From the Publisher:

Inspired by the exquisite paintings of the 17th–century Florentine artist Giovanna Garzoni, Mike Newton’s color–drenched photographs bring to life the beauty and variety of garden–grown vegetables. The gentle art of the court miniaturist to the Medici is reflected in these gorgeous still lifes of sun–ripened tomatoes and eggplants and succulent pods bursting with beans. To complement these images, celebrated Italian cook Lorenza de’ Medici (a direct descendant of Garzoni’s patrons), offers an elegant, informative narrative and more than 100 Tuscan–inspired recipes. Using well–loved favorites, such as cabbage, potato, and leek, as well as the more unusual, like kohlrabi and celeriac, she offers delectable recipes for every course. A book to inspire cooks, art lovers, and gardeners alike.

About the Author:

Lorenza de'Medici has been teaching cookery for many years at her family-run school The Villa Table at Badia a Coltibuono, the eleventh-century monastery, estate and winery in Tuscany. Her name is now synonymous with Italian cookery in many households in the US, UK and Europe since her highly successful television series. She is also the author of several books including Lorenza's Pasta, Lorenza's Antipasti and A Passion for Fruit. The photographer: Mike Newton is a photographer specializing in Italian wine, food, landscapes and still-lifes. He lives in London.
