The Tuscan year

by:Romer, Elizabeth

In 1972 Elizabeth Romer moved to a farmhouse in Tuscany, where she discovered a life moulded by the past and tasted the simple, sublime flavours of traditional Italian cooking for the first time. Here, she introduces the Cerotti family who farm one section of the valley, and vividly describes, month by month, the Tuscan year. From January's prosciutto and salame, to cheese-making in March, to threshing the corn in high summer, to the game and chanterelles of autumn, and the chestnut woods of November and December. In the heart of the Cerotti household wonderful meals are prepared using fresh and simple ingredients, governed by the rhythms of the changing seasons. Elizabeth Romer presents the fare for high days and holidays as well as every day, from fresh garlic and wild herbs to fried flowers and carnival cakes. This magical book reveals the secrets of an ancient way of life and cuisine, with dozens of delicious recipes to bring the flavour of Tuscany to any kitchen.

Beppina and the kitchens of Arezzo : life and culinary history in an ancient Tuscan city

by:Romer, Elizabeth

Elizabeth Romer lives in the village or Arezzo, in Tuscany, during the cold winter months. She and her husband also live a rustic life in an Italian country farmhouse, but it is cut off by snow in the winter. She tells us about the culinary history of the region, historical cooks, their recipes gathered from editions of their original cooking books, and versions cooked by Beppina, whose account of life in Arezzo the author came across in a dusty shop. The result is a wonderful account of the produce, traditions and recipes, all given in detail. From Baroque times to the present day, the reader will feel they are walking through the market and gardens of Arezzo, sampling wines, cheeses and country produce that could be taken home to cook delicious meals with.
