1969 Ada Boni Italian Regional Cooking Vintage Cookbook
Hard-to-Find Italian Recipes

"Ada Boni is the best, and the best known, Italian cook and in this beautifully illustrated gift cookbook she presents the most delicious, authentic, hard-to-find Italian recipes ever collected. This is the real food of the Italian countryside and seacoast, of the cosmopolitan cities and centuries-old hill towns. The magnificent color photographs show the dishes against the local settings ~~ vineyards and tiled roofs, fountains and Palladian palaces, rocky coasts and Renaissance churches ~~ and make this book an illustrated gastronomic tour to ravish the eye as well as delight the palate.
"The culinary treasures have been mined from fourteen main regions and many of the recipes have never before appeared in any cookbook. The recipes cover appetizers and soups, pasta, main dishes (meat, fish, cheese and vegetable) and desserts. All recipes have been tested and fully adapted.
"In an introduction to each region, Ada Boni describes the countryside, its people, its cuisine, and its specialties, particularly its cheeses and wines."

Then come the recipes ~ 25 to 30 per region for a total of over 300 unusual, delicious preparations. Skill levels from basic to master. Not too many unusual ingredients.Both US and UK measures. All in all, another wonderful book by the author of the classic Talisman Cookbook, Ada Boni :)

The book is in excellent condition. The dust cover shows some light wear & age-toning. There is a name inked on the top of the first page. But other than that, the book is perfect ~ no writing, no stains, no folds, no tears, no age-toning. The spine is perfect. The pages are clean and very bright. This book was obviously barely if ever used. It's that clean :)

Ada Boni's Italian Regional Cooking. A lovely and sure to be valued addition to any cook's library.

A word about shipping rates & multiple item orders... While shipping is carefully calculated on each item to keep your delivery cost low, if you're interested in multiple items it may be possible to save more by combining shipping. Email me with the items you're interested in, & I will reserve the listings while we work out a combined rate to ship the all the goods in the same box. If you purchase multiple items, the shipping charges will appear high because the shipping is calculated on each item individually. I will always contact you with an accurate shipping rate before we proceed and refund any overages to your Paypal account.
