This is the season for lavish books on Italy and its cuisine, and the successor to Freson's beautiful The Taste of France ( LJ 1/84) is a welcome addition to the genre. Carol Field, Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, and other authorities contributed chapters on the regions of Italy from north to south, accompanied by dozens of recipes for regional specialties collected from trattorias and restaurants. Both text and recipes are strikingly illustrated with more than 300 of Freson's color photographs. Whether showing a glistening marketplace display, an artfully presented plate of antipasto, or a misty hill town, all these images are stunning, but Freson has a special gift for photographing people, and some of his Italian portraits are particularly memorable. An essential purchase.
