As Italian chefs continually explore new ways to enjoy their country's harvest, Solo Verdura reflects the latest in today's Tuscan cooking.

Anne Bianchicaptures the Italian passion for good food with contemporary recipes and engaging vignettes about the countrv and its people. Beginning with "Essentials," Solo Verdura includes helpful tips on how to buy, store, and clean various vegetables, from the ever-popular porcini mushroom to the relatively unknown salsify, cardoon, and celeriac.
