Having just spent two precious weeks in Umbria in July and the beginning of August singing with Umbrian Serenades (and missing my fellow Serenaders terribly), I was overjoyed to learn of a lovely cookbook featuring Umbrian fare. My copy arrived at my door this afternoon. Looking through the text, I found recipes using truffles (not inexpensive here in America) and a divine recipe for almond biscotti that I am going to essay before the Holidays commence—if only to practice before showtime. Having been to Umbria three times in succession, I can say the experience was memorable—and not just for the food which was incredible.
The book is by Julia Della Croce. Find it at Abebooks and experience the beauty of Umbrian cuisine.
