CONTAINING MORE THAN three hundred recipes, Claudia Roden’s timeless and enchanting book is set against a backdrop of the story of Italy and its people and is the most authoritative and approachable guide to one of the world’s best-loved cuisines by one of the great food writers of our time.
For an entire year Roden traveled up and down Italy, through every region, taking in city and countryside, to discover the local specialties on their home ground. She visited the kitchens of both professional and private cooks, watching them at work and listening to their stories. From simple and rustic to grand bravura, the recipes collected here represent traditional regional dishes as they are cooked today in Italy, and as they can now be cooked with ease and delight in our own kitchens. The Sunday Telegraph has called The Food of Italy, “Excellent . . . a collection of delicious recipes chosen on the basis of strong flavors and ease of preparation.” “A glorious feast of a book, a splendid history, geography and cooking lesson rolled into one,” says the Financial Times.
“Claudia Roden is no more a simple cookbook writer than Marcel Proust was a biscuit baker. She is, rather, a memorialist, historian, ethnographer, anthropologist, essayist, poet.”-- Simon Schama
“Claudia Roden’s The Food of Italy is one of the most used and loved books on our bookshelf. Her knowledge and understanding of the regions and their food and culture makes this one of the most authentic of all Italian cookbooks.”-- Ruth Rogers And Rose Gray, The River Café

CLAUDIA RODEN was born and brought up in Cairo and educated in Paris and in London, where she now lives. Widely admired as both a great cook and a fine writer, she is the author of several books, including The New Book of Middle Eastern Food and The Book of Jewish Food. The Food of Italy grew out of “The Taste of Italy,” a series of articles she wrote for the Sunday Times of London. Her writing has been awarded many prestigious international prizes, including five Glenfiddich Awards, the James Beard Award in the United States, the Versailles Award in France, and the Prince Claus Award for Culture in the Netherlands.Review:
"Timeless... Completely approachable for home cooks" Daily Telegraph "So much more than a catch-all Italian cookbook. Claudia's writing puts the romance back into ubiquitous dishes such as panzanella and bolognese, and gives context to classic flavour combinations and techniques we take for granted... It's time to fall back in love with Italian mama food, guided by the mama of cookery writing and food anthropology" -- Eve O'Sullivan Guardian "Claudia's erudite style remains as compelling as ever" Waitrose Kitchen "The writing is peerless, the recipes as meticulous as you would expect from perhaps the planet's finest food writer" Observer "'My favourite cookbook is Claudia Roden's Food of Italy. Her writing is wonderful and she is incredibly thorough. I love this book in particular.'" Russell Norman, Polpo
