Acquacotta Cookbook - Recipes and Stories from Tuscany's Secret Silver Coast
Discover the cuisine of a secret part of southernmost Tuscany, a sliver of land known as La Costa D’Argento — the silver coast. Named for the shimmery salt-and-pepper sand along this part of the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is a region of rolling hills, long beaches, overgrown fig trees, rambling vineyards – and rich culinary history.
In this beautiful cookbook Acquacotta, by Tuscan-based, Australian-born writer and photographer Emiko Davies there are her Italian family’s best-loved recipes from Capalbio, Monte Argentario, Giglio Island and inland to the hot springs of Saturnia and the ancient Pitigliano. In words and pictures, Emiko guides readers through the use of local ingredients, as well as sharing the history of rustic, storied dishes including scampi and potato soup, hand-rolled strozzapreti noodles, spinach and ricotta tortelli, chestnut gnocchi and the classic fig and chocolate bread, pagnotella.
