Biba's Italy
Favorite Recipes from the Splendid Cities

by Biba Caggiano

Biba's Italy Who better to capture the food and soul of authentic Italian cuisine than five-time cookbook author (with more than 600,000 copies of her books in print), award-winning chef and restaurant-owner Biba Caggiano?

In her new book, Biba's Italy: Favorite Recipes from the Splendid Cities, Biba guides food lovers along a culinary tour of Italy's five great dining destinations—Rome, Florence, Bologna, Milan and Venice—with personal recollections of her life in Italy sprinkled throughout.

Biba's Italy is part cookbook, part culinary road map, with recipes native to each region along with travel tips on restaurants, wine bars, gelaterie, food markets, and cooking schools. Highlights from cities include:

When in Rome...sample local wine and food at places such as Checchino dal 1887, Enoteca Ferrara and Hostaria Romanesca. Recipes include Bucatini with Pancetta, Pecorino, and Black Pepper, and Roman Sweet Buns with Raisins and Pine Nuts.

  • BOLOGNA—Indulge in the wines of Emilia-Romagna from Colli Piacenti and Colli Bolognesi to Lambrusco and Sangiovese di Romagna. Recipes for Italian dishes include Pork Shoulder Braised in Milk and Fava Beans with Mortadella.
  • FLORENCE—Wander through the medieval streets and don't miss the Mercato di San Lorenzo and the Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio—two of Florence's most famous food markets. Prepare regional favorites at home such as Rabbit Braised with Wine, Olives, and Sage or Ganino's Ricotta-Parmigiano-Spinach Dumplings.
  • MILAN—Fast-moving and dynamic, Milan is home to some of the most elegant restaurants in Italy such as Cracco-Peck and II Luogo di Amo e Nadia. Classic regional recipes from Milanese Saffron Risotto to Stuffed Roasted Veal bring the tastes of the Milanese table to the home table.
  • ROME—When in Rome...sample local wine and food at places such as Checchino dal 1887, Enoteca Ferrara and Hostaria Romanesca. Recipes include Bucatini with Pancetta, Pecorino, and Black Pepper, and Roman Sweet Buns with Raisins and Pine Nuts.
  • VENICE—Three of the most famous cafes in the world are located in Venice's Piazza San Marco: Caffe Florian, Caffe Quadri, and Caffe Lavena. Whipped Creamy Salt Cod with Soft Polenta and Fried Sardines in Savory Sauce are favorite recipes of the Venetian table.

Biba's Italy is a delectable collection perfect for food and travel lovers alike. Truly splendid food from splendid cities, by a splendid author.
