Colman Andrews is the former editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine and an internationally acclaimed food and travel writer. He is the author of numerous classic and definitive cookbooks.
"I love the book, the recipes, and the pictures! Colman Andrews has gone country with The Country Cooking of Italy - that is, gone to where cooking is simple, from the soul, micro-regional, and always seasonal. In this book, Colman has captured deliciously the soul of Italian country food."Tutti a Tavola a Mangiare....- Lidia Bastianich, Chef/Restauranteur "Substantive and succinct. Colman Andrews tops the list of food writers of our generation. He teaches me every day."-Lydia Shire, Chef/Restaurateur "The only thing better than the anticipation of a new Colman Andrews cookbook is the arrival of the book itself. Reading Country Cooking of Italy, I am torn between getting on the next flight to Italy and going into my kitchen to start making the inspiring and delicious recipes. This extraordinary book, by a brilliant writer, will make better cooks of us all."-Ruth Rogers, Chef/Co-Owner, The River Cafe, London "For me, Italian cuisine has always been more about the spirit of cooking than following a strict old world code of authenticity. Colman captures this spirit beautifully in The Country Cooking of Italy."-Andrew Carmellini, Chef/Restaurateur
