Inspired by the exquisite paintings of the 17th–century Florentine artist Giovanna Garzoni, Mike Newton’s color–drenched photographs bring to life the beauty of luscious, sun–ripened fruit. The gentle art of the court miniaturist to the Medici is reflected in these gorgeous still lifes of bursting summer figs, the season’s first sweet strawberries, the velvety seductiveness of a peach. To complement these images, celebrated Italian cook Lorenza de’Medici (a direct descendent of Garzoni’s patrons), offers an elegant narrative and 100 Tuscan–inspired recipes. Among the delicious main dishes are Pork Loin with Apricots, Duck Breasts with Cherry Sauce, and Fig and Tuna Skewers, and to end the meal, there are plenty of enticing desserts, including Chocolate Peach Tart and Strawberry Tiramisu. A book to inspire cooks, art lovers, and gardeners alike.About the Author:
