Details: Product Description 'Puglia is a region I want to get to know intimately, to understand culture, life, history and geography, reflecting through the prism of the food that's put on the tables of locals and tourists, too. I'm reminded of my 20-year old self, scribbling in notebooks as I first travelled through Italy's south, only this time I'm back to stay.'After her children grew up and left home, Sophie Grigson found herself living alone. About to turn 60, she took the decision to sell her house and most of her belongings, to pack up her car and to drive to Puglia on her own to start a new life. In a part of Italy where she didn't know anyone, having last visited the region 40 years ago, this narrative book of food writing, stories and recipes brings to life the region, its food and the local characters that she meets along the way. In the style of the cookbooks of Sophie's late mother, Jane Grigson, and also of Elizabeth David, this is a book about courage, hope, new horizons and, above all, delicious food. Book Description A journal of life, food and recipes from Puglia. About the Author Sophie Grigson is a cook, food writer and television presenter with over 20 books to her name and nine television series for BBC, Channel 4 and UKTV Food. She has also written columns and articles for the Evening Standard, Independent, Sunday Times, Country Living, BBC Good Food and Waitrose Food Illustrated. During this time she has been raising her children, running her cookery school in Oxford and presenting television shows for The Travel Channel. On a whim, after interviewing Russell Norman about Venice, in 2019 she sold her house and the majority of her belongings and packed herself into her small car to move to Puglia in the south of Italy.
