Florence. Walking through food and culture


This wonderfully evocative and magnificently illustrated volume takes readers on a series of fascinating and off-the-beaten path walks to discover Florence’s culinary and cultural heart and soul. Narrated by renowned Italian chef Fabio Picchi, Florence presents 20 locations from museum, monuments and piazzas to small coffee shops and popular hangouts – that make Florence an irresistible place for both locals and visitors alike. Picchi s personal, but informative and entertaining storytelling weaves in many recipes and suggestions for short breaks to taste seasonal treats between strolls. He also devotes a chapter to traditional Florentine recipes and where these tasty treats can be found in the city. Accompanying the author’s many musing of Florence’s art and culture are beautiful full-colour photographs, and a number of brief texts by noted British art historian Stella Rudolph.
