"Great visual writing. And the pictures Christopher Hirsheimer has long been the gold standard of food photography, but in this book she goes beyond what I thought possible--these pictures aren't food porn, they're art... You don't need an addiction to real Italian cooking to lose yourself in these pages. You can read it as a travel book. As an adventure story. As a sensual experience that yields deep pleasure for the authors--and the reader." --Jesse Kornbluth, Head Butler
