Authentic Italian Cookbooks

Most Italian recipe and cookbooks are not at all authentic. You might eat some tasty meals, but they most certainly won't be anything like the cuisine of Italy.

I was amazed when I moved to Italy ten years ago to find that certain dishes like Pasta Alfredo don't even exist in Italy. Ten years later I am much the wiser.

With the help of my Italian wife I have selected some of the most wonderful books on Italian cooking. These books contain superb cooking tips, great recipes but that is not all. Much more than just recipes they also offer a window onto a wondrous world. Explore a vibrant colorful country, a country where food is an essential part of the Italian way of life. These books leave you not only hungry and with a desire to start cooking, they also leave you with a hunger to journey to the villages, markets and country towns so lovingly portrayed.

This article focuses on one of my favorites:

A Passion for Piedmont: Italy's Most Glorious Regional Table

An absolutely beautiful book, the author is both poet and cook, brilliantly evoking atmosphere and sharing Piedmont's great recipes and food. Piedmont is little known outside of Italy but is as beautiful as Tuscany and the cuisine is far superior. The photos in this book are exceptional and together with the passionate writing of the author they will have you longing to follow in her footsteps.
