“Gaudry takes armchair travelers and gastronomes on a tour of one of the world’s best-loved cuisines in Let’s Eat Italy! Along with well-curated recipes, this gorgeous coffee table book features stunning infographics, maps and tributes to all things Italian—from pasta to gelati to wine.”

“A design treasure: comprehensive and visually diverse, yet beautifully unified and appealing. The oversized trim and variety of visual content—food photographs, archival photographs, maps, fine art, spot illustrations, portraits, charts, to name just a few—are staggering, but never feel overwhelming. . . . Let’s Eat Italy! succeeds in feeling as exciting, rich, and complex as Italian cuisine itself.”

“This gastronomic homage to Italy starts at a simmer with a smart user’s guide and then bubbles with recipes, profiles, and ingredient spotlights. Recipes for amatriciana, carbonara, baba, and lesser-known specialties are researched and authoritative. Profiles feature cultural traditions and achievements, including Carlo Petrini and the birth of the slow food movement. These pages explore intriguing backstories of prized ingredients like basil, ‘the royal herb’; olive oil; and famous regional cheeses. There is information on proper techniques for selecting, making, and eating Italian foods including how-to’s for choosing a fig or a chocolate spread, making risotto, and eating spaghetti. A buffet of photographs, artful graphics, maps, and sidebars make for informative and inspiring browsing. Let’s Eat Italy! is a fantastic read for foodies and a luscious culinary reference. ‘Why did Cucina Italiana conquer the world?’ If pasta, pizza, and Parmesan haven’t already answered that question, this culinary compendium certainly does.”
