At once a collection of traditional, seasonal recipes and a guide to the area's top food markets, Giulia Scarpaleggia takes readers on a journey through her beloved Tuscany, exploring famous places but also more remote areas - from Florence's urban streets and enchanting Volterra to mountainous Garfagnana and the wilds of Lunigiana, the gentle rolling hills of Val d'Orcia, and the vineyards and olive groves of Chianti. Through photographs, words and recipes, Giulia tells the story of Florence's historic markets, local organic farmers markets, and the weekly market days held in Tuscan towns and villages. She also explores Tuscany's coastal fish and seafood markets, together with the roadside vendors of the Maremma area, with their vibrant fresh fruit and vegetable stands. With each encounter, Giulia delves into the stories of Tuscany's food markets, drawing on memories and recipes that taste of home.
