This intensely personal book on the Piemonte is a delight. It is a gorgeous pictorial survey of the entire region. The narrative brings a nice personal touch. And the recipes seem to be delicious. I plan on cooking several.

The Piedmont is the one region north of Rome that we have not visited. I am already planning my next visit to Italy based on this book.

A very passionate insight into northern Italy's produce basket, Piemonte. This is a region little known by the rest of the world and after reading this book by Manuela I still can't understand how it remains out of the limelight. A beautifully designed book filled with fantastic photographs and delicious recipes- highly recommended to those who get equal joy out of all things food!

you can flip through the book at her website which isn't too bad an idea, [...]

There really aren't many worthy books about the Piemonte region of Italy but this one definitely does it justice. Gorgeous photography, excellent and informative text, good recipes. The only thing that mars the book is the annoying frequency in which the author appears in otherwise wonderful photographs.

Lovely photos of the land, people and food. Text describes the history, industry, agriculture and the food. I loved the sections on producing cashmere cloth and the truffle market. Head inside bag sniffing truffles is one of my favorite photos.
