Product Details


“A sparkling and irresistible view of Italy… Mayes has a wonderful eye for detail as she lyrically describes her surroundings… Readers will want to take their time, savoring this poetic travelogue like a smooth wine.” Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Here, we are off the beaten track, soaking in the distinctive sunlight, traditional cuisines, architecture, and geographical features of each area…providing delightful trattoria recipes, poetry and anecdotes. Readers will definitely eat well by staying by her whimsical and conversational side.” Library Journal (starred)

“Mayes has arranged her memoir geographically from north to south, rather than chronologically, to allow readers to peruse the sections randomly, perhaps using the book as a companion guide to their own trip. Her descriptions are painterly and alluring, and she includes recipes for memorable dishes—grilled prawns with fennel and olives, sea bream poached in special seasoned broth, lemon ricotta tart, gnocchi with wild hare, and crispy octopus—that are likely to whet the prospective traveler’s appetite. A charming homage to upscale travel through Italy.” Kirkus Reviews
