Why We Love This

In a wild, undiscovered corner of Tuscany called Maremma, boars roam the hillsides, olive trees stand like sentries, and fennel perfumes the air. This landscape yields its own cuisine: rustic dishes that let their seasonal ingredients shine through. There is no better place to learn the secrets of this cuisine than the Castello di Vicarello. This twelfth-century fairy-tale castle is now an exclusive resort where the proprietor, Aurora Berti, prepares meals based on the garden. In My Tuscan Kitchen, Aurora presents the many recipes she has developed over the past decade by sharing with local peasant women and drawing from her own family's traditions. This sumptuously illustrated cookbook unlocks the culinary secrets of the undiscovered area of Maremma, in Tuscany, with more than 100 recipes for the home cook. The dishes are accompanied by sidebars and photos that convey the story of this place: pruning the vineyards in winter, picking asparagus in spring, drying tomatoes for sauce in summer, and hunting porcini in fall. The recipes burst with flavor while remaining simple: black kale crostini, radicchio and walnut salad, carbonara with favas, roast pork with apples, and peach crostata.
