"We love that before cranking up the heat at the stove, Todorovska pauses to make sure we have a deep understanding of the ingredients that are the fundamentals of Puglian cuisine. She writes for the home cook, with no fancy tricks, no hard-to-find ingredients." Chicago Tribune
"For those who want a taste of excellent, yet different Italian cooking, The Puglian Cookbook is not to be missed." Midwest Book Review
"The region's flavorful cucina povera (peasant cuisine) is the subject of The Puglian Cookbook, a new book from Chicago-based Viktorija Todorovska, a passionate ambassador of the oft-overlooked area. Of Amazon.com's nearly 100,000 cookbooks, hers is one of only three focusing on Puglian cooking, and it catalogs the area's legume-, vegetable- and tomato-heavy dishes with great enthusiasm." Tasting Table
"The Puglian Cookbook: Bringing the Flavors of Puglia Home, paints a vivid picture of the region and its culinary traditions." WBEZ-FM, Chicago Public Media
"This is the kind of book you picture well-worn and loved, spattered with olive oil and maybe some tomato sauce. A cookbook that won't leave the kitchen." Marcia Crawford, Nutrition Minute
"...a 157-page collection of the essentials of Pugliese cooking, with recipes ranging from a tomato-topped flatbread known as puddica to baked squid stuffed with cheese, breadcrumbs, and capers to the potato, rice, and mussel casserole tiella." Mike Sula, Chicago Reader
"Arrivederci fast foods and trans fats! Viktorija Todorovska...[is] bringing the foreign experience to kitchens everywhere with her new cookbook, The Puglian Cookbook. The quick fix meals are simple, savory and, most importantly, healthy, with their basic pantry ingredients, fresh herbs, some cheese and olive oil." Today's Chicago Woman
"...turns humble spuds into something still simple but very flavorful, and adds some veggies to your diet, too." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I have traveled Europe extensively and cooked for many years. I have seen few books that are this well organized, distinct, and elegantly photographed. At the same time, the material is succinct, the recipes written for American and Metric measurements, and the stories completely engaging. I am thrilled to have purchased this book.
In fact, I became more and more enthused and exhilarated with each line. As I devoured it page by page I realized something wonderful was happening within me. Long ago I had traveled to a faraway land. Memories lingered in my mind. Smells would on occasion cause a scene to flash before my eyes. A song would stop me in my step. I often found a longing tugging my heart.
I had known for a brief moment the art of living. I remember watching men, usually elegant, gentleman thoughtfully holding round objects in their hands and then after careful deliberation gently tossing those balls into the air. Each would follow the ball through the air and hold themselves frozen in a graceful stance until the ball hit the ground at precisely the point they had aimed for. The game of Petanque, played in the Provence like no other place.
I could not stop reading this book!
At 5:00PM with the cool air and bright afternoon sun streaming across the deck I settled down in the chair to begin my read. Like magic I was immediately transported back to Provence! The words, the flow, the experiences continually painted on each page accented by lush and beguiling photos... no stopping. Only the darkness and hunger forced me inside where I quickly satisfied the hunger and retired to my favorite reading spot to continue.
Arriving at the recipe section provided me another thrill as I read through each of them savoring every potential taste! No ‘culinary’ book has ever held my attention so completely. I wanted to immediately order 50 more copies to share with every client who is planning travel to Provence. What a totally wonderful introduction this book is for any potential traveler to this complex region.
There is something in this book that I only began to grasp in Todorovska’s two previous works. Although each of those have been such joys to read and cook from, this one, Provence Food And Wine The Art of Living, brought forth a desire and longing I had buried deep within. The desire to return to Provence!
I cannot begin to fully explain this. I am so hungry to return and explore Provence. To fully live the life of Provence, to taste the food and to smell the wine. To experience again the Art of Living Provencal style. Never has a book so touched me.
Thank you, Viktorija, for writing and creating such a treasure. Francois Millo must be a jewel to work with. The thoughtful sharing one feels throughout this book is both gratifying and stimulating. Please express to Francois my joy at being in the pictures!
I do hope to see more from Todorovska and Millo in the near future.
