“Italian food: much loved, much appropriated,” reads the introduction in From the Source: Italy. While the vast interpretations of Italian cuisine speak volumes about its worldwide appeal, Lonely Planet sought out to bring readers real recipes by traveling to the places they originated from Lonely Planet team Sarah Barrell and Susan Wright explored every corner of Italy, from coast to coast, collecting and photographing home-grown dishes from the very families who invented or inherited them and keep them alive today. From the Source: Italy shares their stories through their food, family, restaurants and love of the abundant land that surrounds them.
Featuring tagliatelle al ragù from Bologna, a classic pizza portofoglio from Naples, a hand-rolled orecchiette from Puglia and a Piemontese vitello tonnato, From the Source: Italy brings you the recipes that define not only a sense of place but community too. Buon appetito!
