Show synopsis With her international bestseller, UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN, Frances Mayes shared her dream of a new life in Tuscany with millions. Now she invites us into her home to discover why the Italians know how to eat like the gods ...In all of Frances Mayes' bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. It transports, comforts, seduces and conveys perfectly the warm, friendly and down-to-earth spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating are natural pleasures in Tuscany and Tuscan food is, above all, genuino. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, welcome readers into their beloved home 'Bramasole' to share their favourite recipes and stories from twenty-one wonderful years of feasting in Tuscany. A toast to their treasured experiences over the years as honorary Tuscans, The Tuscan Sun Cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries and porcini; dinner parties stretching into the wee hours; and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes. Lose yourself in Steven Rothfeld's luscious photography of the food, the people and the place, as Frances invites you to join her and Ed in the kitchen and raise a glass at the table. Throw on another handful of pasta, pull up a chair and discover why the Italians know how to eat like the gods.
