This good-looking little book presents how to enjoy the best of Italian food, understand what is offered, and order in an Italian restaurant or street market. Complementing the Blue Guides classic Italian cultural guidebook range as preparation for and accompaniment to any visit to Italy, it offers comprehensive coverage from pizza and gelato to rare regional delicacies and fine wine, along with separate sections on such subjects as seasonal food, Mediterranean fish, Italian wines and aperitifs, and star chefs. A phrasebook-divided into 'what it means' (Italian into English, including a glossary) and 'how to ask for' (English into Italian)-will make up most of the book. Supplemented with historical information on, for example, Roman banquets or Renaissance food, plus stylish black-and-white line drawings, this guide is suitable as a gift as well as a handy reference book for the traveler's on-site use. Assembled by the Blue Guides authors and editorial team, with many years of cumulative experience visiting and eating well throughout the length and breadth of Italy.
