    Book Description
    From Library Journal
    For the third book in her farmhouse series, Loomis traveled all over Italy, meeting and talking with vintners, cheese makers, olive growers, balsamic vinegar makers, and farmers, gathering delicious recipes and picking up invaluable culinary secrets, or segretos. There are Stuffed Sage Leaves from Tuscany, Lush Tomato Salad from Sicily, Pasta with Fava Beans and Basil from Liguria, Braised Artichokes from the Amalfi peninsula, and more. Thoughtful wine suggestions are included with many recipes, and there are dozens of boxes and sidebars about the people Loomis met and all sorts of other topics. Lynne Rosetto Kasper explored some of this same territory in The Italian Country Table (Scribner, 1999)Din fact, some of the same people are mentioned in both booksDand Loomis, whose ties are more to France, lacks Kasper's authority on the subject; however, she ventured farther afield than Kasper and her recipes represent a greater range of Italy's regional cooking. With its 200 simple but mouthwatering recipes, readable and informative text, and charming illustrations, her book is highly recommended.

    Product Description:
    They are Val d'Aosta cheese producers. Grandchildren of Sicilian sharecroppers returning to the soil. A restaurateur's family specializing in glorious peppers. They're Italian farmers, vintners, ranchers, market gardeners, olive growers. They're as passionate about cooking and eating food as they are about raising it, and they each have their own segreti--secrets--of cuisine and craft.

    Now Susan Herrmann Loomis, the critically acclaimed author and farmhouse cooking authority whose previous Farmhouse Cookbook and French Farmhouse Cookbook have 238,000 copies in print, continues her series by going to the very source--the farmhouse kitchen and the cooks who practice there--to discover the heat and soul of Italian cooking. A collection of over 250 recipes that are gutsy, fresh, healthy, and easy-to-make, Italian Farmhouse Cookbook is an original, extraordinary contribution to America's love affair with Italian food. This is the real deal--earth Green Beans with Pancetta; Gorgonzola and Goat Cheese Crostini; Lemon and Pine Nut Tagliatelle; Sicilian Orange Salad; Farmhouse Herbed Lamb Chops; Francesca's Pepper Pizza; Ricotta Cheese Torte; and Corrado's Almond Cake. It's pure delizioso, spoken with a rustic accent, full of life and authenticity.
