Italian cooking – more than just recipes

I came across this interview with Maria Liberatti on her virtual book tour to promote her new book, Basic Art of Italian Cooking. The book is being described as a recipe novel versus a mere cook book. It’s about more than following the recipes, an attempt to evoke the whole experience and atmosphere of preparing the meal and bask in pleasure of eating with family and friends. The book aims to appeal to those interested in travel, food and culture.

I do enjoy the food when I visit Italy. I agree with Ms Liberatti when she advises travellers to look for restaurants serving authentic local food to enhance your trip experience. If you are really into Italian food and cookery why not go on a cooking holiday in Italy.
