My new book Seeing and Savoring Italy©, A Taste and Travel Journey through Northern Italy, Tuscany and Umbria will be coming out this summer and I wanted all my blog buddies to know. Based on a collection of defining moments of a taste and travel journey over 10 years and 10,000 miles eating, traveling, cooking and shopping with my Italian family and friends, it includes samples of the most memorable meals I’ve had in Italy where eating is said to be an art and travel an unforgettable experience. I’ll be posting excerpts from the book over the next few weeks so let me know what you think. Here is a description of the book from the back cover.
Drawing on the historical and cultural traditions of Italian food and culture with personal anecdotes on her experiences, the author takes you on a taste and travel journey through Northern Italy, Tuscany and Umbria to hidden and little know places with her Italian family and friends. Along the way she develops a style of travel that pairs the pleasures of eating with the history and art of the region that results in a unique travel experience way beyond a “show and tell tour”.
