About this title


Located in the northwest region of Italy, Piedmont is recognized by Italians for having the richest of the regional cuisines, reaching its pinnacle in the fall, when the white truffles and porcini mushrooms indigenous to the area appear on the table. It is also home to the rice producing Po Valley, the motherland of risotto. Matt Kramer shares his passion for Piedmont in over 150 recipes featuring the specialties of the region-from antipasti such as Vitello Tonnato to easy, classic pasta dishes such as tajarin, Piedmonts interpretation of tagliatelle, from main courses such as Chicken Braised with Sweet Red Peppers to authentic desserts like Oven-Warmed Peaches Stuffed with Crushed Amaretti Cookies and Cocoa. An entire chapter is devoted to the world class wines of Piedmont, which include the noble Barolo and Barbaresco. With descriptive prose and beautiful color photography, just as The Splendid Table did for Emilia Romagna, A Passion for Piedmont will share the regions culinary treasures.

About the Author:

Matt Kramer, who has visited the Piedmont for the past ten years and lived there for a year, is one of Americas most acclaimed wine writers. He is the regular wine columnist for Wine Spectator, The Los Angeles Times, and Diversion magazine. He resides in Portland, Oregon.
