We sometimes complain that certain regions of Italy have been over-published; at the top of that list is Tuscany and its heart, Florence. Well, here’s an instance where we’re glad someone revisited supposedly familiar territory. Davies, born to a Japanese mother and an Australian father and raised in Beijing, brings a convert’s passion to her account of traditional Florentine foods and their background. Her headnotes are often more extensive than the recipes, touching on everything from culinary lore to suggestions for repurposing leftovers in true thrifty Florentine fashion. Handsome photography places the emphasis on food rather than scenery, with an occasional evocative glimpse of the Uffizi or Brunelleschi’s dome.
Color photographs throughout. Hardcover.
