La dolce vita.

Florentine, written by Food52 columnist Emiko Davies, is a transporting passeggiata (stroll) through the Northern Italian city of Florence, past its fragrant pasticcerias (pastry shops), humming trattorias (cafes), and joyfully frenzied mercatos (markets). The city of Florence is not known for is gastronomical innovation, but rather a loyalty and reverence for the humble, hearty dishes its residents have been preparing since the Renaissance.

This is not merely a pasta cookbook, though you will find recipes for a versatile Sugo Toscano (meat sauce), pear and ricotta ravioloni, and a rich duck pappardelle. Florentine cuisine favors meat, so carnivores will delight in a traditional, juicy Bistecca (steak) and Pollo Fritto (italian-style fried chicken). And, not to fear, there’s an entire chapter devoted to straightforward but soul-satisfying sweets, like Frittelle di Riso (rice fritters) and Sfogliatine (sweet puff pastries).

When you open the beautiful, traditionally marbled cover of Florentine, you’ll be stepping onto Florence’s cobblestone streets, with an undiscovered storefront just right around the corner.

Comes with a signed bookplate.
