Silvia Barcacchi's "Il Falconiere" if not to stay in then at least try out the resurant. Here you can experience Slow Food at it's finest.
If you are a keen cook then Elizabeth Romer's "Tuscan Year " might suit you better but if you want to learn more about the area then make sure you read at least "Under the Tuscan Sun".
If you just want to read then I recommend "Swan" by the same author.
