Three of Marlena de Blasi's bestselling romantic, food-entwined memoirs set in luscious Italy now in one deliciously romantic volume.
A Thousand Days in Venice
A Thousand Days in Venice is filled with the flavours, sights and life of Venice. In de Blasi's evocative prose every trip to the food markets becomes an adventure, and every mouth-watering recipe a celebration of food and love.
Reluctantly leaving Venice behind her, Marlena de Blasi travels with her Italian husband south to begin their new adventure. It's in San Casciano dei Bagni, a small Tuscan village that Marlena and Fernando hope to find a rural way of life in which they can both share. Another delicious combination of authentic Italian life, food, recipes, love and memoir.
An Umbrian Love Story
A lush and evocative account of when Marlena moved with her beloved Fernando to the beautiful town of Orvieto, in Umbria. Continues Marlena's passionate love affair with Fernando, with Italy, and with food.
