A natural follow-up to Rizzoli's many successful Italian cookbooks, this book offers a more authentic take on Italian vegetarian cooking than almost any cookbook in the category. It will appeal to fans of Lidia Bastianich and Mario Batali who seek a more direct insight into Italian cooking, straight from the source--with the impressive bona fides that only the Slow Food snail symbol can provide.
This celebration of vegetarian Italian cooking is unmatched in authenticity and scope, and draws on traditional recipes from every region--from Aosta and the Veneto to the tip of the boot and the islands.
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with more than 200,000 supporters in the USA. It was founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food traditions, counteract the rise of fast life, and combat people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, and how food choices affect the world around us. Founded in Italy, it is now active in more than 160 countries and involves millions of participants. Slow Food runs two international conferences annually and organizes hundreds of other events, both through its headquarters and via its more than 1,500 local chapters
