A legendary destination on Italy's Mediterranean shoreline, the Amalfi Coast is renowned for dramatic, romantic vistas and hearty cuisine which leans heavily on seafood.
This attractive survey of the region, which covers some 25 miles of cliffs and seashore but a much greater extent of visitors’ imaginations, draws heavily on home cooking, with dishes such as fusilli with prawns, white beans, and mint, calamari with potatoes, grilled lamb with anchovy dressing, and chard stems with tomatoes and olives. Desserts seem less distinctive, though plenty appealing, including a lemon and strawberry tiramisu.
Authors Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi own a trio of Italian restaurants in the UK; he is a native of Tuscany.
